Dirty Dishes Pile Up In Steve's Kitchen
October 17, 2001
MANITOU SPRINGS, CO -- The kitchen sink and surrounding counter inside the home of
Steve Garufi is completely full with dirty dishes and
has been unattended for cleaning in nearly three weeks
- an unprecedented period for the Manitou Springs resident.
Today, the sink has numerous dirty dishes,
bowls, a cooking pot with "bad macaroni," a
plastic container with leftover stuffing and numerous
other items. Even the surrounding counter is
cluttered with glasses, bowls and a colander.
"There's something about doing the dishes. I keep
everywhere else in my apartment really clean. I guess
I just don't like cleaning them after I eat, and then
they start pilling up." explained Steve.
"Garufi, you're a pig. If you have dishes in your sink
that are two weeks old, that's the only thing that fits.
You're a pig!" said Vern Peterson of Colorado Springs.
Almost all would agree Steve has greatly improved in his
domestic endeavors, particulary his interior decoration,
choices in artwork and keeping most of his
apartment clean. His kitchen, however, leaves something
greatly to be desired.
Visitors stand a large probability they will view the
unsightly pile of dishes, utencils, cookware and cups,
should they enter the kitchen.
If Steve decided to consistently maintain a clean kitchen
sink, the room has the potential to be the nicest room in
his apartment. Covered with beautiful hardwood floors,
Steve painted the walls Navajo White, a creamy white color,
to brighten the room that already enjoys a generous quantity
of sunlight from two large windows.
"The sunlight in there is great. I just need to get over
this psychological block I have with the dishes. I just
need to go in there and do it." said Steve.
Rain Thrower, Steve's
former hair consultant, is planning
a spontaneous visit this week to Steve's home, and the Internet
personality is paranoid her good friend will see the mess in the kitchen.
The news of Steve's unwillingness to wash his
dishes is seen as a major public relations blunder for his hypocrisy. Last week, Steve
declared "victory over procrastination," when he sent all of
his Christmas cards out 73 days before Christmas Day.
