More with the Oppressive Neatness
Miss M: Wasn’t that funny how H.’s mother said everything in our house was like Martha Stewart’s?
500Jerk: She did? What do you think she meant by that?
Miss M: Umm, you know, that our house is so . . . orderly.
Miss M: Yeah, orderly. You know, Mom, in some houses kids are actually allowed to touch the walls. Like put their whole hands on the walls and their parents don't freak out.
500Jerk: They are? Why would anyone do that? It messes up the paint. It should not happen. Ever!
Miss M: See? ORDERLY.
