At home we all have these routines and a basic knowledge that left few surprises in day-to-day life. For example, I rarely think very hard about what I'll have to eat. Laundry is an annoyance, but it's a mindless task. Most things are that way. By contrast, I spend a ton of time here feeling super ignorant about the basics.
I've completed laundry for the first time just now. I use the term completed very loosely. My work is done, but I just learned that air-drying pants will take about 24 hours.

Drying is the tricky part. I've never air-dryed anything before, so I had no idea how long it would take when I decided to wash absolutely everything that I wasn't wearing and hang them up on the clothesline. Word is they should be dry by the time I finish training today. Luckily I was stylin' big time yesterday, so my colleagues get to enjoy an encore of my awesome ensemble.
The drying seemed obvious, but I wasn't sure what to do with socks because I hadn't seen any on a clothesline. I asked my roommate what to do about drying socks. Again, I'd be remiss to withhold this crucial information. To dry socks here, one should put them on the clothesline.
