    Shortly after graduating from college and getting my own home, I couldn’t wait to show my mom around.

    We toured the rooms and talked about paint selections, furniture and floor coverings. The tour ended in the kitchen where I proudly walked over to the dishwasher.

    “Look at this,” I said, doing my best Vanna White impression as my hands trailed along in front of the dishwasher.
