You know that acronym for CHAOS? Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome? I decided quite a while ago that I wasn't going to live like that. Gone are the days of not inviting friends in because I have a sink full of dishes and toys are all over the house.
Y'all can just come on in!
(Just watch your step, and don't trip on the toys!)
(And hopefully you won't need to use the sink, cuz there's no more room in it.)
There's a lot to be said for living this way.
So I'm gunna brag a little on all the benefits I offer to someone who comes over and relaxes on my couch:
Hungry? Food is seconds away! Just reach down into the couch cushions! 100 bucks says you'll find M&Ms, potato chips, cheez-its, ABC gum and popcorn. A feast, I tell you!
If you'd like a new hairstyle, just reach down there and have your pick from 7 different hair clips.
If conversation comes to a lull, don't despair! Better entertainment is to be had! Right underneath your bottom is a headless, naked Barbie doll. The possibilities are endless......
Thirsty from all the treats? Now this time you need to reach a little further. Pass the couch cushions, and reach all the way down to the bottom, underneath the couch. That's right.... you are just inches away from your choice of 3 thirst quenching flavors of juice boxes. I promise there will be at least a few drops left in each box. Forget the formality of straws, just squirt it right on in.....
A visit here will save you money, too - because you don't even need to take your daughter to Target on the way home. A (kind of) clean pair of Beauty and the Beast panties are right next to you, underneath the toss pillow. Go ahead, take 'em.
I just love to spoil my friends.
