The dirtiness factor …

When does your room become so dirty, that it actually turns into a feature of that place ?

When your mom gives up asking you to clean it and vows never to talk about it … ever …
When the maid starts charging extra, just to enter and clean your room ?
When ?

Anyways, I’ve got a normal room here …
Lets see … one cupboard, a study table ( which is never used nowadays ), one computer table ( which is as dusty as it can be ), one bed, two chairs ( I stole one chair from my dad’s room ) and quite a few boxes here and there containing stuff, I mostly will never open again …

You remember, the only time you “actually” clean your room is when your friends come over … for the first time ?
The first thing you’d probably hear is how “clean” your room looks …
Then you go something like … “Nah … I just did it today because you guys were coming over”

As more people stream into your room and compliment you on your “cleanliness”, “cleanliness” doesn’t remain a compliment any longer …
It seems more like a guilt, for a crime which you committed …
So, next time they come … they get to see what your room “actually” looks like …
And they feel better … and you become one of the tribe …

And then there is the “switcheroo”
We guys do it so often, that we have even come up a term for it …

Switcheroo /vb/ : The act of transferring clothes from one location to another, on the arrival of entities in your room, so as to make more space for people to fit in ..

Now, my room is not that bad … atleast comparing to stuff you see on US Television …
You can easily walk into the room … and you can probably sit somewhere too, once I have performed the Switcheroo …
But my mom kinda gave up on asking me to clean it sometime ago …

Rooms never stay clean ( or do they, and I am missing something here ? ), so the thought of cleaning it, is just in the back of my memory … somewhere …

But that great pile of clothes on the chair besides me, has started to give me the shivers …
Hence this blog, and maybe … just maybe … I’ll venture into that dimentia … the room cleaning one …

If that ever happens, I’ll update all you people …
Then we could probably have a party or something … :)
