04/19/2002 Entry: "Dish Draining 101"

The Physics of Dish Rack, Dish Drainer, and Sink:

A dish, after it has been washed by hand, can be placed in a dish rack for the purposes of (but perhaps not limited to) drying. Said rack is generally placed on a Dish Drainer (or, herein called DD). The lip of the DD is then set OVER (please note this preposition) the lip of the sink. Thus, water from said dishes in said rack falls onto said DD and into said sink. If the DD is placed on the counter BEFORE (a different prepositon than before) the sink, then water will not run into the sink, but all over the counter!!! I know one adult male, and one professional cleaning woman ([stever martin hommage]Cleaning woman?! CLEANING WOMAN!!! [/] steve martin hommage) who have yet to figure out this bit of physics.

You're kidding, right? I didn't mention your name. I didn't mention the office. Now, everybody looking at this will know that YOU can't operate a dish drainer. I'm just trying to have a little fun, and yet do it in a way that won't embarass anyone. Now you have to go and out yourself! You have brought this wrath upon yourself! It will only be a matter of time before the Proper Dish Drainers of the World start emailing you!
