Some People Clean Up Nicely
My days are filled with mopping kitchen floors and skinning chicken. And with 5 boys, I use tylex like a band aide for everything in the bathrooms. But the tylex has bleach and bleach stains. So my everyday clothes have stains. But I wear them anyway, having long abandoned the goal of French manicures or skinny jeans during the day. And I wear these clothes when I exercise, where they are just going to get all sweaty anyway. Last week I was washing my hands at the gym and the woman behind me informed me of an orange spot on the back my yoga pants. I told her it was probably bleach from cleaning. She was not impressed and told me again it was a very big spot. Oh well, if it bothered her that much it was finally time to get rid of those old pants anyway. On the weekend when I did change out of sweat pants, I put on dangling earrings and painted my nails twice and the top coat was sparkly. No bleached stained clothes tonight! We were at a party, meeting new people and having fun conversations with old friends, when a person I had just met came up to me and whispered in my ear, "The $16.99 Marshals tag is hanging on the back of your sweater." Oh my gosh.
