a new found enemy

this afternoon after church i decided i wanted to do laundry.  scary … i know.  so i pulled out a stack of stuff i got at the baby shower that needed to be washed and proceeded to open the packages.  sounds simple enough, right? WRONG. it took me a solid 45 minutes to unpackage one laundry basket full of blankets, towels, washcloths, and bibs.  45 minutes.  why, you ask? here’s why…

those stupid little plastic thingies!  they were in everything.  the moment you think you got them all, another set shows up out of nowhere.  and you never get them all. as soon as you cut one end of it, the other end vanishes, only to be found later on the floor when you step on it and scream.  the worst were the washcloths.  seriously, there were about 4 in each tiny little 4 inch by 4 inch piece of terrycloth!  is there really a theft epidemic of baby wash cloths? really?  sigh … it was so unnecessary.  i wonder how many billions of dollars companies spend each year on using those stupid little things to keep stuff packaged.  whoever invented them … i hate you, but you are brilliant and probaby very very rich.
