Dirty laundry kept the relationship fresh

This was their ritual. Every other Sunday, they would go do laundry. Even though they lived in a fun, nice building, they still didn’t have a washer and dryer in their apartment. It was vastly annoying.

Hence, they started a laundry sunday ritual where they could clean and air out items. It was a set time and place to fucus their thoughts and words. And, coffee kept them energized in their spirted discussions. People often asked them how they had stayed together so long. The answer was simple.

Dirty laundry kept the relationship fresh.

  2. We used to do that, in grad school – haul all our laundry across the street and up a bit, and do it all at the same time. Together. Neither of us could carry it all and do it alone.

    Warm jeans, clean sheets, quickly folding one’s underwear – almost fun.
