I had my blog for January all written, but I when I saw this Dave Barry post on my monthly calendar, I had to share it. In this post, he makes a case on how much "cleaner" a bachelor is than a good housekeeper. Enjoy!
"There was an article that appeared recently in the New York Times, concerning household cleanliness. The article stated that your kitchen--yes, YOUR kitchen--is basically a festering swarm of potentially deadly bacteria. The most interesting part of the article concerns a discovery by a University of Arizona microbiology professor names Dr.Chuck Gerba. He has found that people who had the cleanest-looking kitchens were often the dirtiest. Because "clean" people wipe up so much, they often end up spreading bacteria all over the place. The cleanest kitchens, he said, were in the homes of bachelors, who never wiped up and just put their dirty dishes in the sink. That's right: You so-called "good housekeepers" with your so-called "cleaning" are in fact smearing bacteria around, while we so-called "slobs" are, by courageous inaction, making the world's kitchens safer for everybody. There is no need to thank us. All we ask is a little respect."
Me again: Ha! Do you agree?
