Me: (loading the dishwasher) Hey honey, I think we need to get some bigger bowls. Every time we want to have soup, it doesn’t fit into a small bowl, so we use a tupperware, but we can’t wash the tupperware in the dishwasher’s bottom level, so it just sits here all dirty until we can run multiple loads of top-light dishes.
John: So we should get more dishes?
Me: Bigger ones that can go in the bottom part of the dishwasher that will actually hold the entire can of soup. Don’t you think?
John: Okay, I’ll put it on the list. (writes silently)


…5 minutes later, looking up at the list..
Me: Uh, honey?
John: (devious smile) What? Blue is your favorite color!
