"Do you know, " she said to Mrs Williams one day, "I've got a new
dishwasher. It washes the plates and glasses and knives and forks beautifully. "
"Oh?" Mrs Williams answered. "And does it dry them and put them in the cupboard too?"
Mrs Briggs was surprised. "Well," she answered, "the things in the machine are dry after an hour,but it doesn't put them away,of course. "
