Cleaning day


Found this old picture of me cleaning that Jens took.

It always starts the same way. Me, all motivated, playing uptempo music from the computer, “getting in the mood”, focusing on treating me with something when it´s all over and done.
“Like a glas of wine, that would be perfect”, I tell myself. “...and that nice feeling of having a clean bathroom of course“.

I go to dig out the cleaning supplies only to find that the bottles are empty and the rags are gross. Back in the bathroom I realize that it´s more dirty then I had thought. Way worse actually. So I decide that “perhaps I need that wine during the cleaning, to stay motivated” and that´s when it´s really over. Next great idea I get is this one: “why listen to music when I can listen to a movie instead, you know, as company“.

And then I decide: “you know what, if I can watch a movie (or two ) in here without any distress I guess it can´t be that bad, right?”


PS: the movie on the screen is Boyhood, that I wrote about here.

I clean the same way. Infrequently, and it always ends with netflix and alcohol. Usually before anything is ACTUALLY clean.

Ha ha, hilarious. I read once “A clean house is a waste of time.” Feel so much better now.

Yes! Affirmation! I rather look at a clean bathroom on the internet than clean my own…
