The laundry I was sorting started taking on personalities and talking to each other. The dark laundry was bored and rather uninterested in anyone else, "Yawn, she's cleaning us again." "Did you catch that movie the other night?" "No, he wore me the day he went to the dump." "I went to Kohls the other day - have you seen some of the cute spring dresses? Rowr!"
The bleach load (white washcloths, white towels, etc) was like a bunch of guys comparing scars. "Oh yeah, well I cleaned up sugar syrup that had boiled all over the stove!" "Ah, that's nothing. I cleaned up that poopy diaper the kid smeared all over his walls." "Guys, guys, I have you totally beat. I cleaned up vomit - not once, but twice!"
The light laundry is elitist. They are the ones always complaining. "He-llo? It says 'dry clean only' on my tag! Can't you read?" "What is this gray shirt doing in OUR load? He's not a light!" "Peace, man. Gray is the new white - haven't you heard?" (That was the gray shirt, he's kind of a hippie)
Maybe it's kind of a crazy thing to do, but it always makes the task more enjoyable for me :)
What weird/crazy/creative things do you do to make mindless jobs more fun?
