A particularly burdensome chore is the ironing of clothes for work. I rush through shirts and pants as quickly as possible; for instance, I will iron only one side of each shirt sleeve.
One consolation is during football season I can watch NFL telecasts while I iron. The home town Seahawks lost again on the road. The ballyhooed young defense underwhelmed -- much as they did in the 4th quarter of the last road game (Detroit) -- making Miami QB Ryan Tannehill look almost as efficient as Matt Stafford. The problem in both of these games is the disappearance of Seattle's pass rush.
Emotional investment in the home team invariably leads to disappointment.
