If there’s one thing I hate in life, it’s chocolate-covered raisins. Such deception!
A close second, however, is housework.
Dishes, tidying up, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, toilets, mirrors, counters, beds, shelves, drapes, dishes, windows, cooking, laundry, showers, mopping, dishes, and laundry -over and over in a neverending cycle!!
Growing up with chores, I knew my parents assigned them out of a sadistic sense of selfishness. When I’m older, I vowed, I am never doing jobs!
I haven’t quite checked that one off my bucket list.
I have learned which tasks I prefer over others. Like, loading a dishwasher or organizing a space instead of putting away clothes. And, I’ve talked with others who’ve told me their most- and least-favorite chores. An aunt says she hates vacuuming the floor but my sister loves it.
Which leads to today’s obvious question: do you think chocolate-covered raisins are an abomination?
All right, all right. Do you have a household task you’re fond of? What about one you despise?
