Cleanup on Aisle Kitchen

MERCI:  As you already know, dirt is Marcus's favorite color.  He'd coat the whole house in it if Jan would stop vacuuming.

RUSTY:  In yesterday's post (Marcus's Best Friend Returned) we mentioned "the vacuum that spilled dirt all over the place was returned to Walmart for a refund the other day, despite Marcus' protests the dirty vacuum was his new best friend."

MICAH: And our friend Loulou (Living with Loulou) had us rolling on the floor laughing at her emailed comment.  We think she really understands our Marcus. 

Marcus, you have to get a life. A vacuum cleaner is your best friend????
Oh, boy....
Wait 'til Jan gets a really cute mop.

CYNDI:  We have a mop but have never considered it cute. Still, we had visions of Marcus becoming best buds with it, or with one similar.

PERCY:  So, in the interest of reporting only the facts, we asked Marcus how he feels about mops in general and our mop, in particular.

MARCUS:  A mop is such fun.  Jan and I both get some good exercise.  She pushes it and I chase it.  A great toy.

SAM:  But would you like to become best friends with one?  Shake its handle or give it an occasional hug?

MARCUS:  What, are you, nuts!  Why would I want to hug a mop?  But I love dirt, so, yeah, if it's dirty, we could definitely become best friends.

BUDDY:  Oh, great.  Merci, get the mop.  Sam, grab the bucket.  Percy, can you manage some projectile vomiting from the top of the fridge?  Jaaaaaaaan,  clean up needed on Aisle Kitchen!

CYNDI:  So this week we're thankful for a little peace while Marcus bonds with our mop.  What are you thankful for?
