starchy.

so we got a new temporary boy roommate this past weekend, and as he makes his "bed" (the couch) in the mornings he's definitely the best we've had thus far.

as he's neat and clean and stuff, he inquired about whether or not we had spray starch, to which i replied that i was pretty sure we did, as i vividly visualized this blue canister of it somewhere in my apartment.

a hunt ensued, and 10 fruitless minutes later i was staring quizzically at a can of oven cleaner and he was heading out to c-town to purchase some starch so his work clothes would look presentable (unlike mine and missy's).

upon his arrival home, we discovered something amazing that completely explained all the confusion --

Easy-On is a spray starch in a medium blue cylindrical canister.
Easy-Off is an over cleaner in a medium blue cylindrical canister.

what havoc that minor difference must cause. thank goodness i figured this out before my middle-age housewifing years.

I have never used starch. Jesus, where does this man work, Prada?

we wish. imagine the discount he could get us?

Chuckles said...

Yeah, but still.

Starch? Didn't that go out with calling women dames?

Come to think of it, I may start calling women dames now.

missy&chrissy said...

oh yes, bring that back!

we'd love to be called dames. especially when wearing our elbow-length gloves and cape.

Swap the starch and oven cleaner - just for a giggle!

And I'm with Chuckles - STARCH!?
