It's Scarey Under There.

In the interest of National Security I received a call today about a suspicious looking green substance that was under my couch. Honest to God, I did move my couch and clean under it a few weeks ago when we put the Christmas tree in. I know I'm bad because I only clean under my couch a few times a year but Holy Mother of God - where does this stuff come from? Can 2 cats and 1 dog make that much dust in three weeks? I guess the answer is yes. I didn't know we had gumballs in the house.

I looked under my couch a few weeks ago and shrank away in terror. I'm too afraid to go back to clean it. I think there's a bear under there....

The mysterious green stuff looks suspiciously like play doh or glow-in-the-dark silly putty.

I have learned not to look behind and under my couch. Just move it and hope the items behind it scatter when the light hits.

OMG! Too Funny! Thanks for the laugh Sheri.
I changed my living room around after the tree was taken down and although there was a little dust, to my surprise I didn't find much else. A feather that the cat plays with is all. Now, every once in a while I take the bed apart and vac under it (my vac doesn't fit under it so I have to take it completely apart). You can't imagine the things I find under there. And I usually find about four piles of cat throw-up. Gross! Humans MUST be the dirtiest living creatures on Earth! Here's a thought...Have you ever found an empty birds nest? They are perfectly clean, and it's that way after giving birth to more than one baby! Think about it! Later Babe!

Your floors are in better shape, but otherwise this looks like my house.

I would even DARE show a pic of my living room right now let alone under the couch. I can't even BEGIN to imagine what is growing under there!

I think you're supposed to put the green stuff on sushi.

Funny...that's about how often I clean under my couch too...always find something fun and exciting!!!!

Sarah said...

Hilarious! You are brave to show what's under there.
I have no clue what might be under my couches...and I have no intention of looking unless I am planning on moving them! What you can't see, can't hurt you..right?

i moved my couch the other day and found some socks and books and lots of mysterious stuff.. isn't it amazing how gross it gets under there without us knowing.

I'm much too afraid to look under my couch, let alone move it.

I guess the same goes for every single piece of furniture I own.

You're a brave woman.

Did you find my husbands glasses? Our couch at them but after a major search they are no where to be found, maybe your couch took them?
