I'll have a Mocha Frappucino with soy milk and some fabric softener, please.

Today I had a very Harvey Pekaresque epiphany while putting myself through the hopefully rare trauma of going to a NYC laundromat at 3 pm on a Wednesday. I realized that the only difference between people who regularly do laundry during the daytime and whose minds have become used to this 2 hours you’ll never get back, “time to make the donuts” weekly routine and the people who seem to hang out leisurely at the Starbucks next door long after their coffee is enjoyed, is a laptop and a liberal arts degree(although in this economy it might just be the laptop). I am not going to expand on the profundity of this statement as any more in-depth analysis will just expose my University of Arizona education.


  1. I just want to know why you've capitalized the "L" in laundromat. Kindly advise.

  2. Jenny, You are totally right. That was a mistake on my part, that I apparently made a few times. Next time, I will always keep my copy of Eats, Shoots & Leaves by my side wile I type.
