Folding Laundry Depresses Me

Yesterday afternoon I was folding a load of laundry. As I folded I got more and more depressed.

Don't get me wrong, I actually don't mind folding laundry! Really. I just hate putting it away. I digress.

So I was feeling really down and just generally feeling sorry for myself about the last few weeks (which i still need to tell you about but i'm too lazy to type it up. lame.) and it hit me.

Why am I so down folding laundry?

Every time I have to fold a pair of my underwear I get more sad.

Yep. My underwear depresses me.

Why?

Well, let me count the ways.

1. They're big.

2. I need new ones.

3. I don't want to call Omar the tent maker to get new ones.

4. They look like they survived an underwear bombing attempt.

5. They're big.

6. Did I mention they're big?

Seriously. Someone call Omar for me, 'kay? I've lost enough weight that I don't need the 10 person size tent underwear anymore...maybe down to an extra large pup tent??

For heaven's sake woman, buy yourself some new undies! Heaven knows you've earned them!

There are some adorable and comfy eco-friendly ones on http://theanimalrescuesite.com.

How you manage to keep your sense of humor with the month you've had is amazing! You have me cracking up! :o)

I had to click the Omar link to figure out what you were talking about. Did you read the second definition?? LOL!!!!

OOOOOOOO, Mimi! I don't mind folding clothes either but I HATE putting them away too!! I don't know why either.

AND!

You fold underwear, just like I do! I thought it was the most normal thing in the world to do... my friends and my family would give me queer looks. Why are you folding them-- you wear them UDNER your clothes and nobody can see them and and and and.... I'd like to give them a smack. I just do, thats all. It looks like I'm making an effort to be neat!

I have granny underpants myself. I don't understand women who wear thongs every single day. Don't you constantly feel like you have to pluck something out of your ass all the time? But then I discovered hi-leg underwear. They're NOT briefs, they're NOT granny underpants. They're just underwear with a longer arch on the side of the hips. Looks better than grannies, anyway.

Steph said...

Oh shoot! Hahaha.

I'm sporting the granny panties right now for obvious reasons. Matt laughed at me the other night. I gave him a go-to-hell look.

You are too funny.

I went to buy new underwear a few weeks ago and couldn't find any that I liked.

Maybe I should call Omar.

Ducky said...

Just do what I do....refuse to wear them! A whole new world of experiences!!

Stephanie McCall said...

I really, truly, honestly hope this makes your day. Or at least gives the 10 yr old boy inside of you a good laugh.

I finally broke down and bought new undies after Xmas. It was getting bad, girl. :D

Lady Jewels Diva® said...

Seriously! Oh my God, I just fold mine and throw them in their drawer, what's to get depressed about?

If you don't like them get new ones.

My last lot were a pack of ten for $10 from Kmart.

I am SOOOO glad I'm not the only one who despises putting clean clothes away. I pretty much just pull stuff out of the basket until I desperately need the basket to put the dirty stuff back in.
