Doing-in the Dishes

It’s time for Friday Fictioneers! This week’s the prompt is the image below. I used exactly 100 words.

Halfway into the kitchen, Melanie stopped short as if she’d hit a wall.

Good Gawd!” Overcome by the rancid stench, she covered her nose and mouth and backtracked into her bedroom. “This has gotta stop!”

Melanie rifled through her dresser drawers until she found a surgical mask. “Gotta remember to get paper plates … getting too expensive…” she muttered.

Melanie donned the mask and grabbed a pair of Playtex gloves from the bathroom. 

Trying to hold her breath, she quickly tossed the molding, food encrusted dishes into a box and hauled them to the dumpster as was her monthly practice.
