A Daunting Calculation
This morning as Charlie was helping me hang clothes on our new clothesline, he noted that there were a lot of socks to hang up. I explained that there are five people in our family, each with two feet, which means that in one day, if it's cold enough that we're all wearing socks, we use ten socks. And in one week, which is seven days, our family would use 70 socks.
Wow, he said. That's a lot of socks, he said.
Indeed. No wonder it feels as if the laundry is never-ending.
