View Full Version : You know what bugs me? Closets.

I was thinking about this the other day when I was putting away my laundry. Closets serve no real value. I wash the clothes, I fold them or put them on hangers, and then I carry them from the clothes rod in the laundry room to the clothes rod in my closet. Why can't I just have a laundry room instead of a closet, and leave the clothes in there?

With the time I've spend moving clothes from laundry rooms to closets over the past 40 years, I could've written a book or cured Alzheimer's or something. If I ever build a house, it's not going to have closets.

My custom built line of homes will have a laundry room window or optional door directly into the master bedroom closet. There will be a large receiving table on which to set folding clothes and a rod on which to hang hanging clothes. It will be uber-efficient.

You could always install one of the new washer dryer in one unit in your current closet and make it a laundry room, also saving you the time of moving the clothes from the washer to the dryer...

I'm actually afraid of closets at night. I have to check to make sure the door is closed before I can sleep. Actually, come to think of it, ditto for the bedroom door.

I'm not sure why I think something is going to come in from my living room and eat me, though.

Man am I f*cked in the head.

Oh, and my closet's pretty valuable. I don't have a dresser; all my clothes are stored on my closet shelves.

I hear that pulling the covers up over your head and making sure your toes are not exposed is also a 100% effective defense against monsters.

When I was in third grade, I was in bed and heard stuff being moved around in my closet. It kept going and was really freaking me out, especially when I saw the glowing eyes peeking out at me. My cat had a wicked sense of humor, I guess.

What I really hate is when it's so quiet at night, you can hear a pin drop, and you can't fall asleep.

Did the door just creep open? Is there a big scary alien in my room?

I cannot get to sleep unless I have at least one foot sticking out of the covers exposed. Sometimes I need to have both feet out. It is kind of a temperature control thing. If I don't have a foot out, I will become too hot.

I used to do that foot thing, too, but I don't anymore. One of the benefits of being single is that I can turn my air down as low as I want and turn on the ceiling fan. Nights year round are 65-70 in my bedroom now. None of this "turn off the air, I'm cold" bullshit.

And I get to sleep all over the bed, too. Good times.

You do that, too? An exposed foot is the world's best temperature regulator.

I've alway struggled with this one:

Is it better to have the laundry room upstairs, with the bedrooms, or downstairs with the living space? It's nice to have it upstairs so that you don't have to drag the clothes up and down, but then you have to drag yourself up and down to change things around. If it's downstairs it's easier to change loads, but you have to carry the clothes back and forth.

You know, I do have the know-how to make a reverseable laundry chute. I could even make one that sent the clothes to the right room... :hmmm:

My quirk now is that I have to sleep on my stomach with one leg straight and the other pulled up almost to my chest. I sleep like that all night long, sometimes flip-flopping the legs. I can't sleep on my side or on my back. Never been able to sleep on my back, in fact.

You heard right...I have survived for years using this trick.:)



And if I didn't have a laundry room, where would the kids throw thier shoes, basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, baseballs, bikes and toys? And if I didn't have a closet, where would I put my shoes?:hmmm:

Actually, come to think of it, ditto for the bedroom door.That kind of reminds me of The Blair Witch Project where night after night they kept getting into that tent then like clockwork, boom, a scary sound comes out of nowhere and thier in the tent with the flashlights on glowing like a gaint lighting bug where everyone can see them but all they can see is the inside of tent.

F#ck that, after first scary night I'm up in a big tree looking down at sh!t with a couple big rocks and a stick in the pitch black where no one can see me.

What does that have to do with locking yourself in your room? How the f#ck am I supposed to know!
