Basement War – Going Morgenthau On The Spiders

Filed under: Basement War — lbej @ 16:18

Efforts now underway to alter the fundamental disposition of the basement with a view toward making re-infestation impossible.  On Sunday bulk waste items were taken out to the curb to be collected by the city, including but not limited to an elliptical machine, a recumbent bike, furniture, lamps, appliances, yard equipment, child vehicles, two hoses, and lots of broken wood and metal.  This was a significant effort on the part of everyone but Reagan; Jenny was cited for particular valor and awarded the croix de guerre.  People drive around neighborhoods right before bulk pickup and take things that are left out, and about half of our junk was gone before the city trucks arrived Monday morning.  Reagan retreated to the inside after one of the more agriculturally attired gentlemen hunting for junk in front of our house showed a little bit more of his backside to the world than she was willing to accept.  Reagan would like a return to Victorian dress.  I want to dress like this:

With the basement now cleared of all large items that don’t factor into my plans for it, I will proceed to the cleaning and disinfecting operations I envisioned when the war began.  I shall deploy the 1st (‘Besom’) and 2nd (‘Push’) divisions of the Mop and Broom Corps first, and I have several Chemical divisions in reserve.  I can see the future, and it has a ping pong table.

  1. I’m trying to remember what Reagan was calling those men – butt-showers maybe? I’m so glad we cleared out so much junk.
