If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em

Who killed the dust bunny?  Not me. That's for sure.

As I was stabbing around with my broom in corners today, wondering why someone as glam as I should be sweeping, the hatred for dust bunnies was multipling (ironic, huh?)

They glide around like a third Wright brother in all their glory - teasing and tormenting.  Then they turn the tables and get groodie, sticking to the broom and I have to use my fingers.

I'm stabbing and stabbing, lamenting loudly, "What did I ever do to you?"  A contradiction, I know.  But it doesn't matter - 'cause they won't "die for Pete's sake."  Who is Pete, anyway?

You can't drown 'em - they get really nasty then - snarling teeth, spitting furballs, growing.

You can't kill 'em, I've proved that, and you can't eat 'em.  So . . .

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

From this moment on I will gently remove the ones in plain sight while cooing, "Heeeeere Bunny, here Bunny," and I'll give the hidden ones their privacy to pro-create.

Mind you, this is all for the sake of my sanity - don't judge me lest you be judged.

What did they ever do to me, anyway? A little embarrassment here and there, a little coughing, sneezing, hacking.  A little trouble breathing.  I can live with that.

So, if 'ya come a Sunday visitin', be sure to wear a hat.  The little devils babies - sanity, sanity - like the merry-go-round that hangs from my ceiling and it's getting a little crowded up there. They might sacrifice one another now and then.  Don't fret, though, 'cause they can't die.

Clean the ceiling fan?  Heavens, no.  It's not in plain sight.  Just don't look up.

Chris from the Stewart Six speaks Maxster.  To infinity and beyond.  It probably didn't hurt that he is his uncle and an overgrown boy.

Y'all come back next week for What a Word? Wednesday.  'Ya hear?

I will join you in my "ignoring" dust bunnies! Can spider webs join that too? The ceiling fan only gets dusted when the dust is flying off the fan while its on!
