I need to wash my white coat but i don't need to do laundry. I just need to wash one white coat. I have two white coats, one medium and one small. I don't like the medium cos it's too big and i feel like i look dowdy in it. I wear it anyway and just fold the sleeves, but i have an OSCE on wednesday and it helps my confidence to at least look sharp, so i would like to wear my small white coat. But it's dirty cos i've worn it all week.
I brought it home yesterday and left it on the chair with every intention of hand washing it. I've been looking at it all day and believe it or not, i have been very reluctant to wash it by hand. I'm scared i won't do a good job of it and it won't be clean. This is what America has done to me. I'm trying to think of anything i have hand washed besides underwear since i've been here and i am drawing a blank. Oh, i hand washed some socks a couple of weeks ago cos i ran out and didn't have time to do laundry. Even underwear i hand wash, maybe once a year, if that.
We didn't have a washer and dryer in Nigeria AND i went to boarding school, so i have lots of experience with hand washing clothes.In primary school my mom paid someone to wash our clothes but secondary that shit stopped. I used to hate washing sheets, jeans and my mother's wrappers where you had to make sure you washed the white edges. It was horrible. Thank God those days are over.
I just thought it was interesting that i am now scared/reluctant to hand wash. Maybe it's cos it white. I dunno. I still want a maid though. The older i get the more i hate housework. Good thing is i still enjoy cooking, hopefully that doesn't turn into a chore too.
Ok bye. Books acalling.
