Today’s writing prompt from the Daily Post at WordPress:

You, Robot

Congrats — you’ve been handed a robot whose sole job is to relieve you of one chore, job, or responsibility you particularly hate. What is it?

Robot, you are now in charge of cleaning my house. You will wash all the the windows, inside and out, not missing a single doggy nose print.  You’ll dust, not leaving a speck on my five hundred piece glass bird collection. You will vacuum the carpets and steam clean regularly, paying special attention to the beer stains. You’ll need to get the porcelain sparkling and the grout de-mildewed. Of course, the walls will need a periodic washing to keep the graffiti under control.  When it comes to cleaning floors, mops and Swiffers are off limits.  Be ready to get on your knees and scrub, scrub, scrub! Be sure to get all the hairspray, mousse and hair gel off the bathoom floor- teenagers, you know.  And pay special attention to the area right in front of the toilet; no matter how old they are, the boys still can’t seem to hit the mark.

Dōmo arigatō, Mr. Roboto!
