1. Does anyone else remember hanging clothes on the line to dry or taking them out of the dryer only to grab the water bottle (ours was a Pepsi bottle with the "Sprinkler" top pushed down into it.) and sprinkle those same clothes, roll them up and put them in a pillow case to dampen them in order to then iron them, all spiffy? They had to sit a while to evenly distribute that dampness. I seem to remember a friend's mother that put them in the refrigerator to rest. It must have been summer and she didn't want them to sour.
2. I have seen the TV program "What Would You Do" commercials, but I've not watched it. I know what I would do. Being in retail, I have seen women yank and scream at their children to stop crying because the mother has been in the dang store, trying on clothes until 9pm or later during the holidays, and the poor child is tired and bored. I've wanted to go smack the woman and see how she liked it but I had to swallow my anger and do nothing. So unless a child looks in danger from a parent, sad to say, I do nothing. If a man is physically threatening a female, then I would step in. I haven't, but I know myself. Bigotry and racism I can't tolerate. I would have to do something. My daughters call it "Going all Mom on them." Most other things, I wouldn't interfere. I did see the host, John Quiñones on a morning program. He said far more women get involved than men. I'm proud of us. So, what would you do or what have you done?
3. The worst job in the house is cleaning behind the toilet. Face meet toilet bowl. My sister told me to pour bleach in it and close the lid. Doesn't matter. Worse job to me. What household chore do you dislike the most?
4. My Entertainment Weekly had a list of the 10 movies that made us cry. Some were old, some were new and some that made me cry didn't make the list. My favorites are Ghost, P.S. I Love You, and Benjamin Button. What's your favorite?
5. Does anyone else (during the late 1950s or early 60s pack small boxes to send to Africa? I remember doing that. We brought in small toothpastes and soaps and pencils and etc, etc. to send to the poor children in Africa. It seems there has always been a need there.
6. Those Febreeze Commercials that "supposedly" take place in a squalor of an apartment or a slum basement or kitchen, do not entise me to buy their product. Icky
Just clearing out the cobwebs today. Do you have any random thoughts to get off your chest?
