A Domestic Goddess I Ain't

There is nothing like a good root canal to start your day off nicely. If you weren’t awake before, that first needle to your gum will sure wake you up. The electric chair was actually invented by a dentist. For some reason, that doesn’t surprise me at all.

My mom once told me I was going to make someone a very good wife one day. I think she lied. I’m not his wife yet, but I am his girlfriend and I am definitely not good. M has been gone since Sunday morning and the apartment is a wreck. A mountain of dishes, the bathroom full of laundry, dust everywhere and the plants that were green on Sunday are looking more brown and yellow than green. I have until tonight to clean the entire apartment and buy new plants water the plants, because that’s when M’s plane is due to land. Wish me luck.

By the way, did you know that ancient Egyptian priests would pluck every single hair from their body? That seems a little strange. And time consuming. I might take it up as a hobby just to get out of cleaning the apartment. *


  1. I'd much rather pluck out all my hairs than clean my house. Or get a root canal, which is an experience I've managed to avoid so far. Sorry about your experience.

  2. Mike - I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one who hates cleaning with a vengeance. Yuck. I almost prefer the root canal.
