Where's the Broom?
For those of you old enough, do you remember Wendy's advertising slogan "Where's the Beef?" We don't actually remember it ourselves, but Mommy has talked about it when teaching advertising techniques. We feel like adjusting it a bit and going around the house asking, "Where's the Broom?"
Since we've lived in this new house, the broom has almost completely disappeared. The Swiffer only makes a weekly appearance. What's going on here? In our previous house, the broom or Swiffer made almost daily visits to our kitchen. Mommy had a love/hate relationship with those two devices. She loved the results; she HATED how often they came calling on her.
Here's a reminder of what the previous kitchen floor looked like on moving day:
From far away, the floor looks pretty good. It's blue and white, one of Mommy's favorite color combos. But it's only from far away that this floor looked good. If you were to see it on a daily basis, you would know why Mommy hated it! She asked herself a million times while living in this house who in their right mind would put WHITE tile in the kitchen! Daddy started asking who in their right mind would have two black labs in a kitchen with white tile, but that's another story.
One of the best things about the new house in Mommy's opinion is the tile in the kitchen. I think Mommy's IN LOVE! This tile has to be the best invention known to man or dawg. It shows NOTHING!!!!! Well, it might show a few tiny water spots from a certain unnamed dawg's drool, but only in the right light.
Every tiny little bitty dawg hair is able to hide out until it decides to form a tumbleweed. That is the only time Mommy notices anything on the floor. When she sees a tumbleweed that has formed, she simply reaches down and picks it up. She does not go looking for the broom or the Swiffer.
The poor broom is basically only used and abused for outdoor chores now (and boy, do we have some serious dust and dirt out there!). The Swiffer is only invited into the kitchen once a week when Mommy does her regularly scheduled cleaning.
I personally have the feeling the Swiffer should invite himself in at least twice a week, but Mommy is living by the philosophy of "Ignorance is bliss!"
Whatever makes Mommy happy,
PS: Happy Birthday tomorrow to Grandaddy! We hope you have a great day!
PPS: The broom did make an appearance Monday on Halloween . . . after all, Mommy has to get around somehow!
