Dish Duty

I am the type of person who doesn't mind doing dirty work, I just don't like getting my hands dirty. So I have several pair of rubber gloves around my house that I use for dishes, cleaning bathrooms, etc.

Jack loves the dish gloves. He calls them "Super Gloves" (from The Incredibles movie) and is always asking if he can borrow them. He doesn't discriminate between the pink ones or the yellow ones - just whatever is handy. This is very disturbing to Mark, especially when he wears the pink ones. He always tries to get Jack to switch to the yellow, but for whatever reason, if he started with the pink, he sticks with the pink.

The other day I walked into the kitchen and much to my surprise there was my HUSBAND wearing the dish gloves (the pink ones no less!) and scrubbing away on the burner grate for our gas stove! This is one of my most hated chores and I was thrilled! However, since he always gives me a hard time about the gloves, I did what any appreciative wife would do - - get photographic proof of this momentous occasion!

After he was done with the stove, Jack decided that he needed to do some dishes too. I'm not really sure how clean the dishes turned out, but I figured why discourage free help? By the time he can really do a good job he will have no interest anyway!
