  1. I dunno what’s on your floor, or what meds you’re on, so Imma wish you well 🙂


  2. And this is exactly why we invented Stick Science.


  3. When in doubt, whack it with a magazine first.

    Sounds vaguely like vacuum science – run the vacuum over it – won’t pick up. Do it again – won’t pick up. Pick it up and look at it. Throw it back down in floor, run vacuum over it – won’t pick up. Sigh. Rinse, repeat.

    Lint, it was lint.


  6. Dear Sweet Mama has it exactly right – it’s just an offshoot of the vacuum thing! However, if I can’t identify something on the floor, I never get to step 12 – that is when I break out the vacuum cleaner to do the job – because if that sucker is alive, I don’t want to find out when it runs up my arm and into my hair!
