993 - Doing Spring Cleaning

April 25th, 2014

Episode 74 of 489 episodes

It’s that time of year again, when you have to clean and organize your house before summer. You can listen to this episode while you’re doing it. Slow dialog: 1:07 Explanations: 2:49 Fast dialog: 16:11 Malcolm: Do we really need to start doing spring cleaning today? Lorna: We really should. The drapes need to be washed, the walls need to be wiped down, and the attic needs cleaning out. And we really should clean the upholstery on the sofa and dining chairs. Malcolm: That’s a lot of work for two people. Lorna: And I haven’t even mentioned what needs to be done in the kitchen. We need to defrost the freezer, clean the oven, clean out the cabinets, and scrub the floors. Malcolm: I’m not sure I have the energy for all that. Lorna: We also need to wash the windows, window screens, and windowsills, steam clean the carpets, and sweep out the garage. Malcolm: If we hope to do all of that this weekend, then I think we need reinforcements. Lorna: What do you have in mind? Malcolm: I’m not the high school football coach for nothing. Lorna: You mean...? Malcolm: I think the guys need an extra hard workout this weekend. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
