Something you wanted to master?
I have always wanted to be able to fold sheets.
No, not flat sheets...
the fitted ones!
I have watched Martha many, many times.
(Yes, Martha Stewart! I love her! If you don't
keep it to yourself!!)
I followed the pictures perfectly...
and did exactly what the book told me to do...
My sheets look horrible!
When I first got married
I tried countless times to fold them right.
By right I mean, like Martha folds them!
Martha always does everything PERFECT!
(I hate you, Martha...er...I mean I love you Martha!)
I finally, in desperation, gave up!
I instead bought two small laundry baskets -
one for singles (the boy's beds)
and one for queen (ours).
I put them in the closet and
after I took the fitted sheets
out of the dryer I wadded them up...
and threw them in the appropriate basket!
(and closed the door, of course, I wouldn't
want anyone to know I didn't fold my sheets)
I bet you're smirking right now!
I've done it that way for awhile now...
Martha's site...and what should I see...
a VIDEO of Martha folding a fitted sheet!
I acted like I didn't care...
I looked at everything else...
until I couldn't stand it any longer!!!
I went to the video...and there she was
folding a perfect sheet.
I was filled with guilt.
I ran downstairs,
grabbed the nearest sheet
and followed the instructions by the letter!
And still my sheet looked like little more
than a crumpled sheet.
Mine have elastic all the way around.
Maybe hers don't...
Maybe hers are square instead of round
and therefore lend themselves to being
Maybe its NOT that I'm a loser at sheetfolding!
Sadly, I have to face the facts:
I will NEVER be able to fold fitted sheets.
When it comes to linen, I'm a loser...sigh...
I still love you Martha...
