|Lessons learned from being married, or maybe just from being domesticated: Folding fitted bed sheets is absolutely impossible, and anyone who can successfully do so is a super-mega genius. As I tried to do this last night, I quickly gave up, seeing that I'm not really into folding things in the first place. Plus, this is the thing that goes directly on your mattress, later to be covered by any of several other sheets and blankets. In other words, no one ever sees this thing; henceforth it's useless to spend time trying to fold it.
Google to the rescue! I found a solution to all my problems at Google Answers, Target, HGTV, and Better Homes and Gardens. Isn't the internet a wonderful thing? This one quote from Target fulfilled my dreams and made me nauseous at the same time: "Making the bed is so much more pleasurable when your sheets have been folded properly -- and not only do they take up a lot less space, they look great in your linen cupboard too! Follow our easy step-by-step guide on how to fold a fitted sheet, so it looks just like it came out of the packet." Isn't it everyone's dream to have your fitted sheets look like they came right out of the packet? Heck yeah. #psychology
