Daily Prompt: What’s the household task you most dislike doing? Why do you think that is — is it the task itself, or something more?
This one has to be cleaning the fish tank. I don’t exactly hate it but it’s the task that I most dislike. Our goldfish, (Comet and Asteroid), are a little bit too big for the net I fish them out with, so they enjoy flapping around and absolutely soaking me when I try to manoeuvre them into another bowl – although I don’t really blame them! And once that is done, it’s the process of heaving the fish tank from the living room and into the kitchen, then pouring the water down the sink and watching it slosh over the sides and onto my socks. The bit in between is actually fine. Then it’s right back to carrying the tank into the living room again and dripping the water onto the carpet.
The worst feeling ever? When water dribbles up your sleeves.
