In retrospect, today’s photo was bound to happen, sometime – I just hadn’t quite expected it to be today.
The towels are about to come out and the dirty clothes to go in.
Basically I do clothing laundry roughly twice a week, usually right after every other trip to the gym, when I have two sets of disgusting workout clothing in the hamper – and today is one of those days. I also wash (and dry) my towels once a week – and the fate’s fickle finger pointed at today.
I picked up a new habit while my friends were visiting me over the holidays – and that is to come home before going to the gym and starting the towels.
Towels are the only thing that I regularly both wash and dry, and the machine takes just under four hours to accomplish this task, including 95 minutes of drying – the rest is washing and some 15 minutes of random drum turning once the machine has finished drying. This is perfect timing for trips to the gym, as I tend to get home shortly after the machine has finished its complete dance.
I might note that you should be grateful that this is actually the washing machine – had I been running even further behind, you could have gotten me in the gym locker room.
