Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

I am allergic to this word for the picture it conjures up. Especially on Saturday.

Shoot! Even writing it makes it show up.

You see, growing up, doing the family pressing was my job. Every dang Saturday. The whole family’s!

Granted the guys had to vacuum, cut grass and the like. And Mom did all the laundry, even before we had a dryer. That meant she hung up the clothes then when dry, she brought me the wrinkled clothes.

It seemed a never ending mountain. Not to mention Mom was angry every single Saturday.

Now I look at it with my t-shirts and permanent press and the occasional steamer (once every couple years?) and realize how unfair the world has been to women and especially my mother.

I am tired. I wish I could think of something ironic to say here. But maybe I’m anemic?
