Well, maybe not all the time.
Actually, it’s probably more like a small percentage of the time.

Here’s the thing. I could make her clean it up right now, or I give her a few more minutes to
wallow in filth enjoy her mess. You know what? These are the fun years. The messes that she makes (and the pictures that I’m able to capture) are memories for us. I’ll look back on nights like these, nights when every single thing is out of the toy box, and all I’ll remember is this:
Guess who else gets that messes make memories? Clorox gets it. They want to show us how to laugh through the ick with a first of it’s kind digital event! Clorox and famed improv group, The Second City Communications, are teaming up for the first ever Clorox Ick Awards, a live interactive experience celebrating life’s ickiest (and funniest) moments.
The Clorox Ick Awards is your “reality” award show, honoring those situations and experiences that we can all relate to. Your real-life, real-time submissions will inspire The Second City Communications’ icky improv sketches, which will be shared live on Twitter Wednesday, April 9 from 6 – 10 p.m. ET.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Laugh through the mess with the Clorox Ick Awards on Wednesday, April 9 from 6-10 p.m ET. Join the conversation, share your Ick Awards nominations, win prizes and watch The Second City Communications’ hilariously icky sketches on Twitter using #Ickies.
