Messy Home?

October 9, 2011
Neighbourhood kids often look around around our happy home, and declare: 'It's só messy in here! Our house looks much better.'

This observation baffles me, because I think our house looks quite well, thank you! But, seven people live in it, and perhaps that explains their cruel judgment. Besides, I suspect their parents of Minimalism!

Yesterday the boy next door had a new point of critique: 'Your front door is always open! Burglars can walk right in!'
'Well,' I struck back, 'that's because you never close the front door behind you!'

That one he had to think about. After a few minutes of solemn silence he told me in hopeful tones: 'Perhaps burglars will steal all your stuff, and then your house won't be messy anymore!'

  5. Ha! I love it. And really, this is a good cleaning tip too. Next time the house is a mess, I'm just going to leave the door open. Do you think the burglars will vacuum and dust after they steal our stuff? :)
