I read an ABC's of Us post over at According to Gus this morning and got inspired to whip up a quick one for Us.

C. Chore You Really Dislike: Me: Doing the dishes. We don’t have a dishwasher; Andy does all the dishes, that’s how much I hate that chore; Andy: Walking Winnie Cooper. She’s a bit temperamental with anyone but me…
