Since you're staying home from camp today, I've left you a few chores to do, should take 15-20 minutes.

Changing Brain: Oh ... what.

Nothing much, unload the dishwasher, load the dirty dishes and then wash whatever doesn't go in the dishwasher.

CB: What do you mean wash.

Ummm...fill the sink with hot water, not so hot you burn yourself, add dish soap...

CB: What do you mean dish soap?

The soap you wash the dishes with.

CB: Yeah, I don't know what that is. Okay, I better let you go because this is going to take a lot longer than 15 minutes.

Oh wait, I also want you to put all your dirty clothes into the baskets in my room, and then carry them down to the basement.

CB: What? Oh....(groan)....okay, I've gotta go.

Changing brain is turning 13 tomorrow - how can he not know what dish soap is?

Funny story too about dish soap.
I was with Shannon at Costco shopping for my usual stuff and for Shannon's little list of stuff for Dad. Shannon asked me where to find dish soap... no worries, easy isle to find. But then she asks me, BTW what is dish soap???.... is it for the dishwasher, washing machine, hand soap at the sink????
Oh, children... of 13 or 21???
They've never had to do dishes without.... the usual stuff.
