I guess I forgot to mention that I don't use it as a cutting board, but rather as a hot pad for hot dishes on the table. I can't explain all the gunk on it.
1 time I ran a carburetor body through the dishwasher, before installing a rebuild kit -- rebuild kit in the carburetor, I mean, not in the dishwasher.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
The Chief Of Staff was not home at the time.
I didn't tell her about it, either.
I'm not sure, but I think I got away with it.
