Paying it foward.

Maybe this sticky, sweet, syrup of Pleasantville niceness Kool-Aid is seeping into my brain. Or maybe I'm just in a good mood because our neighbor just mowed our lawn, for no reason. I'm feeling like I should pay it forward. Since I'm already planning a special treat to pay them back, I'll just share a helpful hint with you. I'm gonna help you de-clutter, thus reducing stress. To achieve the desired result it is imperative that you follow all the directions closely.

  • Gather up anything you know you don't want to keep, but is too nice to give away. Say like, ugly wedding gifts, a mis-matched set of glassware you just had to have- stuff like that.
  • Put it in a box.
  • Drive ten miles over the speed limit along the windy road to my house.

And walah! You will have no choice but to throw the whole thing away. Now, don't we all feel better? Not that I have a box like that in the back of my car right now or anything.

Oooh, and another thing. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers really are magic.

Gotta love neighbors like that! And one tip about the Magic Erasers - keep them AWAY from the little ones. And away from your skin. They claim to no longer have acid in them, but they're still abrasive, and will scrape the heck out of your skin! (and for some reason the littles like to rub them on the faces. . .)

So um...one has to wonder if among those "ugly wedding gifts" was the goddess of fertility?

Mayor of CrazyTown said...

Oh, gosh no! The goddess is safely tucked away in the back of the closet where she has lived for six years. In my will I'll leave her to you.

Crazy Me... said...

Which begs another question...goddess of fertility or ancient contraceptive?

Mayor of CrazyTown said...

oooh, I'd never thought of that! Let's strap her to a bottle rocket!

Goose said...

You could send her here for the next couple of years and we will send it back when her magical powers are no longer needed :)
