Hey, did you know that if you leave out a gallon of milk for two weeks it will expand, rupturing the jug and spilling everywhere? Did you know that spoiled milk smells really really gross?
When I was young and obediant my parents always got on my case to pick up my clothes. I’ve now come to realize the folly of this. Leaving my clothes scattered around my aparment serves three purposes. First, it allows me to quickly determine which clothes I’ve worn recently. If it’s on the floor, I’ve worn it already this week. Second, when clothes are lying on the floor it is easier to assess if they are dirty, wrinkled, or matching. Third, if the clothes are on the floor, I can easily pile them onto my bed for an extra layer of insulation during the cold nights (I refuse to turn on my heat). So, even if cleanliness is next to godliness, it’s definitely not next to convenience.
