Drabble: Kitchen Cleaning

Kitchen Cleaning

“You touched it?”

“What else would one do? Just pretend it wasn’t there till it went away?”

“You could have at least worn gloves.”

“Or poked it with something,” piped in one of the kids.

“Well, I didn’t have gloves, and I wanted to get it out of there.”

“So what happened then?”

“Well, it was halfway out from under the oven when it started to fight back.”

“You’re joking.”

“Nope, I wrestled the thing for about three minutes before it slipped my grasp and pulled back in there.”

“And you’re just going to leave it?”

"Live and let live.”
