Mrs Wug: What shall we talk about this week?...I know...Laundry! Especially 'folding' of laundry. It's an issue. O_0
Mr. Wug: An issue for who?!
Mrs. Wug: An issue for 'us'!
Mr. Wug: Okay...the issue is we both fold laundry different ways. You have to be 'prim and proper' and I like to roll it up and stuff it in the drawer! Plain and simple....I'm a simple man. :-)
Mrs. Wug: I wouldn't be saying that too loud if I was you...about the simple part. LOL But be that as it may, how dare you call my folding methods 'prim and proper'! I prefer to think of it as simply PROPER...period! :-]
Mr. Wug: Whoever heard of folding a washcloth a third one way, a third the other way, and then in half?! It seems like a lot of folding! I want my fellow men bloggers to chime in. I'm sure they would agree that a washcloth should be folded a half one way, and a half again, and you're done! You save a step! :-))
Mrs. Wug: Okay, let's talk about this from two directions. Number one...a washcloth folded your way is gonna take up more room in the drawer...that is, if you can actually get it 'in' the drawer in the first place! I mean...you've got so much stuff in there now......
Mr. Wug: What are you trying to say?!
Mrs. Wug: I'm trying to say that the 'Stuff and Go' method doesn't work for laundry!! That works for those ridiculously huge sandwiches that you make, but not for laundry!! Laundry in the drawer is not suppose to be in there saying to each other: "Move over!"..."No, you move over!"..."Hey! Get your corner outta my side!"..."Watch out! He's coming! Hold on to the side of the drawer because when he snatches this drawer open we're all gonna fly out!!" LOL
Mr. Wug: What?...Now you got the laundry talking to each other?! ^_^ Okay...so you're gonna go there!...In that case, my laundry says this: "There's a party going on around here!'..."I wonder whose coming next!"..."This is exciting!'..."Don't you love being in with the crowd!?" ^_^
Mrs. Wug: Oh Boy!...*shaking my head*...Let's move on!...Number two: When the laundry is folded my way and put on the open shelf in the bathroom where everyone can see it, it looks prettier. It doesn't have open flaps hanging out like yours does. It just has a rounded, neat, pretty look, and the design is sitting just in the right spot!...
...You could take pictures for 'Better Homes and Gardens' in my bathroom if they're folded like I fold them!!
Mr. Wug: What?! Did you get a phone call I didn't hear about?! Is 'Better Homes and Gardens coming over here with a photographer?! O_O Should I get out my properly folded apron and put it on and act like Martha Stewart?..."Welcome to our humble abode!" ^_^
Mrs. Wug: Now you're just being silly. Why would you be wearing an apron?!
Mr. Wug: Why indeed!
Mrs. Wug: Anyway...as I was saying, you and I are the only two who live in this house, but we do have guests sometimes. What do we want them to think about us...that we're really homeless people, pretending to live inside? And that we have no 'couth'?!...Or that we might be letting our guests use unclean toiletries?...because folded the way you fold them they look like somebody's been rolling them around on the floor, playing with them!...And don't get me started about the way your shirts look when they come out of the drawer!
Mr. Wug: And that's why we got a steam dryer, so that I could just toss them in, press the cycle, and a few minutes later...Wallah!...They come out smooth as ice!
Mrs. Wug: Smooth as ice, huh?!...Well why do you sometimes look like 'Wrinkle Johnson' when you leave here to go to work!! LOL Apparently putting the shirts through the cycle takes time.....And that brings us right back to where we started. The clothes need to be folded up 'properly', and put in the drawer or hung up 'properly', so that they can be worn, without too much bother, whenever you get ready to put them on!
Mr. Wug: What can I say...haven't you noticed, the wrinkle look is in!
Mrs. Wug: Not in this house, it's not!...Take the time and fold the clothes properly please.
Mr. Wug: Okay...a third, a third, and a half. Oh boy!! O_0 Hmmm...maybe I'll get a feature in 'Better Homes and Gardens'! LOL
