I'd rather wash floors

We were sorting household chores when the girls started fighting about who had to vacuum. I completely understand how much they hate to vacuum. I hate it too.


It's not that vacuuming is hard. It's just that we do it nearly every day. It's one of those things that needs to be done nearly daily to prevent Holly hair tumbleweeds from taking over. I always tell Holly it's a good thing she loves the girls so much because it almost makes up for the work her constantly shedding hair causes.


The girls started trading chores until it became clear that the blond twin was going to end up vacuuming. I said, "It's not that bad. You'll survive."


She spun around, looked me straight in the eyes and said, "I'd rather wash floors." So she did was the floors and I vacuumed. We were both happy.
