Am I the only one…. Who has weird thoughts every now and then?

Recently I was sitting on the throne having thoughts about the age old discussion of whether the seat should be left up or down. Sweetie goes nuts when I tell her things like this.

Anyway, as a general rule, women want the toilet seat to be down…   considering the fact that most women think of their husbands as slobs, I’m surprised that more women aren’t tickled as hell to walk in and find the seat up after their husband has just left the bathroom…. Considering the alternative, that is.

I myself have resolved to cure my lady’s problem by never touching it again.   I’ll just let it fly, wherever the seat is….. Sort of, “let the drips fall where they may.” so to speak.

…Course, by now, she’s got me so beaten down that I now squat to pee, so I want the seat down too, especially when I make one of those middle of the night trips that, at my age have become such a regular part of my sleep pattern.

More about cleaning floors…

CLEANING/FLOORS Hardwood floors – Murphy’s® oil soap is by far the best cleaner for Sealed wood floors – However, Murphy’s® Oil soap and water should only be used once a month to prevent the wood floors from drying out. In lieu of Murphy’s®, let two teabags steep in boiling bucket of water for a few minutes, soak a soft cloth in the tea and wring it out. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked thus enabling the floor to dry quickly. To remove heel marks from wood floors, a little kerosene or lighter fluid on a soft cloth will do the trick. A typewriter eraser can also be used to remove heel marks. (Tell the truth, just when did you last use a typewriter or an eraser? As a matter of fact, when was the last time you had kerosene or lighter fluid handy?) Grout – Mix ½ cup of baking soda with ¼ cup Borax and add hot water making a thick paste. Apply to grout. Gently scrub in with a soft brush. Let sit 15 – 20 minutes, then rinse. Remove wax buildup – Freshen up your floor by washing it with a mixture of 1 cup ammonia in 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water. Let the solution sit for three to five minutes, then scrub with a nylon or plastic scouring pad to remove the old wax. Wipe away leftover residue with a clean cloth or sponge, then give the floor a thorough rinsing. To wash a highly waxed floor & retain its shine, use a cup of fabric softener in a half pail of water.
