100 Word Challenge: Wash

It’s laundry day at the House of Roberts and on rare occasions that can mean, “payday.”

The menfolk, for whom I will still wash dirty clothes, are negligent in turning tees right-side out, unbuttoning shirts, and emptying pants pockets.

In the past I would mention these niceties but it’s never made a difference.

So… if I should find, say loose change or wet paper money in the washer basket after a load of clothes, I have no compunction about keeping said currency.

I consider it a tip for a job well done.

[Yes, they could, and often do, wash their own clothes, but I fill up a load with whatever dirty clothes make their way into the laundry room hamper. The menfolk have learned not to ask about finding any errant money.]

Marriage is about the most expensive way for the average man to get laundry done. Burt Reynolds

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “wash” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
