If you are as lucky as I have been in life, some day in the distant future you will be the mother of a little girl. She will be charming, cheery, and compassionate, as are you.
One day, she will turn nine years old, and, out of the blue, will seem suddenly compelled to start partaking of more grown-up, womanly activities.
You may notice her repeated applications of glitter lip gloss and pink nail polish. She may begin to ask questions about boys and bras. And, if you are the very luckiest of mothers, she may even start helping out with household chores without your prompting.
Please allow me to offer you a word of advice.
Sometime prior to the commencement of this pivotal time in your precious daughter’s life, be sure and educate her that Dawn dishwashing liquid is only for handwashing dishes in the sink, and is never (EVER) to be used in the actual dishwasher.
Failure to pass on this important tidbit of information will result in your required participation in the cleanup of gallons of bubbles which shall surely pour from the cracks and crevices around your dishwasher door onto your kitchen floor.
Ask me how I know.
P.S.F.Y.I. Salt and olive oil are effective de-bubblers. WHO KNEW?? (Google did.) (And now you do.) (You can thank me in 25 years.)
