Little Girl (aged 12) came into the kitchen to find a stack of newly-folded (by me) towels on the counter. She was indignant.
- Her: WHY are you HOLDING the towels HERE?
- Me: What?
- Her: There’s only ONE towel in the BATHROOM and it’s DIRTY! And that’s because all the towels are HERE!
- Me: Okay. Well, this stack of towels has just been folded, and they are ready to take to the bathroom. So, do you want to take them?
- Her: NO!
On that exit line she swept grandly from the room.
And THAT’S why the towels are here.
