It wasn’t that long ago that I had a formal job, where I had to actually report to a live, adult human being. I sometimes wore this unique style of shirt that had buttons and a collar – far different than my current ensemble.
I was fortunate enough to have a job where we had an in-house chef, an occasional chauffeur and if we had a light bulb go out, someone clogged the toilet or we spotted a mouse – we’d call facilities/maintenance and someone would stop by on a golf cart and take care of business.
Every other Friday, this little slip of paper used to appear on my desk after lunch and I could take it to the bank and the people that worked there would file it away and hand me money! And I could spend it on whatever I wanted whenever I wanted!
These days, those funny collared shirts are collecting dust until I need one for a baptism, funeral or considered dressing like a nerd for Halloween. With three little wildlings bouncing off the furniture and devouring their meals like piglets at feed time – I stick to white t-shirts (that Clorox Regular Bleach helps me keep fresh and vibrant) and end up recycling my shorts several days in a row (please, no barfing).
There’s no more chef serving up grilled swordfish or garlic scapes, it’s me, frantically searching for a slow cooker meal that I can set on auto-pilot to make the afternoon a little easier. And I’m the chauffeur – flying back and forth between pre-school and elementary drop-off and pick-up.
And before I take everyone to the playground, I’m wiping down countertops and toilet seats with Clorox Microscrubber wipes. Strong enough to remove sticky residue and powerful enough to get rid of all those germs that make their way home from the germ incubators (school).
These bad boys kill 99.9% of germs that can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours, as well as 99.9% of viruses* and bacteria – plus Staph, E. Coli, salmonella and strep.
There’s no more guys in ‘facilities’ stopping by in the golf cart to plunge the toilet or hop up on a stepstool to change that hot, burned out light bulb. And I’m the guy that gets called when there’s a BIG spider that needs to be ‘relocated’ back outside to join its mom and dad (evidently we’re not allowed to kill anything in our house).
I’m the Jack of all trades, master of none – but I’m doing my best – and Clorox is arming me with the tools I need to keep the place in order!
