Little Known Facts

One of my co-workers, a bit of a germ freak, has three bottles of spray cleaner at his desk: Windex Antibacterial, 409, and Fabulous. Yes, Fabulous. Not Fantastik, Fabulous. He apparently bought it at some discount or dollar store. It looks like any other spray cleaner, with its white bottle and green label, except Fabulous has the words “Con Blanqueador” scrawled across the bottom.

The first time I was handed the bottle of Fabulous, I asked, “Blanqueador? Isn’t that what gave all the Indians smallpox?”

No one got it.
