Quotidian

Don’tcha just love that word? It means: of or occurring everyday; daily. Ordinary or everyday, especially when mundane. Perfect word for me because ordinary and mundane is not just in my wheelhouse, it IS my wheelhouse.

Today’s mundanity – (yeah, that’s a word, I looked it up.)

πŸ› Microfiber cleaning cloths – I have extolled their virtues before and I just get delighted by them almost every day. (talk about mundane, right? I lead such an exciting life that cleaning cloths delight me…so sad!)

Anyway, I now use them as washcloths, so much nicer than those thick terry cloth washcloths. (Everyone doesn’t call everything by the same name, by ‘washcloth’ I am talking about that cloth you use in the shower or bath to clean yourself with.) (Ending a sentence with a preposition – used to be a big no-no, now it’s perfectly okay, and I say “Why not – what’s the big deal” and then I hear in my head “That is something up with which I will not put” Supposedly Winston Churchill said that.)

It looks like you are getting two posts in one – the second one being parenthetical.

As I was saying, microfiber cloths make wonderful washcloths because they are thin and fit in all the little cracks and crevices so nicely. They are super soft. They rinse out nicely and dry quickly and never get smelly. So.

Oh, I’ve got some bad news for all y’all – I ordered a lapel mic which means I might be doing more tawky posts. I’m hoping the lapel mic will eliminate that echo I get when I record using my computer’s internal microphone. Or maybe I’ll do half tawky, half write-y posts.

Oh, yeah – one more thing. I added a widget to follow/subscribe to this blog via email in the footer (I hate sidebars) and like 4 people have already signed up – how cool is that? Okay, two of those people are my friends but still – fun.

It’s 4:30-ish in the afternoon and for some strange reason I am feeling a little whacky – Goofball time! I guess I’ll go annoy my husband since I’m just about done here annoying you –

    1. Yeah, I wander from my ‘office’ into the living room (where my husband is) and make odd pronouncements, grab some more M&Ms from the kitchen and wander back to my office. Poor husband – he looks up from his book and just stares at me –

    1. You know I only do the tawky thing for you, right? it cracks me up that you think I tawk funny – (Oh, I just saw the Amazon delivery truck come into the park lot – maybe my new mic is here!)

  1. I liked quotidian. My dad is obsessed with microfibre cloths. All of the ones I have are from him, because he decided that I needed them, even if I was too dimwitted to realize it.

    The song Jealous has won over another fan. My spazzy guinea pig Butternut was sitting with me while I was working on my jigsaw puzzle, and when that song came on, he decided it was time to lie down and get comfy, which he usually never does when he’s out of the cage. Maybe he’s gotten used to it because I have a tendency to play it on repeat.

    1. Quotidian is all I’ve got! Maybe you should write to the singer and tell him your guinea pig is a big fan πŸ˜‚ (Yeah, I listen to that song quite a bit myself. In the old days you could actually download songs off Youtube as MP3’s and you know, keep them for yourself – for free. Ah, for the good old days!)

  3. This is the first time I’ve ever heard the word quotidian. I think I like it. I have a few of the microfiber cloths but I’ve only used them for cleaning. I’ll have to pick one up for the shower.
    I’m thrilled to have your posts coming to my email. I think I was missing a lot of them on Facebook.

    1. Well thanks for subscribing! As for the cloths, I have them all over the house and use them for everything – wet and dry. One in the kitchen of course to wipe counter, stove, table – everything. One in each bathroom to, well, clean the bathroom things LOL I use them to wash the windows, and to damp-dust the furniture – holy cow there is nothing you can clean that a microfiber cloth isn’t going to clean better than a sponge – actually I have a microfiber sponge! Cleans and scrubs and then washes up so no smelly sponge. I should do a commercial for these things! Oddly enough, I was looking for new towels and microfiber bath towels are NOT a good idea it seems. The only downfall to these cloths is that you shouldn’t put them in the dryer – no biggie – they dry so fast I just put them back where they belong right from the washer!

    1. Some people would call them face cloths, or bath flannels or who knows what else – I’m sure in some countries/cultures they are not used at all…

      1. Face cloths I have heard before but not very often. And yes, I know for a fact that in some countries/cultures they are not used at all. Except me before wiping down the horse or maybe doing dishes. Lol
