Clutter attack

May 24, 2008

To the editor:

Wow, is my bedroom a mess! I'm a 14-year-old girl with a lot of clothes, shoes and jewelry. It's a miracle that I can even find an outfit to wear in the morning.

I would just like to thank you for the information given in the Monday, May 19, article, "Clear the Clutter." I absolutely love the idea of getting a plain white trunk or bin and decorating it.

Maybe now I could finally find my left adidas flip flop in those jungles of clothes!

Nicole Bostick,
Lawrence

"thanks multi. breatharian:so, he just lives on 'hot air?' okay."Why do you think I offered you a position in my minion corps?

jonas, two points. yes, the use of the word "before" in the wrong place. I plead temporary insanity due to eating spicey pork rinds.

Gnome get points for creative thought! Caretakers, funny.Bozo, I'd never heard of breatharians before. Do I need to google this like the prairie squid TOB mentioned?gnome says;boozo has minians? do they wear little uniforms:do they have little shiney helmets?****Are all of snap's lemurs accounted for?(And how about their right feet?)

Actually, I'm a breatharian, so I have no need of food. This is how I can afford a staff of minions.If you're interested, you have all the qualifications to be a minion, though obviously you'd have to start at the very bottom, BG. You really should begin thinking about a career for yourself. Minionhood could be just what you're looking for.

I'm much too busy and important to clean my own room. I have a whole staff of minions who take care of that for me.--bozo,shhhhhhhhhhh! [whisper] don't tell bozo, those are actually the employees of ...his sanitarium. they also pat him on the head and set his meals in front of him three times a day.

I believe, as a public service, the LJWorld needs to get over to this young lady's home and take a "before" picture. then, later, an "after" picture. I also think nicole bostick is courageous for writing this letter and admitting her problem. we know, the first step in solving a problem is admitting that you have one!she could become a posterchild, and leader of a local support group here. would not have to be limited to teens. thanks for your example nicole, can I sign my wife up for your support group?

Now her parents have it in writing that she is going to clean her room. She can't get out of it now.

Well, since the LJW calls and checks the validity of every writer, Nicole must be for real. Pretty funny though. If I remember right, in the seventh grade, one of my kid's assignments was to clean their room completely. The school gave them an instruction sheet and a checklist. The parent had to sign the checklist attesting that everything was done. I wonder if they still do that?

I meant that totally in good fun, that was hilarious!Many know that by now. I guess you didn't see I was first refering to BP making me laugh too hard at his comment about co-dependant. Then I read yours and it got me laughing even harder.{8~D
