original_post:_1/31/2001________ I kind of liked the idea of Alli and Max doing something casual and domesticated on their first real "date." Washing dishes is a chore. Not really many people like it, and it's only fun if you are doing it on a date. After living together it's like pulling teeth trying to get your roommate/housemate/spouse/family member to do the dishes. For some reason I like doing the dishes. It's kinda zen for me. Laundry on the other hand, HELL no.
