Actually, I really am. Always have been. Don't go to the extent, as in jokes, where I iron Buck's underwear, but I iron all his shirts, dress or not. Jeans, summer shorts for both of us. All our pillowcases, the top edge of the flat sheets, lots of other things. I've never been satisfied with the way things come out of the dryer, whether they're removed while still damp or not.

There, I've said it.
Oh, look, it's our very own Bree Van de Kamp.

Why? The minute you put the clothes on you sit down or move around sit in the car and make wrinkles any way or if your me I immediately spill some sort of food on my shirt.

Never seen the program but, in that case, just call me Bree.

I don't iron anything. I never even owned an iron until 2 years ago when I got my Grandmas when she passed. If something is wrinkled I throw it in the dryer with a damp cloth for a few minutes, usually makes them presentable. I'm with JP on usually spilling something on them. Kids usually tell me Mom get you napkin ready you know your going to spill.

Our church had a spaghetti lunch after the service last Sunday. James was wearing a white shirt, so we were taking guesses on how many red spots he would leave with! Poor guy didn't even make it past the serving line. As he was ladling the sauce onto the spaghetti it splashed an array of mini spots all over the front of it! He didn't get any while eating though. LOL
