WOOTERISM DEFINITION

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Please allow me to introduce you to a word I have invented:

wooterism (noun) – something interesting, unusual, or amusing done by Willy Dunne Wooters.

Remember Willy Dunne Wooters?


What a sweetie pie.

Willy Dunne Wooters visits me and sometimes we go out on a nice date. Once we went shopping. I don't care for shopping, but shopping with WDW was fun.

Willy Dunne Wooters does not live with me. Willy Dunne Wooters has an apartment in a nice gated community in another part of our fair city of Jacksonville.

I visited his apartment once. I will not go back.

Willy Dunne Wooters has lived in the apartment for eight years. He has never cleaned the bathroom. Not once. That frightens me. I don't want to get caught at his apartment with a desperate can't wait another minute need to pee. He also had a kitchen sink full of dirty dishes soaking in water. About two weeks later he told me he needed to go home. He asked, Remember those dishes in the sink? They're still there. I need to take care of them.

So I think you understand my reluctance to visit Mr. Wooters. My house is considerably more hygienic.

However, when I was in Willy Dunne Wooters' kitchen, I noticed he had a dishwasher. I inquired: Why don't you use the dishwasher?

I just don't, he replied (he's not always a scintillating conversationalist).

Recently, though, WDW told me he has started to use his dishwasher, but not to wash the dishes. Instead, he stores the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and then takes them out and washes them by hand in the sink.

I had to ask. I just had to ask: Why don't you leave the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, add some detergent, and run the dishwasher?

I wash dishes by hand, Willy Dunne Wooters replied. I don't use the dishwasher – except to store the dirty dishes.

That was the only explanation I could get out of Willy Dunne Wooters.

Hence, Ladies and Gentlemen, this anecdote is an example of a wooterism.

I feel quite certain we can look forward to more wooterisms.



I don't understand the refusal to use the dishwasher, but how can I not love a man who loves dogs? And who claims to love me?


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. Hi Janey .. Wooterism is a good word .. though dirty dishes in the cupboards don't thrill me that much .. and I wouldn't visit him either - way too much cleaning up to do ..

    Cheers Hilary

    1. He doesn't dare make a mess when he's in my house. I trained him well.

  2. I love WDW and his wooterisms already, too. Philly Done Hooters washes the dishes BEFORE putting them in the dishwasher. Then runs the dishwasher. I don't get that. If you've already washed them, why not just put them away? I'm afraid of dirty bathrooms.

    1. I avoid bathrooms, except for the two in my house. I've known other people who wash the dishes before running them through the dishwasher. I don't get it. I suppose we can call it a hooterism.

  3. Wooterism needs a DOODLE effect ~~~ long slurping lick to suggest that it belongs to me and life can go forward. WDW needs a DOODLEWOOTWOOT and life will be fine!

  4. If I knew the answer to that, then I'd know why WDW stores his dirty dishes in the dishwasher, because I would know EVERYTHING!

    1. Not using the dishwasher is incomprehensible to me.

    1. I imagine this is the comment you left. I have on comment moderation so comments don't appear until I decide to wake up and approve them. I hope you can find a way to use wooterism. I believe it to be an excellent word.

  8. Maybe he stores them in there because once you close the door it eliminates the smell. Course, throwing in some detergent and pressing a button would eliminate the smell too...

    Maybe he's a trend starter. My Dad says that many of the kitchen remodels they are doing now have 2 dishwashers, one for clean and one for dirty. You never have to put the dishes away!! Just use the clean ones until they are all dirty, then run the dirty dishes clean.

    See... he's secretly a trend starter... or half a trend starter. :)

    1. Two dishwashers? That's fascinating. I guess Willy Dunne Wooters is a trend starter in his own cute way.

    1. He's a keeper, even when he yells at his football team's coach on the TV. Does he really think that man can hear him? My neighborhood certainly can!

  11. Ok I am with you why would someone use a dishwasher to store dirty dishes but not wash them in it is beyond me and not cleaning the bathroom well that is just yuck. Men and my daughter Jes are disgusting.............at times.............ok not all men, Tim likes a clean bathroom/toilet............but he is a nice good looking fella

    1. At least Willy Dunne Wooters respects my clean house and is never messy when he visits.

  12. Not using the dishwasher is incomprehensible to me, also. However, exbf who comes here to help me has not run the dishwasher in about 20+ years. He would never spend the money to use it--water and electric. He rarely washed the dishcloth or the plastic tub he uses to wash them. If I give him something with food in it, I have to rewash the dish! There is never stuck-on food, but the dish is sort of greasy, not clean looking. Then, he smokes so the dish smells like cigarette smoke. His sink is sort of gross and the plastic dishpan.

    When I explained that his dishwasher was ruined from lack of use, he looked stricken. After a while of disuse, dishwashers leak.

    I have not been in his house for four years. Once he dumped me as gf, I never went there!

    1. That's nasty. Willy Dunne Wooters is clean personally. He always smells so good. He doesn't have a lot of clutter around. I don't understand not cleaning the bathroom or using a dishwasher. After eight years, his dishwasher probably wouldn't work, either.

      Delete
  13. Well, huh. That's an interesting way of going about things! I think I might not only hesitate to pee at his house, but eating anything on any sort of dish might be out, too.

    But as long as he treats you well, that's what matters, right?

    1. He doesn't keep food around anyway. He eats take out or he takes me out. I don't care how he keeps his apartment as long as he participates in keeping my house clean. He's already discovered the drawer of spices in alphabetical order. He knows what goes on here.

  14. Hey! I scrub down and rinse everything before it goes in the dishwasher. I get enough laughter and eye rolling from Dagan and Leah. LOL! ;)

    1. I know a lot of people who wash the dishes before they do in the dishwasher, but WDW is the only person I know who stores the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and then washes them by hand.
