Just wait until she sees this.
That’s what you were thinking after you unloaded the dishwasher for the first time in five-plus years. On your own. Without provocation.
When your wife comes home from the movie with the kids and sees that you loaded the dishwasher, she’s going to heap praise on you like you’ve never seen before. This praise is going to be epic. Historic. She’s going to be over the moon.
After all, it’s not everyday that a husband finishes eating and then rinses off his dish and puts it in the dishwasher. But this one did. You. You did that. Not only that, but then you figured he might as well put the other dishes that were in the sink and dirty in the dishwasher also.
You just thought you should. It just came to you. Unprovoked. That’s the kind of person we’re talking about.
She might cry. She might get so overwhelmed that she tears up and he has to explain to the kids that “mommy’s not sad; she’s happy.” Could you blame her for getting a bit emotional? You loaded the dishwasher. Yourself. Without being asked. I mean, come on.
