One More Reason I Can't Clean

I just recently found this blog called Hyperbole and a Half and even though she swears every once in awhile, I think she's HYSTERICAL. Like I think I'm in love with her a little bit.

Anyway, I thought it would be a funny change up from regular 'just writing' posts, so this is my take with her style on what happened to me earlier today:

Let me set it up for you, my kids were watching tv.
This is what they looked like:

I needed to vacuum. I warned them before I did it that I was going to vacuum. I was going to be turning the vacuum on RIGHT NOW.

This is what ensued afterward from my son:

Turn the vacuum off.

Turn it back on.

Screaming, running in circles, running from one end of the room to the other whilst screaming.

So if you come to my house and my floors need vacuuming, you will know why it hasn't been done.


  1. How have I not heard of that blogger before? She is hilarious. And like the most popular blogger in the world, apparently. Well deserved.

  2. Very funny! My kids did this when they were little too - then when they get older they scream "Can't hear mom! Can't hear MOM! CAN'T HEAR MOM!!!!"
    Duh! Ha ha

  3. Oh crap. More competition. I'm going to up my funny to stay ahead. I get jealous when my readers fall in love with others.

    Yours was hysterical.

  4. Uh, 28,000 + followers?! What the FREAK?! Well, I have been humbled.

  5. I freaking LOVE her blog! I've been following for awhile now. She did a post on the 4 stages of Social Entrapment that was awesome!

    I like your illustrations AND excuse too!
