But I dealt with the prob- lem in the best manner pos- sible and called up Sis and a fnend to ask for their assis- tance with the task Good Samaritans that they both agreed to and I accepted before they had time to reconsider. The night of the big adven- we arrived at the empty rouse armed with cleansers and a little slcol that nobody really but we took inside anyway. The three of us stood dressed in too-short sloppy and dirty deliberating the pros and cons of where to start. The first point of assault was to be the fol- lowed up by the bedroom and then the living room While Sis and Bernice chat- tered back and I pro- ceeded to fill up a dump- ed in a bunch of detergent and added a liberal dousing of ammonia. my two helo- ers dutifully followed the pail and I into dipped their rags the water and screamed in horror. Protests of too much am- monia forced me to stand closer to the pail and breathe proving to them they were just sissies and the ammonia content was just right. Gagging and gasping for fresh I conceded to their cries for a new bucket of unadulterated water. In between cloth-rinsing and rest I found out my'two helpers were profes- sionals in the house-cleaning field. Sis claimed nine years of married life and two small children as ample references to her and Bernice could attest to spi ing-cleaning bees back home She added the head of the operation at home was bsr mother whose motto was 'if it's thgre wash it' My own credentials were sadly as I'd never been asked to clean a house from top to before I admitted this was my first attempt. That in itself was a mis- as from then no mat- ter what I professed to have Sis or Bennce would give it another going over 'just to be sure' the terrible trio did manage to get through the night and with relatively few injuries There was the time when Bernice stepped on Sis's toes as she surveyed her wall washing from a better van- tage point And Sis did gracefully slip off the unwanted stool while leaching for a corner of the narrowly missing my fingers which were in the wa- ter pail she also narrowly missed. As for I did double- time by re-washing what had already been introduc- ing streaks to clean spots After a solitary boat with the bsdioom Bernice emerged and joined tha two of us recuperating in the kit- chen We compared bruised sore and went home satisifed with hard work well done We returned the next day to view our masterpiece of co- operation in the only to find my oblivious to the blocd and tears we'd dragging in dusty carpets and heaving them into every clean room.
