Marriage 601, Lecture 987: The taxonomy of the whites

As we are folding laundry in preparation for making the bed, still with flannel sheets. Still. SH was all ready to make the bed but discovered there were other items mixed in with the sheets, which he felt was scope creep, as he had committed only to making the bed, not to folding other things. But fold he did, admitting, "You do the laundry so the least I can do is fold."

Me: Hey! Stop! What are you doing?

SH: What?

Me: You put a [folded] washcloth on top of that [folded] handkerchief!

SH: But they are the same shape and size!

Me: That is not how you classify laundry!

SH folds a dishrag and puts it on top of the washcloth.

Me: Now you are really doing it wrong!

SH: They are all the same size and shape!

Me: But they don't get stored anywhere near each other! They are not in the same categories!

SH: Same size and shape.
