No one likes to do laundry. Dads do it because it has to be done, which is why the most unpleasant chore is last on the list year after year.

Perhaps it's because laundry is a neverending headache that has the potential to drive us insane. First of all, separating out the colors and delicates is a hassle. Second, trying to fold the clothes is what I always found most objectionable. Regular shirts and pants are fine, but all those little kid clothes are a true pain. And the socks -- holy hell the socks! They either don't have a match or -- mysteriously -- they seem to multiply like crazy rabbits. Not sure exactly how that happens, but it does. And it's not fun.
