Good morning Everyone!
About three weeks ago, several round white spots, maybe two inches in diameter, and a long smear of white appeared on the kitchen floor. Kayla said she had tried to mop them up, but it hadn’t worked, and neither had vacuuming.
I was tired of looking at them by Sunday, so yesterday evening I sat down on the floor and started working on getting those spots up. The spots were made by a thick, hard substance, though, and the only way to remove them was to scrape the substance off with a knife. It was too thin, too uniform and not stretchy enough to be gum but it was too tough to be something like sugar or icing.
After a while, Kayla joined me on the floor to help. She wanted to know if I knew what the spots were. I told her I wasn’t sure, but I was beginning to think I might be better off not knowing. Realizing I was talking about unwanted critters, she said “Eeee-youuuuuuuuuu!”
She helped me scrape for a while in silence, then she said, “These spots look exactly like someone got mad and slung the stove top cleaner around without realizing that it wasn’t shut good.”
I sat back to look at her, and she added, “Not that I did anything like that!”
I let her off on a technicality.
(For the record, Mark and I went into the bedroom and shut the door so we could laugh until our sides hurt at her non-confession.)
Have a great day!
FN. We have a glass cook top on our stove, and it requires a special cleaner that rubs on like a paste and then is wiped off with paper towel. Apparently once the stuff dries without being rubbed off, it is impenetrable.
