Sometimes little challenges in life are annoying, embarrassing, and if they happen frequent enough, they become our lovely pet peeves (I think I wrote a post about pet peeves, oh yes, that’s right I did… after you read this post, you should head over and read that one… do you see how I was clever in bringing up an old post- the old ones need attention too ya know?! it’s screaming out “read me! please read me!” so click here when you’re done reading the rest of this awesomely, most cleverly, creatively post.) yup, made up some words to add more umph and power to the discription!
Being Clever Makes You Look Smart!
…And Who Doesn’t Want To Look Smart?!
Challenge #1: You’re late getting dressed for a date, so you throw on your amazing dress that hugs your body just right, when all of a sudden you start to walk, and dang it, you’ve got cling-attack… your dress now feels like it’s getting handsey as if it were a man desperately wanting to get lucky… no dress no! What can you do? well you could put on a different outfit, but hell no, you want to wear this one… run to the laundry room quick, grab a fabric-softner sheet and pat/rub it all over your dress (problem solved!) Wait! you don’t have a fabric-softener sheet, noooooo! hold on a minute… quick run to the closet, look for the wire hangers you hate to use on your clothes (hopefully you didn’t throw them all away) now run that wire over the surface and then underneath… it’s a static-defuser! woohoo! no more static and you’re ready for your date!
Challenge #2: Well you’re out and about with your beautiful most prized set of earrings on as you window shop… you spot an outfit that you think would look damn good on you and you want to try it on… you go in the store, into the fitting room, then put it on and ohhweee you look good, you even smile at yourself and for a brief moment act like you’re a professional model turn this way, turn that way, look at your backside, mmm-mm I look good! So you buy it and head out of the store, ohhh coffee shop, my lucky day! The cashier looks at you funny and says ‘um, one of your earrings is about to fall out’ you suddenly feel for both earrings and notice the one that’s about to fall out has no back clasp to secure it… Let’s face it, you’re not finding that little thing! you spot a pencil at the counter and ask to barrow it for a minute… when they’re busy making your drink you bite the eraser off and use it as a clasp instead (problem solved, you clever woman!)
Note: if you or your guy has these old school socks, you are AWESOME!
Challenge #3: You’re packing for a trip you’re about to embark upon and you’re bringing your fancy leather shoes, you don’t want to wear them during your travels, but you also don’t want them getting scuffed, scratched, and abused… what can you do? let’s see here… Ah, I have it! you take that thick winter sock (or gym sock) and you use it as a shoe protector, and after you wear the shoe the sock will add two useful functions… it will protect, not only, from nicks, but keep your clothes clean from the dirty soles… how nice! All you do is slip the shoe in the sock… it is said that a mans gym sock is larger and thicker, so go that route if you can, just make sure they’re clean, you don’t want man stinky sweat on your fabulous shoes! (problem solved)
Challenge #4: You’re having company over, you LOVE your dinner parties, they’re almost better than sex! ALMOST! You were planning on doing a quick cleaning before your company arrived… it’s 20 minutes until this fun-fest starts when your dog(s) jump on the couch and lose a pound of fur, oh what the heck man! the vacuum bag is full, plus your lint roller will take too long and won’t be efficient enough…What do you do? quick run, and I mean run good woman or man! bend down and open the cabinet (nice!…giggity!- just kidding!) now search for those rubber gloves… you found them, great! put one or both on and get them a little wet (just damp), quick run to the couch, gently wipe the gloves over the fur on the couch… amazing huh?! it’s coming off so nicely with no fur left behind! Now that you’re done go to the kitchen rinse them off and store away for next time… (problem solved).
Note: that is NOT my keyboard!
Challenge #5: Who here is a blogger, writer, or computer addict? you?! Oh great! ever wonder how dirty your keyboard is… if not, I bet you are now… hahaha! here’s how to clean your favorite electronic device. When you done reading this post AND the pet peeves post (can’t forget about that one!) turn off your computer, unplug it and throw it into the bathtub, oh wait that’s not for a computer, that’s for your kid… instead, grab a cotton swab lightly dip it into isopropyl alcohol and trace between the keys and ever so slightly on the buttons (eww, gross, it’s so dirty!) all done with that? nice! now you’ve got a clean sparkly keyboard… you can even clean the mouse! and for the people who have a mouse with a roll ball, you can take the bottom of the mouse off and go over the ball and interior so it functions better.
Now I could sit here and write more amazing and clever ideas to tackle life’s little annoyances, but we’re all busy people in this world, right?! so until next time folks, I’m sure I’ll write more of these awesome hacks in the near future, you’ll just have to come visit me at TwinCitiesView often to check out the latest!
