After putting the baby to bed, I decided to go down to do some "swiffering". I go into the closet, take out the swiffer and rummage around for the swiffer refills.
Hubby: I wish we had a walis [broom].
Me: Ha ? Walis ? What do you mean ?
Hubby: The kind that we have in the Philippines.
Me: You mean, the walis-tambo ? [You can check out a picture at this link.]
Hubby: Yeah, a walis-tambo. Our floors will be so much cleaner if we had one of those.
Me: *smirking* It only works if you use it, you know. If someone would just take out this swiffer and push it around a few times,.. [then I lift up to show hubby the bottom of the swiffer]... see ? it does the job as well.
Hubby: I still think that a walis-tambo works better.
Me: If you promise to clean the floors (sweep) regularly, I'll buy you one.
Hubby: How & where will you buy it ?
Me: That's my problem. I'll hand-carry it all the way from Manila if I have to. So, do we have a deal ?
Hubby: [thinks hard] Swiffer na lang.
