What is the purpose of dirty laundry? Is it simply to keep us busy 24/7? I’ll never understand how, after spending all day washing and folding, that the very next morning the laundry bin is overflowing again. There must be a Laundry Fairy. She comes in the middle of the night while we’re asleep, but instead of leaving money like the precious Tooth Fairy, she whips up with her wand piles of dirty clothes. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
