My husband usually does most of the laundry in our house since he is always flying off somewhere and needs clothes. It is probably a self defense thing on his part since he gets clean clothes quicker doing it himself then waiting around for me to remember there is laundry to do. That said, when he is away, I tend to forgot we even have a laundry room in the house and it soon piles up at an alarming rate. Which is why I hate laundry. Miss one day and soon there is a moutain of dirty underwear piled on your basement floor. It’s a no win situation. So I decide to make up a song about my disdain for laundry. Before you watch it (or if you watch it), I would like to present the following disclaimers:
1. I CAN’T SING! If you have seen my other video, Snow Days, you will know this and are prepared for the off key howl which I call singing. I know I can’t sing. My husband, as well, has told me I can’t sing (I guess the honeymoon’s over). After 13 years of marriage, he might possibly be embarrassed by me.
2. It is very hard to make a video (even a bad one) by yourself. I used to be in video production in my former life so I know what it takes. Back when I was doing video, there were plenty of warped individuals who liked to do crazy videos and found them just as hilarious as I did. Now, at 45, the amount of individuals who would willing participate in such antics with me have dwindled so I am all alone on this venture, just me, a tripod and a camera. Even my children, who once thought I was funny, have shunned me. My children are now at the age where I embarrass them and no longer want to help me. They used to be willing participants and now they want nothing to do with my videos. I am beginning to think they might not really be my kids.
3. These are not award winning videos. They won’t go viral and many of you won’t find them funny. That’s OK. I think there are funny and a few of my friends do too. My warped mind is always coming up with strange things and this is an outlet for me to be creative and have some fun. If you find them funny, great. We should be friends. If not, then I’m sure there’s a cat video somewhere that you can watch.
So here it is. Enjoy
Oh, one more thing….no laundry was done in the making of this video.
