No, we’re not playing that game where you hang out in a public place and try to guess the condition of the underwear being worn by strangers walking by. (That’s a fun game to play, though.)
The dirty/clean question is what happens when you’re trying to remember what the situation is in your dishwasher right now. Especially if you live with roommates (or even one other person), there’s really no way to remember if the dishes are clean or dirty except to get up and check.
Or, well, maybe there’s one way…
Give yourself a sign!
Even from across the room, you’ll be able to glance over and see if the magnet has a pair of FILTHY dirty legs or a happy clean elephant!
