How do you know when it's seriously time to do the dishes? Maybe when you're eating your cereal out of a small casserole dish because you used the last clean tupperware bowl yesterday...
How can you be sure that you put the dishes off too long this time? Well... it's been too long if you have to pry a bowl off of your counter top using both hands.
But not me. I did not loose control of my house last week.
