Boxer Shorts Husbandry

There were a few pairs of boxer shorts in my draw, and to be honest a majority were getting a bit ratty and stainy and a musty odour permeated a few pairs; a musty odour which I was confident would be taken care of by the ministrations of the washing machine, but which had long since been a problem the average washing machine is not equipped to handle, let alone conquer. For some reason, though, the idea of replacing them seemed alien and wrong. But I did, only a few days ago, and the results have been revelatory. The notion that a reform of this type was even possible is something that needed a sharp figuative whack across the back of my head: you could say I get set in my ways, and am not always open to new ideas.

No, that’s wrong. I am open to new ideas; I’m just not always keen on rushing into adopting them. They need to seem comfortable. Logical and helpful aren’t enough. Familiar and friendly are required.

Socks have been a similar story in the last little while. Get rid of the ones with holes. Replace them. Easy. It’s liberating.

There could be many such revolutions in store in the coming months. I won’t foreshadow any here, as I’m unable to. These things don’t just occur to me – or they didn’t: I’m trying to change the way I think a bit, so they will in the future. Hopefully.
