My first experience cleaning locker rooms I discovered that apparently our members really like to eat tic tacs. Or at least they like to drop them on the floor. Vacuums don’t like to pick up said tic tacs and so it requires me to bend over and put it in my pocket for later toss out. I’m not kidding, one night I had six different flavors of tic tacs in my pocket! And no, I haven’t been tempted to eat them…yet. Why not Certs or Altoids? I don’t know, it’s a mystery! I’m starting to think that rather than Utah being known for green jello, maybe we should be known for large intakes of tic tacs.
Later I had the frustrating opportunity to familiarize myself with glitter and its ability to avoid the vacuum suckage. Who knew, right? Now please remember, this is a religious building, not the Las Vegas strip or Broadway in New York. But the wedding waiting areas and bride’s rooms are full of GLITTER. Didn’t you already catch a mate and therefore no longer need to distract them with bling? I’m not sure if brides walk in with hands full of glitter and toss it in front of them like rose petals. Can’t that wait until the reception? Or for your guests, shame on you for trying to have people look at you sparkling and not watching the bride. Seriously though, you leave a trail when you walk. I can see if you used the restroom, where you walked and when you sat down. Isn’t that a little embarrassing? You do realize that the expression ‘A sparking personality’ is just an expression and not meant to be taken literally, right?!
And for the record, glitter is now banned from my home. Not so much for tic tacs, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
