I'm looking for a question about housework January 1, 2014 4:27 PM   Subscribe

or chores, or cleaning - where at least one of the commentors said that s/he likes to pretend to be Cinderella (or some other fantasy character with an evil bossy nemesis), so that s/he can attack her (probably "her") work with the feeling of high moral superiority and amused martyrdomship. Does this ring any bells? I have a new question to ask about pretending as a (or pretending to be) grown up and want to reference that, because it seemed to say it better than I could. (Also, may be same thread or not, but someone went around smiting the housework - that thread too, please). I did search, but apparently I'm much better at finding obscure academic articles.

I thought it might be this... but it's your own comment so maybe not?

Oh surely not me! But I couldn't even find that, so well done you. Maybe I imagined it.

I don't have time to look up the reference, but this reminds me a lot of Allie Brosh, pretending to be an adult and Cleaning All The Things.

OK, here's the link to Hyperbole and a Half.

By smiting the housework, do you mean Cold Lurkey's comment in this thread about cleaning the floor with a bird perched on their shoulder going "Pew pew pew"?
