How Much Is A Little?
Today's story happened during the very earliest part of our marriage. We were living in our first apartment and so I'd say we'd only been married a few months at most.
My older sister told me once that if you ever run out of dishwasher detergent, you could substitute a little dishwashing liquid such as Joy or Dawn. She said it was okay to do this, and you only needed to use a little. Well how much is a little?
A few minutes later I returned to the kitchen and had quite the surprise! There was tons and tons of bubbles coming out of the dishwasher and onto the floor. I do mean TONS! The bubbles were quickly filling up the whole kitchen and it was about 6 inches deep I'd say.
I started to get a bit nervous about this. Can you imagine? Alan was home at the time and so I called him to the kitchen. Who knows what I said? "Uh honey, I think we have a little problem! What are we going to do?"
Seriously, it looked like something you'd see on a TV sitcom. Ever seen a show when someone used too much soap in the wash? You get the picture.
Alan kindly asked me to leave the kitchen. I guess I was being no help at all. LOL Somehow, he cleaned all of it up. It took quite a while. I'm sure he was slightly frustrated that I'd tried something like this. I think we had to run the dishwasher a couple more times to get rid of all that soap.
It's a pretty funny memory. Needless to say, I never tried that again. :)
This isn't me, but looks like it has happened to others too.
I atually found quite a few things on the Internet about other people who have done this!
