This morning I discovered on my bathroom mat a six-inch long greenish blackish piece of string. It looks like it came from a mop. The only trouble is, we don't have a mop. We use a Swiffer. (See mini-review below.) Do you think someone has snuck into my house to mop my floors? If so, thank you! Um, you missed a spot. Hell, you missed the floor.

I can't think what else this string might be. I'm afraid to pick it up for closer inspection. This, I fear, will remain a mystery.

[Mini-review of Swiffer: As promised, very very convenient. Refill squirty stuff lasts through about three Saturdays and is on the expensive side. Will not, however, get your floors anything resembling clean.

Me: I thought you were going to mop today?!

Zachary (pissed): I did.

In conclusion, don't buy the Swiffer.]

Mystery string . . . we may never know it's origin,
or how it arrived. But there it is . . . .

Swiffer: Blue liquid doen't smell offensive, and battery powered dispenser makes a cool noise.
Other than that, you were correct in summarizing-
doesn't "clean" as much as it will push dirt into a small area for manual pickup, and will leave a nice,
filmy deposit over the areas just swiffed. JK
