here’s a little something you might not know about me. something i never knew about me too until i lived with jeff.
i kind of like doing the laundry.
yep, you read that right. i kind of like doing the laundry. and when i say “kind of,” i mean i secretly look forward to segregating the whites from the colored ones; jeff’s really dirty work clothes from my lightly stained ones. moreover, i am notorious for taking at least 10 minutes at coles laundry aisle sniffing different detergents and fabric softeners to a point where i am already assaulting my nostrils with chemical scents that they retaliate by knocking the rest of my senses dizzy before i finally decide which products to buy. (f*ck it, i’ll take this one.)
up until now, that’s something only jeff knew. it’s not exactly something i wanna go brag about but by disclosing such information here, that leaves the dude with one less dirt on me in case of a future blackmail. (the other “dirt” involves me and my meticulous segregation of household rubbish that the victorian government waste management group might as well use me as their poster child. but that’s another story.)
right now, i just wanna share with you this upcoming event sponsored by breeze activbleach, wherein moms from all over the country are invited to join 1Laba Day on august 28.
basically, it’s a simultaneous nationwide event where moms are given the perfect excuse to take a day off from doing the laundry to participate in more exciting activities that breeze has in store for them. because, yes, as nice as it is to smell freshly laundered clothes, moms deserve a break from that too. and i like how breeze has organized this event as a way of celebrating every mother’s hard work and love for her family.
With 1 Laba Day, Breeze aims to wash 1 million stains using Breeze ActivBleach, which removes even the toughest of stains in just one wash. Participating moms can enjoy their ultimate laundry day-off as Breeze treats them to various entertainment activities, while the Breeze Laba Ladies and Laba Machines, sponsored by campaign partners Electrolux, White Westinghouse, Whirpool and LG, will take care of washing their clothes.
So be a part of the Breeze 1 Laba Day event and see for yourself how Breeze with ActivBleach removes 1 million stains in just one wash. Like the official Breeze Facebook page (@BreezePhilippines) and join the online promos to get the chance to win washing machines from partner brands. Consumers can also get free Breeze gift packs for every purchase of an Electrolux, Whirlpool and LG washing machine.
fancy that. a chance of winning a brand new washing machine! and speaking of washing machines, don’t you just love how they hypnotize you with their perpetual spinning? popit and i trip out on that a lot. (who would’ve known cats subscribe to the machine’s spinning motion as a sedative too?)
this one time — the very first time i did my laundry in australia at this hostel i called home for about 10 weeks — i couldn’t help but relate to the clothes all tangled up in each other; suffocated by the soap suds; twisted all around this way and that. as crazy as this sounds, i actually felt sad for them. in my head, i was like, “it’s okay, guys. i know how you feel.”
that was when i suddenly realized how sad i actually was without me actually knowing it.
point is, aside from washing your dirty clothes, washing machines make pretty good shrinks too. they help you get in touch with your, um, emotions. lol.
and that, my friends, is my self-psychoanalysis of how and why i developed a special relationship with washing machines and with doing the laundry, in general. either that or i’m. just. plain. psycho.
