Good luck, Murees! Your book looks and sounds great!
Now for the story:
"Bubba," my husband said. "Please load and run the dishwasher."
In case you're new here, and you don't know Bubba, he's my eleven-year-old son. There's never a dull moment with him. This is another one of those not-so-dull moments.
The boy loaded the dish washer, poured liquid soap in the appropriate holder, and started it. Ten minutes later, my daughter happened to pass the machine. She noticed bubbles coming out through the cracks. Figuring this was not good, she ran and got my husband.
He stopped the dishwasher and opened it. Now, I wasn't home to witness all of this, but he said there were so many bubbles in the dishwasher, you couldn't even see the dishes.
"Bubba!" he called.
The boy came.
"What did you do?"
"I used that blue dishwashing soap," Bubba said, pointing to the Dawn liquid dish soap sitting on the counter.
Yeah. Wrong stuff. Needless to say, the boy spent a very long time scooping bubbles out of the dishwasher. It took three additional runs to get them fully out. Hopefully now he knows the difference between dish soap and dish washing detergent!
how clean the dishes, the dishes clean. but, one question: was there screaming involved? or at least some yelling? I know yelling:ReplyDelete
I'm a frequent target.
Nope. No screaming. No yelling. It was a peaceful cleanup.Delete
lmao maybe he just wanted to have some fun with bubblesReplyDelete
I'm sure that was his plan. ;0)Delete
Hi, dear Sherry! I hope you guys had a great holiday weekend.ReplyDelete
Based on the blurb, The Amaranthine seems like an intriguing book. Does Alex J. Cavanaugh know that he is the subject of an unauthorized biography? : (Just kidding, Murees and Alex C.)
Your latest Bubba story reminds me of an episode of I Love Lucy or The Three Stooges or Leave It To Beaver, I can't remember which. I'm sure all three of those series had a similar scene in them.
Thanks for the smiles, dear friend Sherry!
That's funny about Alex. I'm sure he'll get a laugh from your comment. Bubba's bubble incident is very much like something you'd see from The Three Stooges.Delete
I remember the bubbles from Leave It to Beaver. I think Wally and the Beave put too much detergent in the washing machine. June came home and wondered why the floor was so clean.Delete
At least Bubba didn't use laundry detergent on your dishes.
That would have probably been an even bigger mess!Delete
Oh no! What a disaster. I bet your husband wasn't happy about that. Thank you so much for sharing my release info, Sherry. You are wonderful.ReplyDelete
You're very welcome, Murees. Good luck with your book!Delete
well, that is a nice cover, pity they didn't use that gorgeous dress in a better shot. Congrats to the authorReplyDelete
It would have been really cool if the back cover had the front of the dress. :)Delete
It is a gorgeous dress. I wouldn't mind trying it on!
Oh no! I bet he will pay closer attention next time--LOL! :)ReplyDelete
I certainly hope so!Delete
My daughter did the same thing when she was a young teenager. X was at home, and of course, ignored the mess. I arrived and blew a fuse, not really because she made the mistake but because neither one of them did anything about it. Thank you for featuring Murees's book. It's very good.ReplyDelete
I hear you edited it. It has to be good! ;0)Delete
Oh my goodness Sherry that sounds like a nightmare to clean... I'm lucky my youngest never that.. She certainly was curious enough xox ♡ReplyDelete
I've done it once- being the absent-minded mom, that I am. I guess Bubba didn't learn from me. ;0)Delete
maybe he was hoping he'd not be called on again for this choreReplyDelete
You may be on to something!Delete
Poor Bubba, he made a mistake. :-)ReplyDelete
How in the world did that happen? ;0)Delete
Something similar once happened to me. Well, it wasn't me. It was someone else in the household who decided to load something that had contained dishwashing soap (for hand washing) into the dishwasher. Oh, the bubbles...ReplyDelete
It's amazing how many bubbles can be generated from a little soap and a lot of water!Delete
Such things happen for everybody. Once I was using ring worm antifungal cream instead of toothpaste.ReplyDelete
I bet that tasted wonderful. Not!Delete
At least he triedReplyDelete
Yes. You have to give him some credit for effort.Delete
Congratulations to Murees! And no worries, Bubba. I did that too... as an adult. :)ReplyDelete
Haha! Me too!Delete
Whoops! Easy mistake to make or at least Mr T would say that but then he had an awful habit of putting fabric conditioner in the draw meant for powder. My response? Buy two in one tablets that go into the washing machines drumReplyDelete
That would probably avoid the problem.Delete
Yay for Murees!ReplyDelete
My son did that. I wish he could plead ignorance, but I told him only an hour before that he couldn't put that soap in the dishwasher. *sigh* Kids, eh?
Yep. They have excellent selective hearing. ;0)Delete
Bubba is very smart and he is learning fast. For a young boy of eleven to do dish washing is very commendable. His confidence to do the dish washing without asking for help is to be admired.
Interesting book review.
Our kids have been taught to help with chores around the house. Whether they like it or not is another thing. ;0)Delete
I hope your husband took a bubble-filled picture. That's a lot of cleaning up to do. Congrats to Murees.ReplyDelete
I don't believe he did.Delete
You know what? I've done this before! We were out of dishwasher soap and I thought it would work just the same. Nobody ever taught me! Anyway, I used the bubbles to mop my kitchen floor.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of anyone doing it on purpose. I guess you learned! )I bet you had a nice, clean floor afterwards!Delete
LOL! That's great:)ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Murees. The story sounds exciting! And I LOVE the cover!
