I was working my way through a pile of laundry yesterday when something dawned on me: I have no idea how to fold women's underwear.
Every article of clothing I wear, underwear included, comes in a shape that is easily fold-able. Shirts - Sleeves & sides in, fold in half, stack. Jeans - Fold lengthwise, fold in half horizontally, fold in half horizontally again, stack. Boxer Briefs (settle down ladies) - Fold in half vertically, fold horizontally stack. This is because I can get all my articles of clothing into this shape:
(Also known as a square.)
That makes them easy to stack in my drawers.
(Also known as a triangle.)
How do you get this shape into something that is stack-able?? Fold it in half, okay, now what? In half again? That pile would topple over in a second. You're always left with an unequal weight distribution, where you'll have one fatter side of your folded undies. So, what do you do?
If you're wondering what I did by the way, if you guessed "Just jam them in a pile in my wife's drawer" you'd be correct.
