House Music


My daily life is mostly occupied with cleaning people's homes. Pointing at and exclaiming about the things that interests me in these places might be considered impolite so instead I have taken inspiration from this verbatim poem and composed my own list of names for the places I have visited over the last six months.



House with many wind apertures
House of hairy dolls
New baby, zombie lady house
Pants on floor house
House of love and frayed carpets
Sticky wall house
House with no place for bottom or cup of tea
House of many cushions
House where big man sleeps
House for lady in bunny suit
House like grandma’s
House where man consider ending life

  1. Hey Lulu! Okay, you had me here:

    "New baby, zombie lady house"

    Tho to be fair, "House for lady in bunny suit" is pretty intriguing too.

    I wonder what you'd call my place?

  2. "House with many wind apertures"

    I'm thinking something like this. Of course, that may be very, very wrong.

    From the house of dust bunnies!

    1. That's a cool place LX but the house of many wind apertures could also be called 'nearly falling down house'

  4. Lulu, I have missed you. Won't you visit my house one time? *grins*

    I must admit it is a rather interesting list. But then again, people are strange creatures. =)

  8. My parents ran a hotel when I was a child and my mother told me that guests were judged by the chambermaids, as a result of which I always leave hotel rooms immaculate. Home is home, though. I'd call it The Tip.

  11. A new post weeks ago and I am just finding it now? Sorry to be in so late here.

    I feel a short story coming on. Logline: "Insensate bourgeois householders employ cleaner, obviously slightly out of the ordinary, but not guessing that "cleaner" is actually a fairy sent to test them, as fairies so often are, and to bestow either a blessing or a curse and to fix them with a simple phrase."
