    LOL – is it original?

    Preferable to meeting visitors at the gate with: “I’m so sorry, I inadvertently burned the house down.”

      No, first used sometime in the mid to late 1800s I think. Orginal meaning had more to do with washing children’s faces rather briskly and firmly and then deep cleaning, and of late, although rarely used, used more and more in relation to that kind of cleaning in which I excel.

    We grew up saying this word and now my children know and use it. So what does that reveal about me??!!! 😁

    My husband and I always say we need company every couple of weeks or so in order to keep the house clean.
