Little evil mini-me...


in regards to domestic chores:

Hate is too strong a word, but I was feeling a little pithy today.

Good one....

I thought so, but I also think the little evil mini-me at my age is a bad influence...

I'll give you an "Amen sister" on this one.

Cleaning chores make me feel nothing but despair. They're ultimately a futile effort and will never be anything more than a holding action.

There is no victory against entropy.

"There is no victory against entropy."
This one stumped me... With my understanding, or misunderstanding as the case may be, of the word "entropy", are you suggesting that I SHOULD leave my laundry on the floor? or not?

Big Sister said...

Ne. I think you are entitled to your "little ebel mini-me" moments...Ha, ha...even at your age.

I just don't appreciate when the rest of the team isn't doing their part... That's when it's more like domestic drudgery and an effort in futility...BUT we must prevail!!!

How 'bout some incentive? Homemade cookies? Very excellent just out of the oven - the right texture of chewy, gooey, and crispy...Yummm.

Big Sis:
Sorry I have to disagree. It is ALWAYS domestic drudgery, regardless of it being a team effort or not.

Hello... cookies... you could have just called to tell me that.

What do you know of dust bunnies? Oh... do you mean my dust buddies?

Eloquence in an emoticon.

Big Sister said...

Hmmm. T1G manages "eloquence" and The Old Lady gets "Enough with the freakin' text-based emoticons. Oh so very mature of you."

Yep. I'll just beam those cookies right over...How 'bout some braised & glazed brusselsprouts? Muhahahahaha...

Spockgirl said...

Big Sis:
Excuse me ma'am. The comment about eloquence was a humourous reference which the gentleman (sorry dude) will understand, whereas the comment to you was because you used a text-based emoticon to stick your tongue out at me.

That's me everyday

Ryan... No... I thought you would be the perfect picture of husbandly domestitude. (Did I just create a new word or coin a new phrase?)
