J: Why are you cleaning the house? It’s just going to get dirty again in 5 dang minutes.
Me: If it gets dirty in 5 minutes, I am making YOU clean it up because you’re the only other one here right now and the house just does not dirty itself.
J: Yes it does. The house is sentient.
Me: Also…I don’t want it to look like we’re hoarders and/or homeless people who just moved into their first house ever and don’t know how to act.
J: Why? Is that a bad thing? It’s OK if we look homeless, right?
