A Narrow Escape

March 7, 2014

There’s something primal about the urge to spring clean. Even people who don’t like cleaning find that they can’t help themselves.

This afternoon I was sweeping the floor, and decided to pull out the fridge and sweep behind it. Then I saw that the grille over the coils was dirty, and I swept that. Then I considered removing the grille to really get at the coils. And then I realized that that was probably the first step down that slippery slope.

Fortunately, the kid next door came over to see if I could play basketball; so I was saved from staying inside and squandering a perfectly good spring afternoon.
