First, the knives.. I was getting a knife to cut the carrots with, and pulled two out of the dishwasher, and I'm looking at the knife block trying to figure out where they go. There's a knife in the slot the big one should go in. I examine them. They're different designs. Check the names. One is Ikea, the other is Sabatier. Only Sab's go in this knife block, Ikeas go in the other. So I put the sab knife away and then try to figure out why there isn't room for the other knife. After a couple seconds it clicks, wrong knife block.
