There are only two sorts of people: those who put the cutlery blade-down into the dishwasher and those who don’t.
My research has generally shown me that those who put the cutlery blade-down are more in touch with their feelings.
They know that when you take the cutlery out of the dishwasher again you take it by the handle, not the blade. This is clearly more thoughtful and hygienic. They are therefore clearly more likely to be sentimental.
I gave birth to those three marginally gratuitous paragraphs in order to discuss what can be a touchy subject: feelings and how we express them through symbols and events.
