I beg your pardon?

9 Feb

Excuse me.

Was everyone aware that wicker laundry baskets – the sort with the pretty linen liners – are $60.


On what basis is it acceptable to charge me SIXTY DOLLARS to make my lack of laundry doing appear pretty and intentional with wicker and linen.

It’s a conspiracy.

It’s my mother I think.

She had them jack up the pretty laundry basket prices to teach me a lesson about regular laundering practices.

It’s as if the Target website is screaming, “YOU CAN”T AFFORD TO HIDE YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY!!!”

Fine then.

The dirty laundry will remain right where it’s at.

Which is everywhere. In unkempt piles teetering precariously atop dollar-store plastic baskets.*

Which I am fine with.

*Forgive me. I only worded that sentence that way because WordPress likes to underline half the words in my blog entries and label them “Complex Language” with suggestions on how to dumb down my writing.

You want “complex” WordPress?? Go talk to the wicker laundry basket makers! Apparently it’s an art form of the highest order!!

-UPDATE- Zachary Paul Jacob if you are at home right now, enjoying your snow day, not doing laundry, reading this blog entry and now you’ve  a mind to get me a wicker laundry basket with a linen liner for Valentines Day let me stop you right there. Don’t. Or I’ll expose your best beer to sunlight in retaliation. Love you.
