Quickie

[Well, I liked it.]



A while back I noticed a bit of mold was setting in inside the dial of the shower knob so I took it apart and cleaned it as a surprise for the Husband who uses that shower. (Me? I'm a tub gal, remember.)

Then ...

Hubby: *turns on shower* *sound of piece of shower knob hitting shower floor* Ever since you cleaned that mold out of the shower knob, every time I turn on the shower, the front of the knob pops off.

Me: Huh. Sorry.

Hubby: That mold was the only thing holding it in place!

yet another lesson proving housework is EVIL and should be avioded at all costs

I agree with Tina! I usually just aim the squirter of my super toxic mold killer stuff (I think I have Arm & Hammer right now) & then run like heck...

I'm lost without a question. What is your question?!?!?!

And no song title? Who are you? May I suggest Joe Cocker, You Can Leave the Mold On.

Mike said...

See, no good deed goes unpunished.

lolololololol!!!

This is why I'm afraid to clean Miniature Bathroom. I'm terrified it will all fall apart if it's actually mold free.

Mold is the only thing holding Keith Richards together as well.

Barbara said...

I don't think I'd want to be subjected to hot mold every day. Maybe a little dab of glue or chewing gum is in order!

Funny how the best of intentions often have unpredictable consequences...

Cyndy said...

Was he surprised that you cleaned the mold off of his shower knob? It sounds like he may have developed a new appreciation for the mold now that it is gone. Oh well...

LiLu said...

It's the little things.

LiLu said...

And in response to that shower curtain, I give you this.

Bilbo said...

Most husbands would be delighted if their wives cleaned their...uh...never mind.

Matt said...

HAHA, Narms comment was great.

poor Kieth Richards.

Elizabeth said...

Too funny! My better half broke the vacuum... er... it broke while he was using it. I think it was a ploy to avoid future cleaning. :)

Tina: You've convinced me.

The Bug: Super toxic? You run? I thought bugs can survive just about anything.

Bowie Mike: Caller? Caller?? We seem to have a bad connection. Also, GREAT song.

Mike: You'd think I would have learned that from blogging.

froggy: I've never seen a frog laugh before. How... charming!

Kate: Best not take a chance.

Narm: Mold and daddy's ashes?

Barbara: I'll pass on your suggestion. I've delegated all future fixes.

Cyndy: He *was* surprised I cleaned his knob. (Damn, I thought I could type that with a straight face.)

LiLu: Mostly, yeah.

LiLu: Thanks, I'd seen it via email but it's worth propagating.

Bilbo: You'd think.

Matt: If I can serve as a straight man for Narm, my job is done.

Elizabeth: He's a genius! Hold on to him.

Yes- I have also broken many a household gadget by cleaning it free of it's mold/sludge. Stupid mold- they should bill that stuff as glue.

never thought mold could be a good thing, good to know
