I decided to join the 21st century and buy a Swiffer wet mop, which I'd seen advertised on TV and which looked so handy. So yesterday I made the purchase and came home all excited about mopping my kitchen floor. Though I'd never before needed to read instructions for a mop, I thought I should read the Swiffer instructions, since it was not your ordinary mop. I only got this far:
STEP 1: Insert four AA batteries.
Batteries? In a mop? That tickled my funny bone, and I couldn't stop laughing.
Of course, we didn't have any AA batteries - or rather, we hadn't yet found the ones we packed and moved. Mopping would have to wait until another day. What a great new excuse!
