  • There's never a fingertip bandaid around when you need it
  • Making the bed every day is a waste of time
  • More detergent does NOT make the clothes cleaner
  • There's really no time to watch The Price Is Right
  • After the meal is over...there's still more work to be done in the kitchen
  • There's a light in the oven

  • I need warning before having people for dinner
  • Knives go to the right

  • Most day-time phone calls are tele-marketers
  • Please wait till my floor dries before walking on it
  • The bathroom is a good place to cry
