Not to go all British pop star on you, but yeah, I kissed a dryer and I liked it. Sing about it as loud as you want. The thing is, most European households don’t have dryers. The washers do tend to spin outlandishly, but the final drying even with the spin-iest washer is done by hanging. I know this is a good thing, and I know that dryers are energy wasters, and I know that I don’t need that warm, soft, dryer feeling. I know, but today, I just don’t care. We found a nice Laundromat and washed and dried everything we could find in anticipation of our upcoming visitors (and not for ourselves at all. Well . . .).
