AIRING DIRTY LAUNDRY
A few days ago I decided to go tan up on the roof and took my pillow with me (sans pillow case). I ended up getting it completely filthy, so I figured I'd throw it in the washer. I stuffed it into this tiny little apartment sized washer, and when I went to bed, I was quickly reminded that I had no pillow. I figured if I threw it in the dryer it would be dry in an hour or so. I quickly scurried to throw it in the dryer, and much to my surprise, the darn thing was so water logged it probably weight at least 50 pounds. Needless to say, I ended up throwing the thing in the shower (at 1 in the morning) and stomping the living daylights out of it. My efforts were futile and in the end I ended up leaving the pillow in a soggy heap at the bottom of the shower. In the end I ended up rolling up a blanket for the night. The next day starting early(ish) in the morning I threw the water logged pillow in the dryer, after another thorough stomping (of course). It took me 10 hours of straight drying to get the silly thing dry, but on the bright side... it has never been fluffier!
Moral of the story, don't leave important things until last!
