Completely Awesome Thing That Happened Today #8734

The dishwasher broke.  In a house we're trying to sell.  It is now the world's biggest Murphy bed of a drying rack.  It overheard us speaking about leaving it, and instead it has left us.

I must admit that I'm not really sure how to proceed here.  My father worked in the appliance parts industry, so my mother never had so much as a blender down overnight, let alone the driving force of culinary sanitation.  I didn't have a dishwasher when I lived on the Cape and in Cocoa Beach, but then again, I owned precisely one pot and a collection of four picnicware forks purchased at Le Mart de Wal.  I've had a couple bridal showers since then.

on the upside:  heh.  rack at:  mbe@drinktothelasses.com

I'm also of the belief that appliances & other objects overhear our conversations. Specially cars :(

One of my brothers bought his house despite the broken dishwasher, so maybe it's not a sale-breaker?

Does this mean we are moving to KY?

My friend bought a house and is selling the new appliances the former owners put in b/c they aren't the right color. I think in your area of VA real estate is in such high demand it won't be a big deal.

Good luck.

My question, too.
