Wayland, Mass. — The house is a mess, and I am not neatly dressed. I must clean the house, Eeek, there's a mouse. The house is all musty, Oh, no, my dress is all dusty. The party starts in an hour, I'll use all my housecleaning power. The punch and lunch are ready, Ugh, it tastes all bready. And here come my guests, Brother, what a mess.
