The Item for Day8: Eight Maids a’Milking
The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
Mrs. Baxter called her eight maids to the foyer to discuss the pending visitor.
“Dylan will be here soon. He will show you how to properly use the new steamer on the curtains. Please listen to him and pay close attention.”
Just as Mrs. Baxter finished talking, the doorbell chimed. Mrs. Baxter opened the door and greeted Dylan.
Immediately upon seeing the hunk of man, one of the maids gasped, while the other maids giggled like school girls. Mrs. Baxter failed to mention that Dylan was attractive – very attractive.
After demonstrating how to use the steamer, Dylan asked the maids if they had any questions. To his surprise, eight hands were raised. Dylan ended up showing each maid – individually – how to use the steamer.
Watching from kitchen, Mrs. Baxter smiled and thought to herself, “I think those maids are a’milking it, just a little.”
