Chores GalorePosted: August 26, 2014
Sunday’s Daily Prompt:
Congrats — you’ve been handed a robot whose sole job is to relieve you of one chore, job, or responsibility you particularly hate. What is it?
What a lucky robot! He doesn’t really have much to do.
The chore I hate the most is vacuuming. Fortunately, Ian takes care of that.
I don’t mind dishes, or laundry, or cleaning the stove top. I’ll happily fold clothes and match socks. I like the trash roundup–the kitchen trash is the only one that fills regularly, so once a week-ish one of us dumps the remaining six trash cans into a bag to take outside. Wow. We totally have seven trash receptacles in our five rooms. That seems like a lot.
It would be nice to have a robot for pet care, to clean the litter boxes and turtle tank. Ian does these, but I’m sure he’d appreciate it.
Or does it have to be a chore/job specific to me? Hm.
In that case, my robot can certainly spend all his time cutting fabric. I’ll just program in the pattern I need and throw something pretty at him. The pattern-cutting-out part is my least favorite part of sewing. If I had a robot to take care of that, I guarantee I’d sew way more.
Or could I just have a robot hand!?
If you haven’t, you should watch The IT Crowd.
