My public-service announcement for the day. Have a messy, cluttered, desk? Don't know where to start?

There's GOT to be a better way, right? The shuffling and sorting...the shredding and discarding...the saving and filing....it's all just SO HARD!
My new method is super easy, takes just microseconds, and is guaranteed to rip an obscenity from your lips in front of your young, impressionable children who will most likely repeat it in a. Sunday school b. a homeschool gathering c. carpool.
The secret? Just tip a lava-hot cup of black coffee over the whole shebang! You've never cleared a desk so fast. Ever!

Oh, dear God, let this day get better.

Poor Gretchen. At *least* it didn't spill on top of one of your young, impressionable children. Hope the day gets better for you. :)

Been there, done that, destroyed the keyboard with it. : )

Look at the bright side--
1. Your desk clutter is now cleared.
2. Now your children won't be exposed to swear words for the first time on the playground with some child they don't know. Except now they will BE the child exposing others to these words... hmmm... well, at least your clutter is cleared.

roflmao (does it count as a curse if I just put the first letter?)

Ok, now that I'm done laughing - maybe I should invite you to Nebraska, give you a pot of coffee, and direct you where to spill...Hoping to get enough room cleared to get a tree up...

PS-- I saw on the Today show the other day--- they now make a keyboard that is completely submerge-able (yeah, I know, I can't spell that word). So the whole coffee on the keyboard is no longer an issue; you can just wash it off. Maybe a good investment if you plan on repeating said desk-clearing method.

It should be noted (while we're looking on the bright side, Little Miss Pollyanna) that the keyboard did not, in fact, get spilled upon. I have a wireless keyboard and I was sitting with my feet propped up and it on my lap.
Yay for bright sides!
