Ugh. Clearly evil hippo spirits (hippohippohippo - you're right). You should re-think the cleaning service because evil hippos have NOTHING on evil dust bunnies. *shudder*
I JUST WANT TO TRY.
My hope is that I can somehow NOT tie any of my IDENTITY up with this, so i don;t begin to equate "dirty-floor" with "Total failure as a woman, wife, mother and human being." Which is, I am beginning to recall, why I got the service in the first place.
Hippos are so BIG, you don;t really expect LARGE things to be INSIDIOUS. And yet..
AYOC? How can you write AND discontinue your cleaning service at the same time? Did you dicover that your cleaning staff keeps hippos as malign pets? Do they dress them with big, pink bows around the fat hippo necks? Because there can be no other defensible reason for forcing yourself to clean a toilet when you have a deadline. None. In fact, when I sell WILL, the first thing I'm doing is hiring a cleaning service.
