Please don't try to load my dishwasher. What will happen is I will hover over you, rub my hands together, turn my feet in and bite my tongue. After you're done, I will wait 43 seconds before I do it again, the way I like to have it done.
Dear children: YES. You have to do the dishes AND clean your rooms today. I am about to take you and your friends to the "Fun park". Do you know how much your average adult likes going to the "Fun Park"? About as much as getting a yeast infection with a chaser of hemorrhoids.
You and I may have different ideas about what exactly “bite the bullet” means in the context of house cleaning. To you, it might mean setting aside an entire day to clean the hell out of your house: scraping dried pancake batter from the ceiling, vacuuming up cat toys, and shoveling out the dust from behind the sofa. To me, “bite the bullet” means finally just bending down and picking up that piece of green pepper on the floor instead of kicking it out of my way 100 times a day.
My husband cleaned the bathrooms, God bless him, but broke the toilet seat off one of the toilets. How is this possible? Broke an entire toilet seat off its hinges? Men, if you're going to help clean the house, don't do it in the manner you would, say, play football. Cleaning a toilet needn't be a race nor a destructive act. It just needs to be wiped down — gently.
Cleaning is the primary way I deal with stress, and if you go back and look at the last four years of my life and make a graph of my stress, you can pretty much assume that at any given moment in those four years you could have run your tongue along the floor from the living room through the kitchen into the bedroom and it would have tasted like rainbows.
