Spring-cleaning time is here and it has officially begun when we start looking to clear out those accumulations we’ve accumulated all winter or give them to other accumulators.
Who started Spring Cleaning? I’m sure it was the cave people.
When the winter freeze was over, the stench of thawing old bison parts would send you running for the great outdoors and that fresh spring air.
Hercules had an easier task cleaning out the Augean stables.
He only had to divert a river.
But let’s make more room because summer’s coming, and I’m sure we’ll need room for those summer things we’ll accumulate, and in the fall, think about throwing them out next spring.
It’s one of those deadly cycles you can’t escape; like going to work each day.
What exactly are we talking about here?
Clothes hangers clone themselves faster than your HMO says no to any procedure.
I’ve noticed a trend. Bags of bags are piling up and we haven’t filled enough of them with presents or garbage to keep ahead of the bag curve.
There are plastic bags from the grocery and dept. stores and the heavy duty decorated gift bags. They’ve become the wrapping du Jour for gifts.
No one reads an entire magazine but you want to save them anyway for that one article which you will read someday. That someday is never.
It all comes down to this: you’ll have to save those bags and clothes hangers and magazines because the unwritten law of the universe says you’ll need them the day after you throw them out.
That’s why we won’t go against universal law. We’ll simply think about it once again next spring!
