Chores can be bores

January 17, 2013

“Chores can
be bores,”
said the hedgehog.
“Doesn’t matter if
they’re in- or
out-of-doors.
There’s the
raking of leaves,
the mowing of lawns,
vacuuming of rugs,
shoveling of snow,
washing of dishes,
bringing out of trash,
cleaning of yucky gutters.

But what if we didn’t
do all these things?
Would the grass grow so tall,
that tigers roamed in it?
Would the trash get so smelly
that we’d rush outside,
only to get eaten by the tigers?
Would dust bunnies
evolve into monsters?
Would the dishes would
grow moldy, and create dessert
for the dust monsters
to enjoy after they’ve eaten you?
Would the gutters get
so heavy with rainwater,
they plummet to the ground?
Would the leaves and snow
grow in piles so high,
they covered our house?”

Looking impressed,
the wolverine nodded.
“Good point.
Now that we’re
all done our chores,
let’s go get some nachos.”

    Seems like all of that can be solved if you have a house that recycles everything, and you can cutback on the effort, although dust bunnies are just downright unyielding, maybe we should live with cascading waters as our walls, maybe that would do the trick. Or better yet live in the forest, I’m in. Only if there’s wifi.

      I like those imaginative ideas! How cool would it be to have a house that recycles everything, possibly turning house trash into energy and yard waste into compost.

    As always…such creative lines…and don’t forget that if you don’t remove your snow…the Abominable Snowman will take up residence in your yard which makes taking the trash out very hard. šŸ™‚

      Yikes, that’s a good one. Got to watch out for that Abominable Snowman!
