Underachieving Cleaning Tip #2

If you hate to mop your kitchen floor, just like Yours Truly, then follow my easy instructions for a fast, quick, lazy clean. (The type of mopping only underachievers can achieve.)

1. Keep on the lookout for your two year old to decide to fill up his own sippy cup to the brim using the convenient/inconvenient refrigerator door water spout.
2. Ignore him while he tries to put on his own lid.
3. When he goes to take a drink from said sippy cup without the lid properly in place, gasp loudly as the ice cold water runs down his shirt and all over the kitchen floor.
4. Ignore him for ten more seconds to ensure a second spill of water in a different spot.
5. Help him put the lid on correctly and send him off to make mischief with a pat on the bum.
6. Grab a towel and drop it on the floor in the general vicinity of the 8 ounces of water.
7. Use preferred foot to swipe the towel through the 8 ounces of water.
8. Sweep the wet towel over the dirty spots in the kitchen until floor is presentable.
9. Leave towel on floor until a convenient time to take upstairs to the laundry room.
10. With a smile on your face, smack your hands together, then put your hands on your hips and say, "My job here is done!"
