    Default Ladies, has laundry lost its glamour?

    It has potential, but I doubt it will attain this status: LILEKS (James) Gallery of Regrettable Food

    Whoa.... Don't eat oatmeal while reading Gallery of Regrettable food. So many unappealing puce green photos containing meat; rack of lamb is cancelled. We will be eating a large salad for dinner.

    I refuse to believe laundry ever had any glamour, ever. Unless you were lying on your chaise longue in a tea gown telling your ladies maid to go easy on the starch in your underthings.

    The first time my lady's maid puts starch in my underthings she is history, toast, yesterday's news, fired, axed, gone.

    Starched panties... imagine.

    I still remember that one time I REALLY offended someone: I was in my early 20's and working retail, selling lingerie. There was a rather dignified woman (and, if you are familiar with Southern culture, this *is* relevant -- she was a black woman who must have been in her fifties), who was concerned about buying new bras because "they just didn't hold up like they used to." I asked how she cared for them, and when she responded, I said, "Oh, ma'am, ironing them will damage the fabric. Spandex wasn't meant to be ironed."

    She got a hard look in her eyes, one that came from years of defending her dignity.

    "My Momma reared me right, and I always iron my underwear."

    In one small sentence, I had managed to offend her on multiple levels, without ever meaning to.

    Still resonates with me, some 20 years later . . .

    I don't know what things are coming to, people wandering about with unstarched undies... still, what can one expect from <lowers voice in case anyone is listening> belly dancers.

    Wow, ironing bras, now that is impressive.

    At my house if it comes out of the dryer needing to be ironed it gets ironed once before being sent to the consignment shop.

    Thanks for the warning, just as well as listened.
    Cross dressing veggies were my favourite.
