DISHES JENGA; THE EVIDENCE.

You may (or may not) remember this post  in which I mentioned Dishes Jenga. Asked by several people as to how exactly it was played, did I for example use a draining board?

Well, I give you ....





... which I'm embarrassed to say have not been staged. As Mr T (Mr T for those of you who asked being Mr Terry, my husband) would testify these are fairly typical examples of a game of Dishes Jenga as played in the Terry household.

Oh, my.... that makes me a little nervous. At least I'm not seeing a lot of glass in those photos. Still, that would make an awful racket if something were to tip the balance.

Tracy Terry said...

Oh dear! The glasses are in fact balanced at the back beneath the pans Kelly, I should have taken the photos from that angle as well.

Sherry Ellis said...

Wow! That's quite a balancing job!

Please note, 'playing' for my part is complaining loudly at the insanity of stacking as she does and playing catch.

Buahaha! That is epic. My dish drainer rack can look like this now and then, but usually not.

Tara Tyler said...

we have been playing that at our new house with a smaller sink... and the crashes are not as fun as the real game!

wanted to say thanks for stopping by Sherry's place for my Windy Hollow release tour!

I appreciated your interest in my books. Let me know if you'd like a copy of one for review, and I'll be happy to get it to you.
thanks again!

I am getting anxious just looking at it. Bwahaha. My son is rather skilled at this.

LOL! I haven't played it only because it would fall for me and the dogs would try to help. LOL I hate rewashing. :) Well played!

Heather said...

I might possibly beat you, though t couldn't get that last pot to balance.

Hi Tracy,

OMG, my OCD has kicked in just looking at those pictures and it is only 5.30am!!

Our games of jenga do happen on a much smaller scale when we are washing up, but that is only because I don't like Mr G. to dry before the dishes have a little chance to drain some of the excess water (all the soap is rinsed off in scalding hot water first), as it soaks the tea towel unnecessarily.

The whole process of washing, drying, putting dishes away, and cleaning the kitchen up only takes about 15-20 minutes each evening and I couldn't possibly go to bed until this process had been dome from beginning to end. Even if I am ever ill (Ha! Ha!), then Mr G. wouldn't dare do things any other way!!

Now you know why I am so proud to have been married for over 40 years - No one else would put up with my funny (strange) ways after all :)

Oh my gosh that is exactly the same as my dish rack. That is hilarious. And I have matching polkadot plates
