National No-Laundry Month

Dear Mr. President,

In this day and age, one simply cannot be too careful with wasting our earth’s precious resources. We need to be especially watchful of water and our carbon footprint. If our children, and our children’s children, are to inherit this beautiful country, we need to be the ones to care for it now.

With this in mind, I would like to present a nationwide mandate:

National No Laundry Month
With this mandate, I propose that for one entire month, no one will be permitted to do laundry. If you knew how many changes of clothes my eight year old daughter goes through in a single day, you would understand my concerns. Laundry is a huge waste of our precious resources. Many parents, myself included, need to do many loads of laundry a day just to stay “on top of things.”

{Frankly, Mr. President, I need a break.}

After all, what is the purpose of laundry? Not offending others with the way we smell? Well, if the whole nation smells, who is to cast fingers? What a small sacrifice to make for our world! The mothers of the world will line up to thank you, and you will officially earn the Mom Vote–a very powerful sector of voters. The Eco-Green Vote will also be yours: surely no other presidential candidate can compete! 

I would also like to bring up the point that if individuals are not tied up folding pile after pile of laundry, and can simply pick what they want to wear from the floor, you will free up hours of time. The economy will boom: what do people do when they have nothing to do? 

They shop! 
There will be no need for stimulus plans under my proposal; people will naturally flock to the stores when they have no laundry to do. 

In closing, Mr. President, I urge you to consider a National No-Laundry Month. If you chose to enact my proposal, we will not only save precious resources, but save the sanity of mothers everywhere. You will single-handedly save the economy, and win the upcoming election by a landslide. Can you think of anything else that would so benefit our country?

With support and admiration,
A Getting-Desperate Housewife

    Haahaa. I love it! Though, I don't know if I could handle the stink that would develop…hm. I actually put a funny comic strip relating to this on my personal family blog that you'd probably get a kick out of. Here's the link.
    It was so GREAT meeting you at the UTA event. Your blog is so cute!!
