What Famous People Say About Household Chores
1. Cleaning the house while your kids are still growing is like shovelling the walk before it stops snowing
2. My second favourite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.
3. I'm not going to vacuum until Sears makes one you can ride on.
4. There was no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.
5. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
6. The best time for planning a book is while you're doing the dishes.
7. You don't get anything clean without getting something else dirty.
8. When it comes to housework the one thing no book of household management can never tell you is how to begin. Or maybe I mean why.
9. My idea of superwoman is someone who scrubs her own floors.
10. There is no daily chore so trivial that it cannot be made important by skipping it two days running.
11. Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day.
Simone de Beauvoir
12. I am never five minutes into stripping the clutter from my life before I start running into the clutter that is my life.
13. I always clean before the cleaning lady comes. If not, when I come home, I can't find anything. Cleaning ladies are always hiding the things you leave out
14. I have sporadic OCD cleaning moments around the house. But then I get lazy and I'm cured. It's a very inconsistent personality trait.
15. Dust is a protective coating for fine furniture
16. Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?
17. Housework is what a woman does that nobody notices unless she hasn't done it.
18. I hate housework. You make the beds, you wash the dishes and six months later you have you start all over again.
19. One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
