Life in a Goldfish Bowl

Window Washer

One of the things on my growing list of things I don’t like about our flat is that we are overlooked by the big building across from us.  I love having such beautifully large windows, but man those oldies are such lookie loos!

Another thing that always bothered me was our window washer that always showed up at random times.  So I’d be sitting here in my pajamas eating breakfast and suddenly there’d be a man on a ladder outside our window, waving at me.  Umm… yes, good morning!

I was never so happy as the day he showed up in the new year with a brand new window washing system which allows him to use a brush on a long pole.  It startles the crap out of me, and the dogs, every time it appears in the window… but at least it doesn’t have eyes!

    Hehe. I know just what that is like. We had a window washer start using one of those things on the windows of our office. It was so funny seeing everyone’s reaction.

    That brush, alone in the window, that’s hilarious!
