Hot, Damp and Uncrowded

We wash more when it’s hot. Our clothes and ourselves both tend to get sweatier and grimier when the thermometer rises. So even though the clothes are smaller—shorts instead of pants; T-shirts instead of turtlenecks—there are more of them. The hamper remains full.

We shower more frequently. And because damp towels never seem to dry properly in our windowless bathroom, they are washed more often as well.

We’re still contending with the aftermath of our water main break, and the attendant demolition, repairs and mold abatement. The laundry room provides a respite that I am appreciating more frequently and more deeply with every wash.
