I volunteered to house a campaign staffer at my apartment until Super Tuesday. Yesterday the coordinator for staff housing called me to tell me that most likely a staffer would be coming on Wednesday.
"Oh good," I said. "That means I have time to clean my apartment."
She laughed. "Trust me, they're going to be at the campaign from 8:00 am to 11:00pm. You don't need to clean."
"But ... I know ... but ... I just can't have someone staying with me with a dirty kitchen!!!! Even if they don't step foot into the kitchen."
So there you have it. I may have absolved everyone else from housecleaning, but myself? Not so much.
