I need a maid

I realized today that my laundry is taking over the basement. It’s impossible to keep up. For one thing, the dryer doesn’t really dry things the first time; it needs about 1.5 cycles to get things dry. So that doubles the number of times that I have to remember to go downstairs and tend to the laundry. In addition, Mary’s whole goal in life is the creation of dirty laundry. It’s like her job.

How do I know that things are getting out of hand, you ask? Well, I discovered a bathing suit in the pile of laundry downstairs. I can’t remember when the last time either of us went swimming might have been; I’ve gone this summer, before we moved, but I don’t think Conor has, and it’s his suit. I can only assume that for some reason I decided when we moved that it was dirty (fell out of a box, perhaps?) and it’s been there ever since. In any case, it doesn’t say anything good about my housekeeping abilities.

In a related story, there’s an immediate opening for a maid, cook, and launderer (or laundress). The pay’s shitty, but I’ll provide you with a cute baby to play with and give you first dibs on your favorite section of the newspaper unless it’s the comics. Any takers?
