It’s really not that big of a challenge for me, since Mom Oyster drilled it into my head over and over again how to fold a fitted sheet as a child. I still have nightmares (I don’t) from the those lessons. What’s the matter with you, it’s just a fitted sheet it’s not that difficult to fold, she would taunt me. Kidding, of course. She was a good, kind and patient teacher, but who wants to learn how to fold a fitted sheet as a seven-year-old. It’s not exactly a good skill to protect you from the bullies, you know what I mean?
Still, there are plenty of people who can’t fold one and don’t want to bother to learn so they just crumple the fitted sheet up into a ball and stuff it into the closet for the next time. Don’t be that person. You want to know why gentleman? Because folding a fitted sheet like a pro will get you laid. Just find a reason to do it in front of a girl. It’s like oysters on steroids.
Also? My mom could kick this ladies ass in a fitted sheet folding contest. She was a three-time Myrtle Beach Fitted Sheet Folding Champion (1972,1973, and 1976), natch. [via kottke]
