So I opened my dishwasher this morning to load our breakfast dishes, and what did I find?
A whole passel of ants crawling around in the bottom of my dishwasher. Oh. Gross. I’m not really one to be scared or grossed out by bugs and other creepy crawlies… unless they come in large quantities. You know. Swarms. Hoards. Masses. Legions. All moving around and crawling on top of each other. That kind of stuff. Oh. Gross.
I may be over-exaggerating a bit. They’re only ants. And there were probably only a hundred or so. Maybe Two. But they WERE crawling around in the appliance I use to keep the stuff we EAT off of CLEAN. So right now I’m just trying really hard not to ask uncomfortable questions like:
How did they get in there?
How long have they been there?
How bad is it that I am so lazy with rinsing my dishes they they swarmed to eat the food in the bottom of my dishwasher?
And most importantly… is it gross that I just started the dishwasher hoping they’ll be gone the next time I open it?
I really hope I don’t have a bunch of dead ants stuck to my dishes after this is all said and done. Oh. Gross.
