    Just some inconsequential musings for a snowy Friday afternoon:

    In our household, there is one person who cuts a piece of cake or pie, and leaves the used knife in with the rest of the cake/pie. No mater how many times I take it out and out it and put it in the dishwasher, it keeps happening. Yes, that person happens to be my husband, the only male in the house.

    Is this a guy thing? Does anyone else here think it's kind of gross to find a crusty used knife in with the cake?

    He has two choices.

    1. Lick it clean but that would probably gross you out - you might think that is improper, etc.

    2. Leave it in the cake so another knife doesn't get dirty every time someone wants a piece of cake. This way, he eliminates all the knives that have to be cleaned - making things easier for you.

    Yeah, leaving the knife with the cake, that's an optimization thing. Less dishes.

    Can't have both....

    Less dishes

    or

    Crusty cake knife.

    In his mind it's the answer to your "I clean too many dishes" problem.
