the modern world




i'd dreamed of this day for nearly five years
(actually more if you count new york
where i had to cross the street
to dry my clothes).
finally, the presence of a real live dryer
is gracing our apartment.
when i told milla we were going to pick it up
she was very confused.
"but what does it do?"
"it dries clothes!"
"you mean, it's a string, or what?"
no, babes, welcome to the high life.

i can wash and dry at the same time.
i can dry my clothes
in less than three and a half hours time,
my clothes are not permanently wrinkled
after they come out of my dryer.
welcome to the modern world!
it's a dream!
