LOL. I can totally relate to CARPERPETUATION. I do that all the time.:P I just know my vacuum will be able to suck up that string if I pick it up and put it back down again! Ha ha. I actually do a lot of those. I also happen to be AQUADEXTROUS...who knew there was a word for me?!:P My mom just always called me 'Monkey Toes'. ha ha. This was really funny. Thanks for making me laugh.:)
