I'm Doing Laundry on a Monday

For the past five years I've enjoyed performing tasks typically saved for weekends on weekdays. And I do those tasks with a quiet smugness as I imagine all my friends slaving away at their office jobs. Yesterday, you poor bastards fought for a dryer. Today, the laundromat is my oyster.

I'm doing laundry today because I start a full-time office job tomorrow. I bought some pants for the occasion. But I will be wearing those pants without underpants unless I do laundry today. While that's something I may feel comfortable doing over time, I don't think I want to go commando on my first day. So I'm doing laundry.

From tomorrow forward, I will be like the rest of New York -- filling the laundromats on weekends, missing an open dryer because I've run out of quarters, bumping elbows over counter space for folding.

Oh, who am I kidding? With my new increased income, I'll probably just spend more money and drop the shit off.

I wish I could just drop off my laundry. Even with my fabulous new dryer I still wish I could drop off my laundry.
