The Husband and I had an argument this morning. He does not like that I put the bowls away on the shelf without putting them in order of size and pattern. He thinks the blue bowls should be together, the big bowls should be together and the plastic bowls should be together. The earthenware bowls should be together and the soup bowls should be together and the antique bowls should be together and the cereal bowls should be together. Oh, and mixing bowls should be with mixing bowls.
I, on the other hand, think that we obviously have too many bowls.
Life is too bloody short to sort out bowls. As long as they make it to the bowl shelf, does it really matter whether they mingle with other types of bowl? Does it matter whether a cereal bowl sits on top of an antique bowl? Whether a plastic bowl nestles inside a blue bowl? Whether a mixing bowl holds a soup bowl? I think not.
But it matters to The Husband and therefore I will leave the bowl-putting-away to the expert, while I do other things - like put the loo seat down, replace the lid on the toothpaste and pick up the bath mat...
