How to clean your house and have fun at the same time!
Saturday, November 29, 2008

Our home sits beneath a canopy of live oaks, which means it gets pretty messy. It has been a good five years since I last pressure-washed the house, so I recently asked my handy friend, Fritz, to bring his pressure washer over and help me out. He told me: Okay, but only if you serve Bloody Mary's. And I agreed.

It was a big job ... so we developed what I now call "tag-team pressure-washing." Guy No. 1 washes until he feels a tap on his shoulder from Guy No. 2. Then. Guy No. 1 retreats to the chair in the sun, where he sips on his Bloody Mary. After about five minutes, he returns to relieve his friend, tapping him on the shoulder ... and round and round you go.

By the end of the day we were pretty ... er ... wet. And when my wife went to run an errand she said, "No ladders while I'm gone, you guys -- I mean it."

Probably a good idea.

Further proof that they should make me the next Mr. Clean:
