Over my nearly forty-six years, many people have informed me that I have a great many anal-retentive traits. Said people are correct; I do not apologize for those traits and I surmise that I have come by them honestly. In personality--if not in looks--I am very much my mother's daughter, so much so that I think that my mom's dog thinks that I'm her and my brother-in-law occasionally refers to me as the chocolate-version of his wife's mother (as opposed to the original butter-scotch version). However, when I became an adult, I thought over most of the anal-retentive traits which my mom introduced into my psyche early on and they made perfect sense--which is why I think that my anal-retentiveness is inherent rather than environmental-introduced. (Love ya, Mom!) :-)
Therefore, I felt that it would be (interesting? fun?) to start a new series called "Pet Peeve Monday."
Here's the first one. When washing dishes, always wash the outside/backside too. Additionally, when washing utensils, wash them individually. And please, please wash the handle.
