Note: This started out as a post that tried to be really deep about how household chores will always be part of the human condition and modern technology makes them easier in that we have machines to help and such but also makes things harder because we have so many possible ways to distract ourselves and we're used to comfortable lives, etc. However, it ended up sounding too dumb for publication so I erased it all (I know...I know...so many posts you've seen on this blog have been too dumb for publication, and why would I have this sudden change of heart? Well, the answer is this: I don't want to talk about dumb past posts, forget about them and I'll try to do the same). I instead wrote a short little useless post under the same post title. It went like this:

I like: laundry, mowing the lawn, general tidying, taking out the trash, cleaning the litter box.

I do not like: dishes, cleaning anything in the bathroom, floors (vacuuming/mopping/sweeping).

A couple times a month, things get so bad that: Every time I walk into the kitchen, I am faced with the question: "Do I do the dishes or just kill myself?" I seriously weigh the pros and cons of each option. I decide to decide later. This means they pile up further. I generally go with the former eventually, but it's a tough internal struggle.

Note: I realize that I have over-used colons in this post. I don't care; it is definitely my favorite punctuation mark. So much promise follows a colon. And including one often means a sentence ends up less wordy than it has to be. And colons sometimes mean lists, which I also like.
