I'm on strike!
I'm finished, paid the piper, jogged my last mile, crossed the finish, performed, waxed off, accomplished, nailed the coffin, played out, vidi, and vici! I told my family no more. I was done with doing laundry and that they were not allowed to wear any more clothes! Yep, you heard right! I told them they had to walk around naked from now on because I am sick and tired of always living in the laundry room! I cannot believe how the laundry seems to grow right before my eyes. Just when I think I've made a dent and I can almost see the bottom of the basket, out of no where comes this huge laundry dragon with his fierce red eyes and spitting fire at me!
Claire changes her clothes every time she goes to the bathroom and not because she has an accident! She just gets tired of her outfit. You might think I could just toss it back into the drawer right? Of course not, she has managed to get God knows what on it and into the laundry basket she puts it! I have to say, at least she's got that part down. When James heard me say he had to walk around the house naked he turned absolutely white as a ghost. He looked at Jim and said, "Dad, is she really serious, I can't!" I of course being in my new home, the laundry room, let out a guttural laugh at which point he became even more terrified! I think he was freaked at the thought of seeing his mother naked like the day she was born! But hey, that would scare even a blind person! I am just so tired of being the only one who knows how to do laundry around here! I said hey, "If you want clean clothes you need to figure out how to wash them!
So do you think I was a little harsh or right on the money with this one?
Well, don't tell my family but I guess I will go hang out in my little home today and fight off that mean old dragon!
