Rachel came back from the main office this afternoon with the following story about our resident Queen of Clean:
As I was looking for more letterhead over at the main office today, I heard a big sigh come through the door first … then Will.
I chuckled and Will said, “I asked Marlene if she had seen Mom, and she said, ‘The last time I saw her she was headed out with a broom.’”
Will laughed and said loudly, “AND IT’S JUST APRIL!”
As I was leaving the office I noticed Will had found Mrs. Koch. I thought, “Oh that’s nice, they are going to lunch together.”
But wait, she was just showing him the door leading out of the main office. She was so proud … she cleaned all the metal on the door and it was shining beautifully.
That door had been bothering her all winter.
Will and I just stood there for a moment and Mrs. Koch said, “You don’t remember what it looked like before do you?”
Nope, we sure didn’t.
She went on to explain it had a lot of black grimy stuff on it and was disgusting. But now, it gleamed like new.
Will shook his head.
“Oh, great! Now we have to paint the door.”
