He's lucky we have a small house
Joe: "Does that mean 'wall washing and stuff'?"
Joe: "Why do we do that? I mean, I never heard of anyone wall washing like you always do."
Me: "Well, you like the house clean and that makes it nice and clean. And besides, I like the smell of Soilax."
Joe: "They don't even make that stuff anymore."
Me: "Yeah, well, you can get the generic. Too bad. We're doing it. This weekend."
Me: "I don't think we need to do the ceiling in our room though--it looks pretty clean."
Joe: (thinking) "Can't we just do a dry wipe?"
Me: "What the hell is a 'dry wipe'?"
Joe: "You know, you just wipe the walls with a dry rag."
Me: "And what the hell does that do?"
Joe: "I dunno. It just seems like a whole lot less work."
Me: "Yeah. No."
This conversation is repeated every. Single. Spring.
And no, we never "dry wipe". Whatever the hell that is.
