I Should Have Listened to my Father


Once upon a time,
a girl got her first college apartment.
She didn't have anything for her kitchen,
so her dad and her went shopping for supplies.
She got a lot of hand-me-down kitchen knives,
but she bought one,
really nice,
Henckel knife. 

"Be careful,"
her father told her.
"This knife is special.
You should take good care of it,
and always be sure to hand wash it."

The girl rolled her eyes.
She was almost in her twenties now.
I real independent woman.
She didn't need advice.
So he put the knife through the dish washer.
Over, and over again.

The knife didn't make it....

And from that day forth,
the girl started to hand wash her knives.
