I can see it now... Here's the scenario: I'm cleaning house in the summer.
I have beer in my hair (#1) and I have coated my face with Elmer's glue, which is drying (#6). I have WD 40 sprayed on my joints (#11), and Preparation H under my eyes (#14). I have green Kool Aid soaking in the
toilet (#20). My glasses are coated with toothpaste (#34)... I have Pampers upside down several places on the carpet (#36)... and two pans soaking and fizzing in the kitchen sink (#39). Since it's summer in Alabama , it's HOT, so I have a Maxi-Pad for a sweat band under my hat (#46). In addition, I have a Maxi-Pad on each palm (#35) as I wash the windows and floors, with Maxi-Pads for knee cushions.
There's a knock on the door.... It's probably Martha Stewart.
