I don't know if this will turn into a series or not. It would be a fun series to write, but I don't really want the pressure of another multi-part topic (I have so many unfinished as it is). One peculiar difference between the sexes is that men and women have different ideas about when clothes are actually dirty.
For men, if a shirt is worn for an hour or two to a function with no heavy lifting or noticeable spills, clearly it is not. If it is worn a second time for an hour or two to dinner or to church, the question is closer, but the shirt is still good for another wear, right?
Not so for women. I'll stop short of saying that merely trying on clothes requires a trip to the cleaners for those that didn't make the cut, but that's not too far off. I have actually witnessed a wife who shall remain nameless wear a jacket (over a blouse, mind you) to church for about 2 hours and wash it. Puzzling, to say the least.
This is obviously a generalization. I'm sure there are men who are less manly on this issue. If there are women who are moreso, I have never met them.
And clearly I'm biased, but the male perspective (as identified herein) seems far superior. It makes much more sense economically, environmentally, and ecologically. It is also more efficient.
