CHORES: the regular or daily light work of a household, routine tasks or jobs, difficult or disagreeable tasks
I see that you are having a pledge drive.
In years past, I have given joyfully in response to the services I have received. You provided me a chance to shower when my children were young and for that you will always have my gratitude. But this year, my check comes with some strings attached.
My kids are getting old enough for chores and I’m in need of some help around the house. But, it’s hard to sell “with age comes responsibility” to children. I could use your assistance marketing chores as a normal part of life and childhood. Please talk to your writers and suggest more chore-oriented story segments:
- Oscar could sort out recycling.
- Elmo could wash the crayon markings off the walls and furniture.
- The Kratts brothers could wash the laundry from their frequent power suit changes.
I’ve got a check with your name on it stamped and waiting. I’ll put it in the mail the moment I see Emily Elizabeth joyfully shoveling a Clifford-sized pile of steaming poop.
