I apologize if the title is misleading and you were expecting a more important topic. This title could have been an in depth look at first times for things that happen in the show or something.
I admit I’m getting a little silly now, but I have a question to ask. Do you clean as you go when you’re cooking or wait until you’re finished and clean everything then?
There was this great bit in “All in the Family” years ago when Archie was watching Michael put on his socks and shoes. Michael put on his left sock, then his left shoe, and Archie was appalled. Archie tells Michael you should put on both socks, then both shoes. What if there’s a fire? Michael responds that at least he’d have on one shoe. I almost always think of that when I’m putting on my running shoes: sock and a shoe, or sock and a sock?
In S6 on DM when Louisa is cooking, Martin comes in and wants to find things to do. He starts cleaning the cutting board and she tells him she still plans to use it. He says she should clean as she goes and gets an “Oh Really” answer from her. She wants him to stay out of her way and tells him to feed the baby.
So now I’m always thinking about how I clean as I go when I cook. It’s so funny how something minor like that can stand out and sometimes cause conflicts!
