Ani tells me I have a special relationship with our washing machine. Somehow I can always tell exactly when the machine completes a cycle. She is a bit puzzled by this because she totally tunes out the sound while a load is washing. I told her when she’s the mom and doing the laundry she’ll discover she has a special relationship with her washing machine. She insists this will not be the case and will be sure to buy a machine that buzzes when the cycle is complete.
