A Conversation

Me: “I wonder how much it would cost to have someone come over for a couple of hours every morning to clean the kitchen?”

Husband: “Honey, that’s ridiculous you can’t do that.”

Me: “Sure I can.”

Husband: “But then they would see how messy your kitchen is and you would hate that. They might tell other people.” He’s starting to sound desperate at this point.

Me: “Apparently, I’m such a good house faker that it doesn’t matter! Even when I emailed _____ those picture of our messy house, he thought I had made the mess purposely for the pictures!”

Husband: “Please stop the crazy talk.”

Me: “You’re about 65% scared right now that I might do this, aren’t you?”

Husband: “The percentage that I’m scared right now is a bit higher than that. Try 90 – 95%.”

I am now laughing at him. A lot.

Me: “Don’t you just love having me around? I know all of my great ideas really keep you on your toes.”

Husband: “I do love to have you around, but your great ideas are not really the reason.”

Me: “Come on, you know you love the daily sock hunt!”

Think heavy sarcasm now.

Husband: “Oh yeah, I Iive for the sock hunt. Why don’t you hire someone to come in and find and fold all of my socks?”

Me: “Very funny. I’m not done with my kitchen cleaner idea. Sweet dreams!”

Why do I hate cleaning my kitchen so much? It seems to me to be an abnormal amount of hatred. And I think is really the root of my dislike of cooking. I’m sorry again to my college roommates for my kitchen cleaning avoidance. Thanks for still speaking to me!

  1. I’d rather not be reminded of those days! At least the cleanliness of our apt:) Thankfully, I have a husband who will clean if I don’t.

    Ha! When I think of cleaning our apt., I immediately think of Dave doing it! Oh, and Clorox Clean-Up. On the front of my navy blue American Eagle sweater.
