Cleaning Day

My parents are coming down for a visit, so we are frantically preparing the household for their arrival. Time to put away the illegal drugs and semi-automatic weapons, the seditious literature and satanic rock music — at least for a while.

We also have to conceal the extensive subterranean dungeon we installed during our renovation. Wouldn’t do for Mom & Dad to wander down there and get lost.

    Not that you might have any, but hide any & all the sex toys too. You don’t want to have to explain them and your parents don’t want you to anyway. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt and bumper sticker.

    “Playing with Persephone” sounds like a ready-made title for what I’m sure would be a most excellent autobiography, based on a speech I happened to hear over by City Hall last time I was in town.

    Imagine if “Persephone” were a street name, over by the Muse streets. It almost mangles itself into “PURSE-a-phone”!

    Is there such a thing as pomegranate-flavored baby food?
