Goodbye, change jar

I am about to go upstairs and complete my final load of laundry in a coin-operated machine.

As of tomorrow, I will have unfettered and exclusive access to a washer and dryer any time of the day or night.

I will no longer be restricted to Tuesday afternoons between 1 and 6 pm (damn you, senior citizens!).

I will never again realize I have no clean underwear and gather it up to be washed, but alas, it is already 9:30 and the laundry room will close in half an hour.

I will never again settle for hanging slightly damp clothes around the apartment because I don't want to spend another dollar to dry the load again (or - see above - it is too late to use the machine anyway).

Goodbye laundry money . . . hello, electric bill!
