I Launder Therefore I Am (entitled to a cocktail)

Shannon Day
Written by Shannon Day

One day last week, while reflectively mopping, I said to my husband:

“I feel like I need more purpose in my life…”

My hubby, who’d just gotten out of the shower and was rummaging through his dresser drawers, replied:

I just need some socks…”

So there you have it: missing socks, a quest for purpose and a real-life example of a couple communicating.

So where do I go from here?  I could contemplate my need for purpose and deeper meaning in life but surely that’d be better done in a private journal.  I could assess communication within male/female relationships, but that’d be a massive topic and therefore more effectively explored in a book, entitled: Couple Talk: Absent Socks and the Meaning of Life (or maybe not).

I think I’ll turn my focus, instead, to the exhilarating subject of socks and the ever-so-important role of Launderer …

 

So, head on over to Martinis & Motherhood.  We promise you’ll feel less alone in all that laundering mayhem.  Plus, there’s a Dirty Laundry martini waiting for you over there.  After all, laundering goddesses, like us, are entitled to a tasty cocktail, right?! Click here.
