We were discussing Christmas gift ideas when she mentioned that somebody could always give her another laundry basket so that she would never have to put laundry away again.
I looked at her puzzled.
She said, “What?! I have an entire laundry system!
“There’s the very dirty that I can wear maybe one more time,
“And the semi-dirty that I can wear a couple more times,
“And the kinda clean that I can wear a few more times,
“And the totally clean that I haven’t worn since I washed clothes the last time.”
“Oh – and then there’s my hoodies – I never wash them.”
I shake my head in disbelief and ask,”These are all in one basket?”
“Oh yeah. But I know where every pile is. I have a system, mom.”
I shake my head in disbelief.
She went on, “Well, except for my work clothes, they usually have blood or vomit on them so I wash those right away.”
Wow. I’m glad for that.
So – if all of her clothes are kept in a laundry basket on the floor – just what can be found in her dressers?
Wait. Strike that. I don’t really want to know.
