Sometimes I manage to amaze myself with my idiocy.

Today is one such day. I'm completely out of clean laundry (save for slacks and dress shirts, which aren't exactly "run errands in 115°" clothing), so I woke up, sorted everything by color and temperature, and started doing laundry.

Two loads in, as I was preparing to go to Costco, Target, and the storage unit (a loaf of bread, a gallon of milk, and a stick of btuter), I realized the jeans I was wearing—the last pair of clean jeans—were dirty.

So I added them to my jeans load, composed of nothing but jeans and a pair of cargo pants.

If you do laundry often, you can already see where this is going. What I neglected to remember is that denim takes forever to dry. And I'd only made things worse by creating a load of clothes that was essentially nothing but denim. So while the load of jeans did only take 15 minutes to wash, it's been in the dryer for over an hour now and the dial hasn't even begun to budge out of the "Automatic" section.

By the time I have pants, it'll be rush hour.
