Swiffers and Strippers

My Suzy homemaker self has been in overdrive these last few days between preparing for a visit from the in-laws and making chicken soup for my sniffly husband. The weird part is that alternatively chopping carrots and scrubbing shower grout has actually been quite nice. Sometimes you really do need to just hunker down and Swiffer, right? Just me? Perhaps. Yesterday I had to buy a new one as the last snapped with some overzealous scrubbing. I guess I like to get my back into it.

Anyway, I need to go get the laundry on the line. But if you have a minute, read this excellent personal essay: When we were strippers on Salon. Seems even the former strippers are busy cleaning their suburban homes.
