Dust Betties

The experts say that most of what makes up dust in a house is dead skin cells.

If that's the case, I'm sure I've wiped a full corpse off my furniture and knick-knacks today.  I wonder if CSI could find a fingerprint in my house with all the wiping down I've done.

You know, it never looks that dusty until you get down to dusting, really.  You only dust minimally, day to day, then suddenly you're living in a litter box.  No wonder my cats thought that the treat fairy might be summoned from the top of the fridge when I was wiping up there.  Down below the treats were already used.

Speaking of dead skin cells and corpses, enjoy Feliz Navidad sung by a Bette Davis impersonator.  Day six of my audio advent calendar is a drag.


  1. I vacuumed half of the house yesterday (Pat had already done the other half.) That isn't the same thing as dusting but it likely does pickup some of that dust type stuff. Part of our "dust" is what is left by the cats from us giving them kitty candy (catnip.) I'd almost bet there is more of that around our house in the form of dust than dead human skin cells.

    Anyway, it is good to see that you are still blogging. I don't get around as often as I used to but do like to check on my blogging friends every once in awhile.
