The Painted Ladies are coming to my house today to paint. In preparation for them, I vacuumed the carpet and mopped the tile and did other major cleaning projects. My swifter mop batteries were dead - so I improvised and poured out some other floor cleaner as I mopped. It was a mistake. It left the floor slightly greasy feeling - not to mention everything stuck to it and left tracks. I text (texted?) Jesse to bring me batteries from town, but she did not (kind of an Emma story). This morning I am planning on robbing some batteries from other battery operated appliances and trying the mop again. I will have to vacuum again thanks to my dog who brought his dog food into the living room to eat on the carpet. Why did I bother cleaning yesterday? And why didn't the cleaning fairy come last night? And why the heck do they put batteries in a mop?
While driving to town yesterday, I called Toby to discuss where to meet for lunch. Toby said something, but I totally missed it. I explained, "Sorry dear, but I was distracted. You know that tower they are building out here? Well, there was a construction worker without a shirt. And he had a dark tan and was wearing tan pants, which made it look like he was naked. So I had to look again." Toby said, "You were looking at a naked guy?" Me, "Well yeah! Naked guy in a hard hat! Who wouldn’t look? Now what were you saying?" Truly it was not lust, but simple curiosity.
