Chaos ensues

I venture out of the misery that is the office only to find this-

The guilty one is easy to spot. His error (he used regular old liquid dishsoap) was thrilling to him as he'd only seen this kind of thing on sitcoms. P.S- Everyone should have a shop vac. It gets us out of more situations where we don't know what to do.

Hysterical! One time we were vacationing with our friends Debi and Pauli. Pauli was cooking breadfast, so Debi thought it would be nice to make Pauli a bubble bath. However, the bathtub had a jacoozi thing and she turned it on with the bubble soap in it. We came into the bathroom and the bubbles were going up the wall and all over the floor. It was so funny! Unfortunately, we did not have a shop vac on vacation, so we spent about 2 hours laughing hysterically and cleaning it up!

Please send him over to do that at my house. That might be the only way my kitchen floor will get really clean.

(I also liked Krissy's bubbly bathtub story.)

Krissy- That sounds like Johnny's dream world!

Carol- He's on his way.

Betmo- I once asked him to put clothes in the dryer. To start the dryer you gently turn the know to the left and release. He turned hard to the left and broke the durn knob. He's got a knack for that stuff. But I'm not stupid. I keep on asking. He's not getting off that easy.

Hayden- I could give you so many reasons. Is it just me?

JM- You win funniest comment!

CM- Too true.

Nice to see someone else using their shopvac in the same fashion as I have!! No stones will be thrown from this entity.

NOTE TO GUILTY PARTY: We are NEVER ALONE. There are those before us and surely those to come.

Another lesson in "Be careful what you ask for": My hubby just over-filled a 5-gallon water bottle. WWWaaaayyy over-filled it - all over the kitchen (he wasn't in the room while it was filling).

My floor is now clean.

You can still send your son over, though.

My dishwasher decides to overflow and flood once and a while. I'm a renter - and the guy who came up to look at it the 3rd time just said, "who knows, maybe it just doesn't like your cooking."

Carol- He is on his way!

Lapopessa- How rude! Maybe it needs to be replaced!!!

Alice- Glad to see I'm not alone in my adoration of the shopvac.

La Bellina- yea.

Mary, it's a male imperative to foul up the kitchen from time to time. If we didn't, you gals would work out butts off!! ;-)

What? You didn't trust him to use the shop-vac to clean up his own mess?

At least he did the dishes. Shop Vac's are gods answer to overzealous people, I think.

Shop Vacs need to stay in the shop. ;-)
