Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Since Nurse Boy has been spending every evening on school, I have used the evenings to do some very exciting stuff. Stuff like whiten my teeth, trim and file my nails, clean the house (yuck), workout (double yuck), and watch some TV (ya know, the kind where balls are not being thrown about while grown men tackle one another). Some nights the only energy I can muster up, after making lunches and cleaning up after dinner and bath time, is the energy it takes to walk to the couch. Some nights I am just a sorry mess.
While sitting on my lazy rump one night, a commercial caught my eye. It was advertising some new washing machine. The special feature they were promoting? This washing machine can hold up to 6 months of laundry detergent. SIX MONTHS WORTH!
Right then I realized that the whole measuring (if you can even call pouring to the line on the cap measuring) of the laundry detergent is what is so very time consuming. I mean, how many times have I thought, "I really need to throw in a load of laundry, but I just can't muster up the energy to pour the laundry detergent into the washing machine. Now, if I could just gather up, sort, stain stick, and place ONLY the clothes into the machine... well, I would be right on it. But, the laundry detergent? Well, that just puts me over the edge!"
Come ON! How lazy are we? Now, give me a machine that seeks out and removes ALL stains. Or, a machine that sorts the laundry for me. Or, a dryer that drys AND folds the laundry. Maybe I should stop sitting on my rump and start inventing... Nah, who has the energy with 3 kids and a husband going to school?
However, Nurse Boy thought the said washing machine was genius.
It is official. It was invented by a man who was trying to help out one day and it WAS the laundry detergent that sent him over the edge.
