Scurryfunge


Scurryfunge (SKUR-ee-funge) Verb: -To rush around cleaning when company is on their way over. -A hasty tidying of the house between the time you see a neighbor and the time she knocks on the door. From Scurry - an abbreviation of hurry-scurry, reduplication of hurry. Used in a sentence: “If it weren’t for the occasional scurryfunge, my house would never get cleaned.” We’ve all done it. Some friends call to ask if it's okay if they drop by for a visit so you immediately launch into action! You do your best to make the place look as presentable as possible. Start by throwing EVERYTHING in the closet! (Wait, where's my cat?) Then vacuum as fast as you can and finish off by throwing the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, whatever doesn't fit goes in the rubbish bin. And just as you finish, breathing heavily, covered in sweat, your guests call and ask if tomorrow would be okay instead.
