Dirty Dish Fairy

Got up this morning and hurried to the kitchen with anticipation, but my excitement immediately turned to disappointment.  The Dirty Dish Fairy had once again skipped my house.  Last night's dinner dishes decorated the counter and sink, pots and pans still on the stovetop.  I sank into the nearest chair and stared in disbelief.  How could this be, why am I always forgotten?  My friends and neighbors wake up to clean counters and sparkling dishes, but not I!  Did I do something wrong to make the Dirty Dish Fairy hate me so?  I've noticed that on occasion my offerings of left-overs have been devoured, but the dirty dishes remain.  Sadly I must accept the fact that the Dirty Dish Fairy no longer loves me.  Thats okay, I still have the Dirty Laundry Fairy!

Day 3 and still no Dirty Dish Fairy.  Have had to break out the paper plates.  The situation is getting desperate.

This is such a funny journal.  I have linked to it in mine.  Too funny!

Day 803:  Kitchen counter has become a vast wasteland of dishes stained and tarnished with remants of yester-year's meals.  Have been approached several times by Dixie corporation for monopolizing the supply of their products.  Dirty Laundry Fairy eloped with Dirty Dish Fairy in spring of last year after my failed attempt to negotiate new contract to include dish duties.  Now my house is filled with dirty dishes AND dirty laundy.  All is lost.
Unless I can get in touch with Mr. Clean, or that Janitor in a Drum dude!
