The end is near!!!1oneone

The time has come to do laundry.

I never should have let it go this long, but I got busy and have been sucked up into the way of thinking that if I postpone something long enough, it will just disappear. This hasn't worked for my stupid internship poster or my research consultation proposal and it didn't work for my laundry.

I don't even mind doing laundry. There isn't a lot of work to do - I'm not beating the clothes on rocks or something. I think it's just the lingering fear of my basement and the fear of falling down the stairs while carrying a huge basket of clothes. The longer I put off this potential
Death By Breaking My Neck And Landing Face First And Smothering To Death In A Pile Of My Own Dirty Socks, that's one more day I can have in my valuable and rewarding life and can spend blogging and putting off other upleasant things.

It makes sense, dude. I swear.

So the deadline came yesterday. It was Laundry Time. There was no more time to waste. I had to face my fate.

And then I forgot.

Which means that today I must pay the ultimate price for procrastination*: the last pair of underpants.

Does everyone have a Last Pair of underpants? The ones that sit at the bottom of the drawer, hated and ignored, until the moment where they are the last resort? I have. I hate these underpants, but they are the cross I must bear for my sin of Sloth.

I also have a favorite pair of underpants, which I wear when I need extra confidence or when I think it will be a good day. No one sees them, but I know they're there and that's enough for me.

Do other people have an underpants hierarchy? Or do you do this with some other piece of clothing?

* Well, I guess I would have paid the ultimate price if I'd waited one more day, but I don't really want to think about that.

I think everyone has (or at least should have) a last pair. I mean saying "whoa, this drawer's empty, time to pull out the pair " beats the pants off of (heh heh, puns) suddenly realizing you're about to be in real trouble a day from now.
Laundry days and days with the most stuff to do always coincide.

A point for your linguistic collection... (I am sure that Jez will confirm...) at the British side of the pond, MEN wear underpants and women wear pants or knickers or briefs (well, most do).

Ironically, those are the underpants that will be with you for the rest of your life since you never wear them. Ironical, indeed...

I'm a bit indifferent when it comes to underpants but I certainly have a bras hierarchy.

And you really shouldn't complain about laundry - at least you don't have to hunt for quarters every week. Unless your folks are just cruel.

My underpants collection is hierarchical and color coded, based on my confidence needs AND lack of laundry doings...
