Osmosis

I think that I just might have a problem. You see I like to buy things. But that seems pretty normal right? Sure. I like to buy cleaning products. That definitely seems normal. Most people like their house clean.

But once I purchase these cleaning products I was so overjoyed to buy, I don’t touch them for at least a week (or more).  

Take for example my Target run the other day, along with the As Seen On TV products, I actually was searching for one of these….

 Swiffer Sweep Vaccum Cleaner Kit - 2 Units

But I got stopped by the shiny pink item….

Swiffer 3 in 1 Sweeping Starter Kit +Duster +refills,Limited Pink Breast Cancer

I didn’t need it.  I shouldn’t have even seen it.  But it was PINK.  And it promised to rid my house of the many fur balls dancing in the wind throughout my kitchen. 

So of course I bought it and all of its sweet citrus smelling paraphernalia.  Devine.

Now several days have passed and I did not get what I want, haven’t opened my pink device and the dust balls still swirl among my feet.

And I came to realize something.

I just want my house to clean itself by osmosis.  I bring home the duster, the mop, the sweeper and the Clorox wipes, and darn it I expect things to be clean!  Not by personally dusting, mopping, sweeping or wiping mind you.  I just expect to bring these things home and they will magically do as they promised on the package and *poof* my house will become a warm, cozy and clean home. 

Then another thought occurred to me.  All these products promise to make your house as shiny as a brand new car for that spoiled rotten teenager.  But it never says that you have to actually work in order for this to happen.

I’m suing for false advertisement.

  1. No wonder! I thought you just had to show the dust mites the cool box and they'd scatter in fear.

    Unrelated: congrats on the new blog, the baby and wow on your Glee audition, which totally ROCKED.
