The Mountain and a Friendly Laundry Tip

You know how it goes. Clothes get dirty. You wash them. You dry them. And then you leave them on the dryer. To pile up. Higher and higher. And you start rummaging through the pile, trying to retrieve the clean underwear, only to discover that the pile starts to topple over. The clean clothes get mixed up with the dirty clothes, and you certainly don’t want to rewash clean clothes. And you realize there is. No. More. Clean. Underwear. You decide that it is easier to go to the store to buy your child a pack of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle underwear, instead of rummaging and toppling.

Because sometimes the act of folding a mountain of laundry is unsurmountable.

Someone once offered me a friendly tip: “Why don’t you fold as you go? That’s what I do.” As in, fold the laundry as soon as it comes out of the dryer. Wow, genius!

My friendly tip: when the mountain gets too high, go shopping.

Or do what my wonderful husband does. Wash, dry, take to guest room, pile on guest bed. It ensures that you will NEVER have guests, because no one wants to sleep on a mountain of clean, unfolded and rapidly wrinkling clothes. I’m gonna need a sherpa to scale that mountain soon, I need clean underpantythings.

Hmmmm. That’s a great way to avoid guests. Genius, really.
