Well, we got a new washing machine, and yes, Mrs. G, it is indeed one of those fancy-schmancy front loaders. To be honest, I wanted this new washing machine to perhaps induce some sort of enthusiasm on my part for the doing of laundry. I was hoping that having a really nice, new machine that washes my clothes fabulously (which it does, I would highly recommend the Maytag Neptune to anybody) would somehow change my loathing and dread.
But, to hardly anyone's suprise, it didn't.
Although we did shop at a warehouse store that happened to also be selling pay washing machines, the kind that are in laundromats. I pointed them out to the very bored Mr. P, who was enthralled at the idea of inserting four quarters every time we want to wash our clothes. "Let's get this, Mommy! Please, can we get this one?" I laughed and said, "And pay myself every time to do the wash? I don't think so!"
Then I got to thinking, and it might actually not be a bad idea. I mean, we could have a "laundry fund" wherein I save all the quarters and we use the money to go on vacation or something. Whaddaya think?
And in a laundry-related video, I present this gem from David Bowie. I had thought of doing "Blue Jean" instead, but I've always liked "Fashion" better. Beep beep!
