the shower stall edition

Well, I've got Father's Day taken care of. I cleaned the man's shower stall today.

You may not think this is a big deal, but actually it's a huge fucking deal. I'm pretty certain it's been a year since that disgusting thing was last cleaned. I'm not really sure, as I stay away from that area, but judging from the black and red mold that I found on the walls and floor, I'd say that was a pretty reasonable guess.

You should have seen me, I was a thing of beauty. Looked like I walked straight out of a wet dream I did, in my hazmat gear - safety goggles, mask, rubber gloves and rubber boots. I think I saw the same outfit in a porn flick once.

Anyhoo, the hubby was altogether surprised and quite pleased with his early Father's Day gift and this should free me up from having to perform any Father's Day sexual favours.

Here's the Friday Random Playlist that kept me company for part of the three hours that it took me to decontaminate that place.

Long time running - the Tragically Hip
Company you keep - Great Aunt Ida
Little bear - Guillemots
Pickin' it up - Hot Hot Heat
Gravitate to me - The The
Drunk target - Kid Koala
A lover sings - Billy Bragg
Salt of the earth - Rolling Stones
Hello time bomb - Matthew Good
Reel around the fountain - the Smiths

I hope all you beautiful crazy kids have a great weekend. Maybe somebody who loves you will sneak into your room and wash all your dirty underwear.

If you've seen rubber boots, you've been watching the wrong porn. Everyone knows it's all stilettos, all the time. Rubber gloves, on the other hand...

Allison said...

Gotta agree with John there. And your label killed me :)

John, Al, I think it must have been a very low budget film. Thankfully these were not Hello Kitty rubber boots or anything like that, because that would definitely have been the wrong porn.

Wet Dream?

"my hazmat gear - safety goggles, mask, rubber gloves and rubber boots"

I'm pretty sure I told you to stay out of my head.

Deb said...

maybe you could perform the sexual favors while wearing the gear?

you never fail to crack me up...when I'm down I click on your site and *voila*, happy moment.

Evelyne said...

Hazmat gear to clean, that's pretty cool, at least you know that you were relatively safe, because black and red mold doesn't sound good to me. Thanks for posting that, it really made me laugh

I have my moments, Jen, but try not to make a habit of it. I was actually thinking of before and after shots, but decided I didn't want that on my permanent record. At least this way I can pretend I just made the whole thing up.

I tried, but I can't JustA, it's just way too interesting in there.

You should have been here with me during the actual decontamination event, Deb, it was a laugh a minute, it was!

Black and red mold didn't sound all that appealing to me either, Evelyne. I can't imagine showering in those conditions, but I guess it does cut down on lingering in the shower.

pickin' it up... very appropriate song title for cleaning. :)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It is that, 668, Long Time Running fits right in there as well.

black and red mold?...you should have saved samples....grow them in some agar plates...maybe create a new life saving medicine...or mind-altering drug at least

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Damn, I should have thought of that, Kelly. Coulda been rich! Or at least stoned.

Thanks for the Fathers Day message!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I hope it was a good day for you, Danny!

Yeah, shower cleaning is hard work and pretty thoughtful...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Well, I figured Jer was better off buying his own fishing gear, and the shower cleaning thing was something he would never do for himself, so...
