…although not always brilliantly.
Thoughts while emptying the dryer:
Why do t-shirts come out of the dryer inside-out when they went in the dryer right-side-out? (Or outside-out?)
And why do we use the expression “inside-out” rather than “outside-in”?
Followed by an attempt to turn these lofty thoughts into a metaphor for life:
Just when life seems to be in perfect alignment, going well & a perfect fit (although perhaps slightly damp), things are suddenly tossed about and it ends up topsy-turvy, upside-down and the fit seems a little off. And then you must grab life (or the t-shirt) and make things right again – turn them right-side-out – as best you can.
This from a woman who once wore a t-shirt inside-out in public which could also be a metaphor for life - my life – but I’m not going there…
