The writing is on the wall


Yeah, so, because we’re lazy people, we are hiring someone to come clean our house.

Of course, that means I’m going to doing some cleaning before they get there. I don’t want them to know the truth about us. Do you think it’s OK if I just leave the bathtub the way it is, though?


Most of that scribbling is by the Spawn. He’s really into the ABCs right now, so I wrote it out in the tub for him. Also, I figure it couldn’t hurt to refresh my memory of the ABCs while I shower, because knowledge is power.

But, I’m seriously asking, you guys. Is it cruel to leave the tub like that for the house cleaner? Does that make me an asshole?

I should clean it off, huh? I can just imagine the house cleaners going out to drinks after work and saying, “And then this asshole family let their kid draw all over the shower walls and left it for me to clean it up.”

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. leave it. you are paying her to clean it. years ago, when i was married, we had a house cleaner. i would run around like a crazy person the night before, cleaning up. my hubs forced me to leave it all alone one time, and the gal came in and cleaned. afterward, we couldn’t find anything that had been left out. she just stuffed things in drawers or the hall closet or kitchen cupboards, willy-nilly. it was hilarious and frustrating all at the same time. so, put your personal stuff away, but don’t clean a thing.

  2. I left it, and he cleaned it off. And, of course, that very night I wrote the alphabet out on the wall again. 🙂

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
