I go to the fridge to look for something to eat.
I find am empty food storage container on the shelf.
I recognize it from the day before when it was filled with delicious over-baked salmon.
So I go to one kid who I guess may be the culprit and I ask:
Why did you leave the empty bowl in the fridge and not clean it out when you were done?
Dad, I didn’t do it.
So, I feel like a jerk and apologize for thinking maybe it was her.
Then I go to the other kid and say:
Did you leave an empty dirty salmon bowl in the fridge?
And she says to me:
So I ask rhetorically thinking there was no acceptable reason:
Why did you do that?
She says sweetly to me:
My sister was sleeping and I didn’t want to wake her by washing out the bowl.
And I knew she meant it.
I wouldn’t have imagined a reason for leaving an empty dirty bowl in the fridge, but it just goes to show not to misjudge people–there is usually a reason for everything. 😉
