I recently posted the image below on Twitter, together with a caption that read: “Behold the beloved empty laundry bin, soon to be but a fleeting memory. #nearlyextinctspecies”
“What is that?” someone tweeted back. “I don’t understand the words empty laundry bin.”
“I’ve never seen one of those at my house either,” another follower piped up. “Arghhhh… kids.”
“It’s good you took a picture to remember the moment,” yet another follower chimed in.
“Agreed!” I replied. “Have you ever seen an empty one before? First time for me in about a decade. #raresighting”
Turns out one of my followers had seen this marvelous sight before.
“Once, about 3 years ago, I had all the laundry in the house clean,” she tweeted. “Then the kids got home from school.”
Misery so loves company.
