No Lack of Subtlety

Diana is home for Thanksgiving break. She informed us her exceedingly slovenly roommate finally washed her sheets for the first time. When Calypso asked what brought that about Diana replied, " I bought a bottle of Febreze and sat it on her bed. I told her I could either make her sheets wet with Febreze or she could make them wet in the washing machine. She opted for the washing machine."

Something about The Apple and the Tree is just giving me the chuckles, right now. . .

Hee heee I am reminded again of those bedroom pictures that were featured on Gmans blog....Diana has come a long way!

Cocotte said...

Well, the Febreeze is not cheap. I can now understand how desperate she must have been!

Good for her; she's growing up.

I am reminded of an incident from my own college days. I once had a housemate who never did any housework. Ever. Naturally, this got on our nerves. Finally, another housemate snapped, took all the dirty dishes from the sink, and put them in her bed.

After a teary-eyed blowout, we discovered that she had led such a life of overprivilege she had only the vaguest idea how to do housework. We had to show her what all the products were for and how you might use them. Yikes.

why desmond, whatever could you mean? :P

susie, she has indeed!

cocotte, remember that post about smells that drive me up a wall? febreze is one of them. to me it's too perfumey-chemical-y. but yeah, i do believe my girl was desperate.

craver, indeed

cricket, i have put dirty dishes in my children's beds when they have not cleaned up after themselves. kind of mind boggling to think someone could be an adult and have no idea how to clean up after themselves. good you all taught her.

I have no clue what febreeze is, but I'm working on some very interesting theories :D

Let's hope her roommate never stops showering...

Diana got the cleverness DNA quite honestly. Bless her. (And good luck to the slovenly roommate. From now on, she's not going to have a chance. And that's a good thing.)

Nicely done.

And one day that girl of yours is going to revamp someone's filing system, even when they protest it's fine.
