Our dishwasher isn’t draining, so I was working on it last night, manual in hand. Adagio and Shale were watching interestedly, as I read aloud from the manual to be careful when cleaning the filter as it may contain bits of glass or bones.
The kids were confused about the bones so I explained that most people eat meat, and the bones might end up in the dishwasher.
They were seriously horrified! Their wrinkled-nosed expressions looked as if they were watching the world’s biggest gross-out!
Their reaction is quite interesting. Bones in the dishwasher does sound rather like an anachronistic horror movie, when you think about it. It makes me sure that someday in the future people will look back on this meat-eating era the way we now look at cannibalism.
