Too stupid to hang up laundry

Posted Tuesday, August 24, 2010, at 3:08 PM

As if I wasn't feeling old and creaky enough today after getting up at 6:45, when I started to hang up the load of laundry I had fluffed for the 3rd time (whose with me on the fluff process? Damp towel...start the dryer again and vow to hang them up this time before they wrinkle again...Al Gore hates me...all that wasted energy...tough cookies Al.) it took me several tries to finally decide if my son's shirt was right side out or wrong side out. Now that is a good way to start your day with a bang...too stupid to hang up a shirt. I started laughing and which made me feel much better about my lack of fashion savvy. In my defense the shirt is made wrong side out intentionally...plus all the lettering on it is faded and looks about 50 years old. What's with these kids today?

I will spare you the rant about "if I made you wear clothes like that you would turn me in for child abuse"...but really? Then my mind slid back to the 1970's (that happens a lot) when we would take a perfectly good pair of blue jeans and fray out the bottom about 3 inches and sew all kinds of patches and such on them..unfortunately I still remember my mother saying to me" if I made you wear clothes that looked like that"...oh wait, there was no such thing as reporting your parents for child abuse back then. Hmmmm anyway...
