I've always considered the laundromat to be a really fun way to do chores. It's second only to car washes in my mind. I remember being fascinated by the dryers whenever my mom took Seester and me with her to do laundry. I'm (sort of) all grown up now and I still love watching dryers and front loading washers.
We went in at night on a weekday so we almost had the place to ourselves. Will and I played with the rolling baskets while we waited and generally acted like small children would if no one was around.
