What dirt?

I am getting a call from my boss.

You asked me to do it? When??

I wanted to do it but I couldn't find the broom.

Why don't you tell the maid to do it? We pay her enough.

I keep the clothes there for a reason. Leave them alone.

Why do we need to clean the fridge every six months?

The house is completely fine. Come let's watch the game.

I think my stomach is upset again.

I think you should do it because I won't do as good a job as you.

I like the messy look; our home needs to look lived in.
