I was visiting Jacki this morning and she challenged me to take a Neat Freak Quiz. I’ve posted my score as the post title (does this make any of you want to run away screaming?), and below is what the computer-generated answer said about me (my own comments in red).
Well you’re not Captain Cleanliness or anything, but you definitely don’t live in the presence of evil bacteria and dust bunnies. (No dust bunnies? Um, they breed like…well, like RABBITS around here! Pardon me while I get out the swiffer…) In other words, you like your living space to be neat and tidy (why yes, yes I do — sadly, very few people help me to keep it that way so there are days when I give up the fight), but you don’t go haywire with the cleaning agents and antibacterial sprays. Sure, you may leave dishes overnight rather than washing them after every use, but you definitely wouldn’t leave them for days! (Uh, are we talking about dirty dishes or rinsed-off dishes that need to be washed by hand in the sink?) Most things have their own space at your place — but like many households, you may have that miscellaneous “junk drawer” to keep items that don’t really belong anywhere. (I also have flat surfaces that are magnets for paper clutter. Very STRONG magnets.) Your home and work area at school or at your job can get a little messy occasionally (occasionally??) , but you rarely let it turn into absolute chaos. (These people have NOT been in my home lately. Trust me, the clutter monster has been projectile vomiting.) Just keep in mind that whether you like it or not, people will judge you by how clean you keep your home (OUCH), so make sure to leave a nice, lemony-fresh impression! (This message brought to you by SuperDad, who would like to come home to a nice, lemony-fresh impression.)
Well, folks, Evil Bacteria is not my problem (Big Relief there!!) but clearly, I did not do very well on the rest of the quiz. I now DARE you to take your own Neat Freak Quiz and let me know your score in the comment section!
