On the radio...

Tonight I heard an ad on the radio for some sort of air filtration system. And they told me the air inside my house was five times dirtier than the air outside. How can this be? I know we don't dust and vacuum as often as we should. But FIVE TIMES?!?!

And then I began to wonder...where do they get these numbers? Did the take an air sample from the house of the guy who lives next to the waste treatment facility? Or the house built on a toxic waste site? Or maybe they went directly to the cave of darkness and sucked an air sample right from satan's boudoir complete with smoke and particles of burning sulfur and brimstone?

But my house? We don't smoke. No one even uses aerosol hairspray or deodorant! It just can't be that dirty in here. It's gotta be safe to breathe...right?

Goodness! That's a creepy thought.
