A blog about laundry

Davey: I guess I'll do some laundry today.

Me, surfing Facebook: Mmmmm...

Davey: Do you think you could write a blog about laundry?

Me: Well, I guess I could, but it would be boring.

Davey: Like doing laundry.

Part of the reason there's so much laundry is because Portey keeps stealing the kitchen towels off the towel bar. He never chews them, just races around the house with them until someone yells and takes them away.

I've discovered a way to stop that attention-seeking behavior. You know those big binder clips, useful for long manuscripts and reports?

I was actually standing there watching him this morning, and he reached up and grabbed the red hand towel. Boy, was he surprised when it didn't come down.

You party pooper, you... :(
ˌinjəˈn(y)oo itē/ 1. the quality of being clever, original, and inventive.

There will no longer be 12 kitchen towels a day in the laundry.
