15 bathroom, Scrub a dub, dub. Chores are simply a pain. The chores that I truly detest are scouring the bathroom, cleaning the kitchen, and taking care of my dog. Chores should only be for maids. bathroom sink mirror with Windex feel like I am a maid Mainly, I loathe cleaning the bathroom. Starting with the sink, I have to scrub it until it shines brightly. ► After that, I have to take the tip of my fingernail and get the crusty old toothpaste off of the porcelain. Gross! Then, I spray the mirror with Windex until it has sparkles. Squirt! Squirt! Squirt! ► Why is it when people brush their teeth they leave little drops of water all over the mirror? ► A simple solution would be to dry off the mirror while the sprayed water is still wet and it would come off quite easily. I feel like I am a maid for hire when cleaning the bathroom and I am only nine years old. ► Give me a break. Cleaning bathrooms is definitely NOT on my list of favorite things to do. © 2010 Write Reflections and its licensors

16 Furthermore, I have to make the kitchen glisten. The countertops have to be washed down with bleach water in order to get rid of germs and the floor gets a coat of bleach, as well. ► Of course, my hands smell like I took a bath in bleach after all of that is accomplished. Sometimes I use Pine Sol instead of bleach. ► It has a better smell and it doesn’t make my lungs burn. My final task is taking out the smelly ole’ trash to the dumpster and boy does it reek. ► It never fails that something has leaked out into the trashcan and then “ I” get the pitiful job of cleaning that out, too. ► There comes the bleach again. Gag me! © 2010 Write Reflections and its licensors

17 dog Taking care of my dog Monty is another chore that I can't bear. It is not that I don’t love him; it is just a big task. Every day I have to feed him and scoop out his dog food into his large bowl. ► People probably think I smell like a dog myself after that because that dog food makes my hands stink. On the weekends, I have to bathe Monty so he doesn’t make the whole house smell. ► Guess what he does when I bathe him? He shakes all of his wet water onto me and then he rubs up against me leaving his thick black hair all over my body. ► “You’re gonna get it!” I yell to him. One time I had to chase him around the neighborhood because he took off like a bunny rabbit on the run across Mr. Vert’s yard. ► Luckily, Mr. Vert didn’t see Monty trample all over his flower garden or he would have been steaming mad. bathroom Doing chores is a bore. I guess if I didn’t clean the bathroom, the kitchen and my dog … nobody would. Well, I have to go. I have to call Maid Pro. You might want their number, too. It is They do a great job! © 2010 Write Reflections and its licensors

18 Bows © 2010 Write Reflections and its licensors A messy house is a happy house, and this house was delirious. Not… any more. House closed – until help arrives. I have to go call Maid Pro. Their number is … Cleaning is for maids, not for kids. Chores should be detested by ALL. Are you for hire? I need a maid.
