Radio Question of the Day:
A recent poll asked: During my Spring-cleaning, I'd like to throw out all of my significant other's _____...what was the most popular answer?
I'm busy with Spring-cleaning. Yuck. Housework is like stringing beads…without putting a knot at the end of the string. Everything you do just has to be done again. And again. And again. Like beads dropping off onto the floor.
Where does dust come from anyway? Turns out that dust is made up of all kinds of stuff. Some of it comes from you, some comes from the ocean, and some even comes from space! Anything that is dry and light enough to be blown around and carried by a light breeze can be called dust. The grossest stuff that is a part of dust (it seems to me) is tiny insect bodies, but dust is also soil, pollen, and dead skin cells from people and animals. Dust is other disgusting junk that I don't want to think about. Don't get me started on dust mites. Shiver. They show those on television sometimes. Gross. I asked you nicely not to get me started on them! You guys.
So a lot of what is dust and mess in general is of course, caused by people. There might be one-too-many people livin' in this house. Problem is, which one?
My answer to the question of the day would be books and magazines and pamphlets and just paper stuff in general. But the most popular answer was clothes. My husband's belly grows at a rate that prevents most of his stuff getting that old these years. He used to keep clothing forever, but it's not a big problem these days. His memory is a big help too. That Niks. He doesn't have much memory left. If I don't like something, I disappear it. He forgets he had it. Works like a dream for clothes. Not so much for books. *sigh*
Got get back to work here.
