Marissa has started a new “Towel Service.” Of course, she got this idea from her daddy, who has “Dad’s Cleaning Service.” His service involves docking the kids’ allowance for any of their junk he has to pick up from the floor, the counter…pretty much anywhere that it should not be. So, Marissa came up with the brilliant idea of starting her own service. On her own, she decided to reorganize our towel cabinet and hang out a towel for each family member. The towels, so she tells us, are to last for exactly one week. She will replace them on Sundays. And, to top it all off, she has color-coded the towels, so that she will know if anyone switches out their towel before the appointed time. Should any towel security breaches be discovered by her, she will charge each offender 50¢.
- Used batteries
- Half-empty bottles of perfume (or liquor)
- Boxes of crap from your basement
- Stray packets of allergy meds and aspirin that have been floating around in the medicine drawer for a few years
- Billboard space on your head
- Camping plots in the front yard
I’m wondering if such a place exits, because if it does, that’s where we’re going to be vacationing in just one short week. Yep, in only one week, we will pile into the family van and cram as many of our personal belongings in there with us as we possibly can, and we’ll begin the trek across the country to the happiest place on earth.
