Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

3:47 pm
Post Meta :

I left the following comment on Metalmom‘s blog post, and she said I should post it. Since I did spend a little effort on it (it was one of the things I did on my 2nd day of RIDING THE BUS TO WORK), I figured I could lean on it a bit.

Metalmom’s post was about how someone needed to call 9-1-1 because she did all this cleaning in her house and she actually LIKED IT.   Therefore, something must be wrong with her.

I vacuumed today, but it sucked.

I tried picking up hair with Pledge and a rag, but all I got were dust bunnies.

I used kleenex to clean my TV while watching the Hawaiian Surf Trials, but it wiped me out.

I tried laundering money for the local mob, but the IRS cleaned me out.

A woman came into the kitchen with a broom, and the damn witch swept me off my feet.

Your job? Come up with some more and leave it in a comment!

And lo, the people did comment thus:

    I tried to remove some lint, but I kept getting the brush off.
    I thought of cleaning the bathtub, but I scrubbed that idea.

    You got all the good ones!

    metalmoms last blog post..Call 9-1-1!!!

  2. Evil Genius says:

    I used wax on my floors while I polished off the last bottle of rum.

    I was going to call for help but got dimed out before I could get to the phone.

    Okay, I suck at this. 🙂

  3. Dragon says:

    I cleaned the kitchen floor by wiping the slate clean. 🙂

  4. Tug says:

    This one I’m stealing, but don’t remember where from: I clean house by sweeping it with a glance.

    I suck at this stuff, too. Ask MetalMom, she’ll tell you I’m the one you channel so as NOT to clean. 😉

  5. whall says:

    metalmom, those are awesome!

    Evil Genius, the trick is to always have enough Rum around – and clever use! I’m going to have to lookup what “dimed out” means, though.

    Dragon, oooh! you have slate floors? how cool!

    Tug, hey, that’s how I clean too!

    I’m inspired by both of you to add another:

    If you brush me off, I’ll clean your clock and sweep the leg

  6. dmarks says:

    I tried turned on the computer, but then I got booted.

  7. Robin says:

    I’m so not good at these things so I’m just going to tell you that you amused me today.

  8. whall says:

    dmarks, ooh, nice!

    Robin, that’s ok. This is both a participant and a spectator sport.

  9. Winter says:

    Mine is job specific. (I work at the cemetery.)

    I tried to go home at 5, but I was buried in paperwork.

    Winters last blog post..Is Annoyed a Color?

  10. metalmom says:

    Check your email! 9-1-1

  11. whall says:

    Winter, and were you coffin all night? Or, “I tried to go home at the end of my graveyard shift, but I was buried in paperwork”

    metalmom, got it and it’s being worked on. In fact, I’m about to blog about it.

  12. marilyn says:

    I scoured the toilet and now I’m all flushed.

    marilyns last blog post..Yes, but do you ever think about MY needs?

  13. Evil Genius says:

    Whall, maybe I only know this because of many, many years spent working in the law enforcement field, but here ya go:

    DIME OUT: [fr. longtime cost of pay-telephone (booth) call, usually anonymous] 1. to inform on, tell on, expose “My sister DIMED me OUT for drinking from the carton” – syn. DROP A DIME, SQUEAL, BLOW THE WHISTLE, TATTLE

    Evil Geniuss last blog post..Lick My Lolly!

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.


PLEASE help keep this blog family-friendly by refraining from profanity and vulgarity.
