Courage at Twilight: Dishes in the Dishwasher

At my apartment, my children always asked me after dinner, “Are the dishes in the dishwasher clean or dirty?”  At Mom’s house, that is the wrong question.  Either the dishwasher is empty or dirty.  Clean dishes are never allowed to remain in the appliance.  She empties the dishwasher immediately upon the cycle ending, despite the scalding steamy dishes.  So, when my children asked Mom if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty, she replies, “If there are dishes in the dishwasher, Dear, they are dirty.”
