In honor of the 109th Congress, we’ve been counting down the top ten threats to the institution of marriage in the free world. Next on the list is an insidious threat that resides in a dark place in all of our homes: laundry.
Nothing gets my goat more than someone who puts his or her dirty laundry in the hamper inside out. As if putting away laundry isn’t bad enough, now I’ve got to turn it right side-out again? But even that is just a preview to the emotional explosion that erupts when I turn one of my wife’s shirts out, only to discover that it was right side in to begin with. I’m sure it’s a set up… to get me back for whining about the lack of “order” in our hamper.
