The Frau’s mother-in-law gave her something for Christmas that she thought was really great.
It’s called the Sort a Sack. It’s a laundry backpack. You sort your whites and darks in the bag’s two compartments and then you wear it down to the laundry room.
It’s really great because it allows The Frau to easily carry both her baby and her laundry down from the fifth floor to the third sub-basement where her neighbor may or may not be washing clothes. But not to worry if she is because the Sort a Sack also makes it easy to take your laundry and your baby back to where you started.
If you look at the Sort a Sack closely, you realize it was primarily designed for American college students who are living in dorms. There are instructions on how to wash whites and darks right on the bag.
So here’s the problem with the bag: The Frau is not in college. In fact, she’s more than a decade out. And that is why The Frau’s great laundry bag is not so great. Because she is still living in a situation to think that it is. That is all.
