i forgot to mention...

i wonder how long these dishes have been in the drying wrack, she thought ruefully to herself as she began to put them away. she opened the cup cupboard just above the drying wrack to put a glass away, and out jumped the owl mug like it had been sitting there waiting for its chance to spring.  it fell like a rock, hitting the purple and blue flowered bowls, 2 of the last 3 survivors of the set fatima had given her many years before.  and just like that--suicide bomber.  the bowls were broken and the mug lost most of her handle.  i'm keeping you just like that, as your punishment, she said to the mug and put her back in the cupboard, who knows--to live another day and plan more ambushes.  doing the dishes is dangerous work.
