My husband is a part-time dishwasher and one of the greatest thinkers i know. I'm not sure if there's any coincidence. But speaking for myself, doing the dishes, as well as taking a shower, is the very best moment to dwell on deep and healthy thoughts. Ideas simply come to my mind like the water is coming out of the tap. Then everything is clean and refreshed.
