Role Reversal

My dryer died again yesterday.

Yes, I did just get it fixed two weeks ago, but with three years of accumulated lint in the exhaust hose, well, things got a little hot.

And yes, I did my groovy best cleaning out all the lint I could get to. I asked Husband to please clean out the hose two weeks ago, but alas, he did not. He sure did yesterday, though.

Anyway, the really funny thing about all of this is that I'm not freaking out. I didn't freak out the first time, either, but I wasn't running around the house yelling about a new dryer yesterday. I did, however, grumble about Husband not doing what I'd asked him to do in the first place. But I digress.

After Husband cleaned out a literal big bucket of lint, he got online to look up how much a new dryer would cost at Lowes. I said to him:

"How is it that you're the one online pricing appliances? Usually I'm the one doing that, and you're the one talking me out of it. Wait to see what the repairman has to say on Monday! Our clothes are clean! We've got clean underwear to last us two weeks...and hey! I have clothes lines! We can utilize Mother Nature!"

Sheesh. I mean, really!

To tell the truth, if I don't have to do laundry, it's no sweat off my brow.

gotta be careful with that lint thang. Just had someone in the Twin Cities have a house fire not long ago cuz they never bothered cleaning out the exhaust vent from their dryer.
