Ironing was never something that I liked. Perhaps because it’s mostly hot in our country and ironing is hot work. In college, we were doing women guard training and had a military-style uniform that had to be starched and ironed by your truly every week, and I hated doing it.
But ironically, when my kids were in school, the guy who used to do the ironing for us left unannounced and I was left with this job, at that stage I started enjoying ironing. I’d take out the semi wet clothes and iron them to a great finish. As we wear mostly cotton here it was way better to let the clothes dry completely and then iron them.
I used to put on music and let my mind wander while ironing. I solved many problems this way. I think as far as mindless activities go, ironing is one of the best one.
Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!
