Friday night laundry

by Radio Somewhere

Someone else in my building is doing laundry on a Friday night! Rather odd. Usually, I would have the laundry facilities to myself. Must be someone with plans for tonight but no clean clothes to wear.

I, on the other hand, have no Friday night plans other than laundry — although I will try to post to my blog in time to put the clothes in the dryer.

I like to do laundry on Friday because: I don’t have to do it on Sunday; I don’t have to do it on Sunday; and, I don’t have to do it on Sunday.

Over the years, I’ve learned to desynchronize myself from the rest of the human race whenever possible. I don’t go to dinner on Thursday or breakfast on weekends. I don’t travel at Christmas or Thanksgiving.

And I try never to arrive at a coffee shop at the top or bottom of the hour, because people always pick even times to meet each other, e.g., 10:00 or 10:30. No one ever suggests meeting at 10:19 — which is why the counter is usually not busy at that time.

It’s also nice to have clean clothes for Saturday!
