Whenever anyone visits my house, I feel a strong urge to clean like a banshee until my home is completely spotless and sterile. Even if said visitor is only walking through the house, I make sure to clean every room they may possibly encounter.
Don't lie... you do it too.
What strikes me as funny is that the person visiting your home probably has an equally messy home of their own. Yet, we feel the need to spend hours cleaning in an effort to avoid embarrassment or judgement.
Even though the visitor has no intention of judging you.
I'm not saying I'm going to stop cleaning my house for guests. I'm just coming out and admitting that it's stupid. It's a Monumental Timewaster. A Terrible Trivium.
