Story 16. The Clean-Up

After every party you have to clean up. So, when Pinky's Birthday party is over her granny says:

"Look! The house is so untidy. We need to tidy up".

Pinky is very kind and wants to help us.

"I will wash the dishes" – she says and takes all the plates and cups.

"And I will sweep the floor" – I take a broom and start sweeping the floor.

Pinky's granny puts the food and drinks into the fridge and cleans the table, and then she starts dusting. When I finish sweeping I take a cloth and mop the floor. The floor is wet now and I don't let anybody step on it until it is dry. I say:

"Be careful! The floor is wet."

But Pinky is naughty – she tries to step on the wet floor and dance on it. In a second she slips and we all start laughing. Her granny says:

"Oh, dear. Stop fooling around and better water the flowers".

So Pinky starts watering the flowers. I take a vacuum cleaner and start vacuuming the carpet. And granny takes out all the rubbish. Now the house is clean and tidy. Pinky says:

"Thank you for the party and for your help."

"You are welcome, dear" – answers her granny.

And I say:

"You know, sometimes the clean-up after party can be as fun as the party itself".
