I ‘heart’ Dust

Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
Before we too into the Dust descend;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer, and—sans End

Thank you Mr. Sand Storm. See I was sitting on my @$$ scratching my head wondering how I’m going to fill up the 20 min rest time I have tomorrow, when in you come and splash dust all over my room. Get up and dust you say with a smile. So thank you for being so concerned with my productiveness.

Ok, so that was sarcastic… scratch everything I said above…me so sorry Mr Dust…didn’t mean to be sarcastic.

Ok, here’s the thing–on my last birthday I made a promise to myself that from now on I would always see the bright side of things, the good intention of others, the positive long term outcome of things. And I had successfully kept this promise till now that is…now that I offended Mr. Dust.

So to reprimand things, here’s my Top 10 Reasons Why Dust is a GOOD Thing:

1. When I dust, I have a lot of hand movements which means I burn a lot of calories, so basically dusting actually helps me stay in shape.

2. Dusting also helps me save money on gym membership fees.

3. When I dust I have to listen to music, so dusting helps me brush up on my dancing skills.

4. They say that dust is composed primarily of dead skin cells. So I guess this includes deceased people, which I guess includes my deceased ancestors. So basically I connect with my ancestors every time I dust.

5. I also build a close relationship with my household appliance every time I dust. I mean I’m touching them all over and touching always leads to intimacy.

6. I don’t know why every time I dust or vacuum I find lots of lost items…hmmm

7. Dusty days kinda look romantic. Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether it’s dusty or foggy. I love foggy days 😀

8. Dusty days help mask manufacturing companies increase their sales.

And the number one reason why I like dust:

9. Add a sprinkle of water onto dust and you are in an aroma therapy session

Ok, that was nice…now I feel better…life is beautiful again now that I have made my peace with dust.

  1. looooooool @ the aroma therapy…btw its not romantic in anyway! I just hate dust and there is no good side about it except clean clean n clean 🙂

  2. skinny bumblebee: Yes, dust of all things…see how positive i have become 😀

    amu: that aroma thing was the only non-sarcastic point 😀

  3. I guess u have adopted one of newtons law which says every action leads to positive reaction or something like that 😀

  4. >>on my last birthday I made a promise to myself that from now on I would always see the bright side of things, the good intention of others, the positive long term outcome of things.

    easier said than done!! believe me…

  5. amu: oooh boy…u r taking me back to high school physics class :D…didn’t that dude say for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction?

    falatan: aaaahhhh yes, rain and dust hmmmmmm

    ihamad: *smiles at the meaning behind this short yet powerful sentence*
    I’m gonna stop dusting, coz i don’t wanna dut my memories away 😀

    rieaane: look at it as fog 😀

    didi: i believe you…it took me a long time…actually very looong time, but i think these days automatically i do look at the bright side of MOST things. That’s why i am happier than those bleak days that i was suspicious of everyone.
