An Early Morning Conversation with Mags

Me: "I'm going to vacuum under the table real quick. Could you please help me by pulling the chairs out?"
Mags: "Sure."
Me: "Thanks." (vacuum starts up with a roar)
Me: (shuts off vacuum) "What? What's the matter?"
Mags: "If you vacuum under here, how will I remember what I ate all week? See? There's my Honey Nut Cheerios. There's my taco. Right there is my toaster strudel and there's Daddy's stir fry he made." 
Me: "You could take a picture with the iPad of the smorgasbord under here."
Mags: "Great idea. Hold on one moment, my dearest Mama."
Me: (waits)
Mags: (returns with iPad, aims it under the table) "OH! What's that? RIGHT THERE!" (pointing
Me: "I don't know, it's all looks disgusting to me."
Mags: "Well, I don't know what THAT piece is, but I'm pretty sure I didn't like that one." (snaps picture
Me: "All set?"
Mags: "Yep. Done capturing some memories."
Me: "That picture is definitely not going to show and tell."

Anybody else have a four day pile up of food under their table? It looks like a few unassuming crumbs at first, and then...dun dun dun!  They coagulate to form the dreaded "FOOD BUNNIES." Much like their cousins, the "DUST BUNNIES," they can take over the floor under a dinner table in a matter of days. 

I've even heard of a dangerous new hybrid of "HOUSE BUNNIES." I think it may be an urban legend...much like spiders nesting in a person's hair. Supposedly, these bottom floor dwellers join forces to form a dust/food bunny hybrid under your fridge and stove. Keep your eyes out, people. And approach with caution. 



  1. Lol...I have my own child/husband made buffet under our table (just in the spots where hubs and child sit) and it's on carpet. God only knows what lurks deep in those threads of carpet string. The thought is terrifying. And those hybrids you speak of, I have seen them and it is enough to keep a grown woman up at night. ;)

  2. This is awesome! I shudder to think what is under Joe's booster seat. Perhaps you should get a dog to help with the "leftovers." Just a thought.

  3. LMBO! Too funny...fortunately my OCD prevents any of these moments lasting more than an hour or two but I have found some interesting things under the kitchen table. "WHEN did we eat THAT?!?!?!" :D
