Trickery

on March 4, 2016

Ming has a new job at a different restaurant but has been called in so often over the last few days that he hasn’t had time to wash the one white shirt and blue apron he was given.

He is not just fiercely independent, he is ferociously independent, so all of my offers to wash these items have been rejected.

But this morning he has gone to Perth by train to pick up a second-hand ute (truck) we’ve bought to replace our old unregistered one. He will be back by noon.

So I have a window of time in which to secretly wash and dry the shirt and the apron (separately of course). The shirt is now nearly dry and the apron is in the washing machine.

Once both items are clean and dry, I will have to fling them onto the chair where Ming left them last night, so that he won’t suspect.

Wish me luck!

    very similar to washing a little one’s special blankie )

    So sweet – what a loving mom you are. Hope he doesn’t find out – you’d better “wash” out!

  5. Vicki says:

    Yes, you’d think they’d give him 2-3 outfits so they can have presentable staff.
    Good luck with the trickery. Perhaps you should wrinkle them a bit too so the ‘wash’ is not obvious.

  6. So funny… ‘secret mission’ !!!! Diane

    Good luck! I hope he doesn’t discover your trickery. 🙂 You are lucky that he wants to wash his own clothes. I worry my boys will never willingly take on the task of doing their own laundry!

  8. So did he notice you washed his clothes
