Mr Frog, he didn't listen to my polite request.
He instead has given me the GREATEST incentive to wash my dishes before leaving the house no matter what. This could be seen as a good sign, because I have no other incentive and am lazy.
Tonight I come home and he is enjoying a relaxing chill out in the dirty, chocolate icecream water in my bowl. That's so gross!! I'm disinfecting that bowl in the morning.
