so it begins

Monday January 8, 2007

Mom says, “What’s wrong?”

I say, “Well, Jake did my laundry today.”

Mom says, “That is so sweet. So did he ruin some of your clothes?”

I say, “Well, he washed a shirt that was Dry Clean Only. He didn’t read the label.”

Mom says, “Oh no. It took your father a long time to start reading labels. Finally, I just said don’t touch my clothes.”

Mom says, “And so it begins.”

    Yes, living with boys is dangerous — for your clothes!

  2. Scott says:

    Not saying that Jake did this, but I have known guys that have decided to screw up the laundry a few times so they would not have to do it anymore…


  3. Marissa says:

    That’s really cute–at least he tried.:)

  4. Matt says:

    I would recommend getting Jake a pull-up bar so he stops searching for reasons to go downstairs to the makeshift one in the basement. In general I would just try to keep him as close to his computer as possible, for as long as possible.

  5. Teresa says:

    Hide the dry clean only stuff in a separate area of the closet or drawers or something. Laundry is a chore best shared.
