Not About Food 3

Now I understand my mother

Growing up in Ohio with many relatives nearby my dear mother had the same disease I have now. OCD. We could have a big fish frry at the house but my mother watched us like a hawk ready to grab any plate that was empty so she could wash it. So many times people were not done eating but she wanted to do it NOW so she wouldn't have a pile of dishes in the sink. and now DAMMIT, I do it also. Hurry up so I can do the dishes.
