ANECDOTE 089: January 21, 2024
Getting the Nods [listen]


I

The sink was filled with dishes as was the stomach from/of the assortment prepared:
from the bowl, ladled from the pot; off of the plate, lifted out of the pan.

The last sip--the remaining glassware was placed next to the coffee mug, which was
used during breakfast; the collection crowded the edge overlooking the contents
arranged in the rounded stainless steel rectangular basin.


II

Forks, knives, spoons--heat-resistant spatulas were in the heap piled on the left
side; on the opposite, bowls towered illogically; in the center, the widest plate
circumference rested flatly on the smaller diameters; a saucer covered the
stoppled drain; encrusted cookware remained on the stove.

A svelte plastic bottle filled with an aloe-green anti-oily viscus solution, and a damp
scrub-sponge were next to a one-armed faucet; the spigot spewed warm water--
the water, the impetus, the soak sudsy.

The lathered were wiped, some scoured, all rinsed, the majority racked to drip dry,
if not, toweled and placed immediately on a cabinet shelf.


III

Vlogs influenced attentiveness to the task at hand; however, standing idle did assist
with digestion; blood circulation was aided by inert gaseous thought: rigmarole
fatigue from too much or too little mental motor skill exercise.


IV

This passivity was carried over to the couch, then propped by an armrest/throw
pillow combo; an awareness, engrossed silence, stretched across the sofa cushions;
the attempt to read from a smartphone, radiating numb bum, chin tuck nodding
caused a tracheal gasp, a chortle esophageal--a time for bed check-in decision.


V

Bluetooth headphones connected the mic; the call, commanded; the response text
received; an emoji reply to talk later for the reason cited: approval decompression.

Feel free to exercise thought by sending me an email regarding preparation nuances. You may eat easy when you eat ingredients. (Disclaimer)
