Sartorial Selections


Mom has a closet filled with comfy clothing. In order for her to choose something from her closetful of clean shirts and pants, I have to hide (i.e. place in her hamper) her clothes from the day before. She just doesn’t understand why she can’t wear the same outfit again and again. It’s so much easier!

She especially doesn’t understand why she should worry about wearing clean socks, and doesn’t like taking the trouble to walk the extra five steps from the closet to the dresser to fetch them. To keep me from making off with them, she has taken to hiding her socksĀ from me, behind the decorative pillow she won at Bingo a few weeks ago.

Since, for me, out of sight is truly out of mind, she succeeds more often than I’d like to admit.
