It’s been a long day. I’ve been puked on, pooped on, yelled at, and then I stepped on a piece of cold, slimy, banana in my bare feet.
Which reminded me, either our carpet was made out of crushed Froot Loops, or I needed to clean.
I vacuumed, but then my children ate more Froot Loops. I pretended not to see anything.
I also needed to mop. I don’t have a mop. We had one of those old-fashioned wring mops at some point in our lives, but it left us.
You’re doing it wrong.
I like the old-fashioned wring-mops, but we don’t have a bucket either. And I'm not buying a mop AND a bucket. Not in this economy.
Then there was ... the Smart Mop.
Look, it’s made out of dead ShamWows!
You can use it as an umbrella!
It picks up ketchup AND dog hair AT THE SAME TIME!
You can use the Smart Mop to wipe up a spilled soda, wring it out into an empty glass, and DRINK THE SODA.
I like soda. Coke Zero and I go WAY back. As a teenager, I used Sprite to hydrate after excersise, like some some sort of derranged butterfly who was also a lousy tennis player.
But I don’t think I should be drinking soda through a mop. Or mop my floor with soda. Or something.
I guess I'll have to buy that bucket after all.
Edited to add: I do not promote the Smart Mop, nor do I work for the Smart Mop people. I'm pretty sure the folks at Smart Mop don't know me. If they did, that would be kind of creepy. In any case, I think their product sends the wrong message to this nation's impressionable youth. I shall write my local Congressman.
This just in: Husband just informed me that in the infomercial they claim "If you've got wood, you'll love this!" Awesome.
