Hairball Bunnies and Irritation

I spent 1/2 a day cleaning our bathroom. It wasn't that gross, but I cleaned everything. I cleaned out from under the sink, cleaned the walls, and the baseboards. Boyfriend even commented on how nice the bathroom looked and smelled (which is very uncharacteristic of him). I was so proud of myself. Something to write in my cookie jar journal.

So now, don't get me wrong. I know I am a part-time House Monkey. I know it is my job to clean up around the house. HOWEVER, I also know it is my job to go to work - just as much as he does. So is it really too much to demand ask for him to gather up all the hair he leaves all over the bathroom? It was in the shower, on the back of the toliet, on the sink, and on the floor. I understand he has long hair. I even understand that hair falls out. What I can't wrap my head around is how hard it must be for a man to bend over and gather all the hair and place it in the trash can that his House Monkey so lovingly placed beside the toliet. Right there. In plain site. Well within reach and I might add with a nice new shiny trash bag in it to collect all of the well - lets face it - hair.

I was so pissed irritated that I actually thought about gathering all of Boyfriend's hair and placing a nice big hairball on his computer keyboard. Maybe then when he went to type half asleep he would feel the hairball and magically begin to remember him to do this simple task that I have been asking  him to do for 2 years.

Then I had a thought. He knows exactly how to push my buttons. He knows exactly how to extract his revenge... An image ran through my head - with full sound and color. I could see Boyfriend, with a smirk of satisifaction on his face, fashioning tiny rabbit ears and a bow on said hairball. He will then say that he has a new pet and named it George (or Billy or even worse HARRY) and would ask if I wanted to hold it. He would torture me with that hairball until I wanted to kill him.

Needless to say, the hair is still all over the bathroom. I will clean it up and bitch ask him to please remember to clean it up next time. I.AM.A.BADASS!

    The problem with cleaning the bathroom (or any other room, really) is that the second you stop, it immediately starts to get dirty again. That's why you should never clean. Because otherwise, the rooms win. And the only thing worse than a dirty room is a dirty room that gloats about winning.

    This brought me close to upchucking thinking of man hair.

    one time when i lived in a townhouse in DC our neighbors who smoked always dropped their butts on our common postage stamp of a front yard. i pretty much was the only one who cut the grass, so one time i was so fed up with them that i gather up a few dozen cigarette butts and placed them right in front of their door. he asked me about it a few days later and i told him with a straight face, looking him right in the eye that i figured if they wanted to hang onto their butts, that i would help them out.

    It is funny - after I told Boyfriend my plan he told me he would have tortured me with the hairball. My vision was right! I am totally a psychic now. I am starting a psychic network!

    I think I would like a hairball bunny. But I might wear gloves when touching him.
