I Told You She IS June Cleaver!



My sister...Lorrie. She's going to die a thousand deaths because I named names here. I've mentioned the women of my family a few times in my posts. You'll undoubtedly hear more about them, well, unless you stop reading my blog which I really hope doesn't happen. I love it when you stop by and visit. I get all giddy when you leave comments...after all, my name is Buggys and I am a Comment Whore.
The other day after I wrote about my embarrassing potholders, and yes, she totally washes hers regularly, she was laughing at my lack of kitchen housewifery. I was complaining about scrubbing my bathroom floors on all fours because it kills my old knees. Normally I use my swiffer wet jet because it's quick and easy and I don't like house cleaning that much, but sometimes I feel the need to do a better job. I was feeling pretty smart because I had folded up a beach towel to kneel on but it was a little awkward scooching backwards as I scrubbed.
So Lorrie said to me, "I use sanitary pads".
"Wha.....huh?" says I.
"Sanitary pads, kotex, maxi pads...you know, the sticky ones. Just stick them to your knees and there's your padding. Throw them away when you're done."
I swear I laughed until I cried at the image of Lorrie with a couple of kotex plus stuck on her knees. She refused to pose for a picture. Nevertheless, I'm trying that the next time. She's brilliant.

You ladies crack me up. I don't think I'll run out and buy any Maxi Pads. It would be funny to see someone using them.

I am rolling! This is hilarious!

"....just stick them to your knees and there's your padding...."

Hahahahahahaha!!!

You have got to get a picture of that! Sounds like an awesome Christmas Card to me.... I can't think of a caption right now, but would that not rock?!

Grace said...

Clever - I think. I must tell my husband about that since he washes the floors - of course he would have to go and buy the necessary padding...oh, well he won't mind but I bet he would call me from the store and ask what brand

Your sister is very resourceful. I need padding for outside when I have to get down, but can't see wearing pads on my knees so I bought one of those small cushioned mats for your knees, works great.

Very clever! Sounds like a great idea until the doorbell rings and I'd forget they were on my knees!

ROFL that is so funny. If your sister isn't willing to pose for a picture what about you. When you try it out are you going to take a pic of yourself? Oh I hope so, PLEASE

I want to laugh at her, but the other part of me wants to follow her lead!

I agree...I'm half-laughing/half-curious to give it a try!

Nani said...

I always knew Lorrie was the smart sister!!!!!

That is so brilliant! And hysterical! Hey -- they probably laughed at the guy who thought up the Post-It, too.

Every time I put on a new Swiffer pad, it reminds me of maxis. In fact, the first time I tried to affix one to the mop, I kept pawing at where I thought the pull-off strip should be. There is no strip. Duh.

Irene said...

Now there's a handy tip! LOL!!
