How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie roll pop?
For those of you trying to make me feel old by claiming not to remember this commercial with the cute owl - bite the sucker.
The point of the commercial was that the Tootsie roll center was too irresistible to wait to count the number of licks and everyone bites into it.
And so, we will never know.
We will also never know how many days the people in my house will continue to use the toilet despite how gross it becomes. Or how many days they will use the sink when it has toothpaste globbed in numerous places.
We will never know because even though they can continue to use the bathroom when it's well past it's "due to be cleaned date" I cannot resist.
I can't resist cleaning the bathroom. Oh it's not a Tootsie roll kind of irresistibility, in fact the Tootsie roll bathroom analogy is a little disturbing now that I think about it. But I refuse, refuse to use a gross bathroom and thus I clean it.
We will never know how long my husband and children will use the bathroom and we will never know how many licks will get you to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop. Great Mysteries.
