Rant du Jour

What exactly is it about towels - normal, non-threatening bath towels - that men don't understand?!

You use a towel to dry your freshly-scrubbed body. It gets wet. THAT's what happens when you apply a dry medium to a wet surface....you hang it on one of a half dozen hooks conveniently located near the bathroom. It dries. A period of 12 to 24 hours passes, you retrieve the dry towel and start all over again.

If you follow this time-tested procedure you can use the same towel for several days before depositing it in the hamper to be laundered.

If you do not follow the prescribed steps you must access a fresh towel every damn day. Thereby causing additional work for the launderer in the household. Usually the female family member.

The family member who, let's admit it, holds the keys to the male family member's sex life.

Therefore, men: If you hang up your bath towel as you should, you will get more nookie.

And everyone lived happily ever after. Then End.

You are such a wise woman. How could anyone ignore such clear logic? :)

I always thought it was the toilet seat that caused marital issues, not bath towels.

Hey, it's me! Pushing Daisies hasn't been axed YET. There's just speculation that it will be because the ratings are crummy.

And a death sentence for putting the wet towel on the bed!!!!! Well, maybe the stockade...

As if my cosmopolitan good looks weren't enough for nookie!
Now I have to be responsible?! Oh how I long for the 1950's when men were men and bath towels took care of themselves!
