On Why Eli7 Cannot Be a Housewife

“My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.”

I once had a teacher who said she loved ironing because she could fix something, get all the creases out, make it right in just a few minutes.

Well, all I have to say is that the teacher probably did not accidentally iron her mother's skirt at midnight, only to find that out the next morning when, after trying to put on the beautifully ironed skirt, she checked the size and found it was not even near her size and then had to wear a creased skirt to work anyway.

And that teacher probably did not have her ironing board break the next night when she tried to unfold it (the leg literally snapping off) so that after struggling for way too long with her shirt and the broken board on her bed, her shirt was still creased.

But I am giving up and going to bed. Creased shirt be damned.

Oh dear. Ironing isn't your forte, is it?

There's more to housewifery than ironing...maybe there's hope for you in some other area. Cooking or baking, perhaps? :-P
