I bought each of the offspring a pair of these lovely (dustmop) slippers and (dustmop) gloves.
Do you think they were appreciative? Hell, no! They accused ME of trying to get THEM to do my housework! HA! They just won't let me forget about those few (hundred) times I strapped little scrub brushes to their feet and let them loose on the kitchen floor. Besides
I prefer to think I'm "grooming them for the future".
