With apologies to Mummie!
Marash Girl's father was co-owner of Newtonville Electrical Company, Inc. As such, he and his brother always supplied the family with the latest in electrical appliances. Thus, Marash Girl's mom was one of the first folks in the neighborhood to have a dishwasher. But what did fresh young Marash Girl say to her mother when her mother was excited about getting a new dishwasher? "Why would anyone ever want a dishwasher?" Yes, she really asked that question.
Years later, Marash Girl understands and sends her apologies back in time to her wonderful mother, Jennie.
Today, Marash Girl has a friend who still washes dishes by hand. Her friend doesn't realize that the dishwasher SAVES WATER and, in fact, gets dishes cleaner than any hand washing could ever do.
But what about the social aspects? Do any of you remember the chatter enjoyed wiping dishes and putting them away while the "chosen" lady for the day washed the dishes?
