Rain drops keep falling on my head....

Almost literally. Water is dripping from my overhead light fixture in the kitchen. Drip. Drip. Drip. Drip. Drip. I went up to talk to my neighbor who lives above me.

Now kiddies, don't try this at home. Leave it to the professionals, okay?

The neighbor has soap suds all over her kitchen floor.... coming from her dishwasher. She confessed, too. Tried to make a plea deal. She was out of dishwasher soap. You know where this is going, don't you. She mixed up a little 'manual' dish soap with some shampoo and tried using it in the dishwasher. Now she's a few minutes older and more wiser. And water continues to drip from my ceiling.

So just remember... don't try this at home!

hello - I nominated you for this award because I really like your blog. Don't feel like you have to link a whole lot of people if you don't want to!

Meant to say to you though.. i've done that with the washing machine myself (I used washing up liquid in it... LOTS of mess!!)

Also - see the bit above about the meme... I think it might be fishy so prob wise not to play.. contemplating removing my post. All the same - I still like your blog!

Thanks for your comments, TOPCHAMP. And listing my blog as one of your favorites (thinking blogger). I'm honored. Not sure yet if I'll partake of the meme, but it is a way to increase hit rates if thats what one is interested in doing.

And still speaking of suds... last night on the tv program America's Funniest Videos there was a short clip of a woman who had used dish soap in her foot spa. She had a tower of suds that was probably over six feet tall. Interesting timing, I'd say.
