Remember the post I wrote last year about drying my washed lettuce on the spin cycle of my washing machine?

Well, spinning your lettuce on the Spin Cycle is all well and fine, but let me be the first to tell you that the reverse is NOT true.
When your ten-year-old washing machine goes out mid-wash, and refuses to Spin and Drain; and you are trying to figure out how to unload a full load of clothes that are swimming in soapy water, the answer is NOT to use the salad spinner.
It just. Won't. Work.
Not for lack of trying. One piece of clothing at a time.
So it looks like I will be getting a new washing machine. Which is kind of a bummer, because I was just telling The Mister that I thought we "needed" to get a Wii with Wii Fit (for our P.E. Curriculum, you know? It's for educational purposes.)
When I showed him the washer he said, "Well doing the laundry by hand is probably more exercise than a Wii Fit anyway!"
I didn't find the humor in that.
But I digress...
So the La Vida Lesson for today?
Salad Spinner-- An awesome invention!
Spinning laundry in that spinner?
Not so much.
