I love vacuuming. I love cleaning. And I definitely love the fresh fragrance that comes after you have sprinkled just a tinge of carpet freshener on the carpet. So one day…it was some random day in January, I decided to vacuum. I ran to the bathroom, grabbed my Glade Tropical mist carpet freshener –ah, I can smell it now— and proceeded to sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle. I sprinkled everywhere: in the bedroom, in the living room, in the bathroom and in the front of our entrance door. Of course, I got heavy-handed when I got to the door because I wanted people to smell the freshness of the rug as soon as they walked in. Then the phone rang. I answered. I talked. Then someone knocked on the door. I responded. I handled the situation. Then it was time to go to class. I figured, “I’ll just run to class and come back. No big deal.” Then my wife called and asked me to pick her up. It wasn’t until seven hours later that I was able to come home and deal with the mess that I had created.
