A Summer Puzzle

Clothesline!

Why is it:

cotton + clothes dryer = meh

but: 

cotton + clothes line = bliss

In the same vein:

fresh air + outdoors = well, perfectly lovely, actually

while:

fresh air + indoors = open all the windows it smells so good!!!!

Just a little something I puzzle over as I inhale.

Hi there,

For the same reason that cotton + clothesline + iron + maybe some spray starch = happy memories. I remember my mom using a hot lightbulb on a lamp to "iron" puffy little sleeves on our pretty little shirts. I'm so thankful the smell of spray starch hasn't changed in the past 40 years. Thanks for the memory. Niagra still smells the same!

Hugs,
Penny Sue

The scent-triggered memories are the best, aren't they?

Yes, I still use a cothes line --I love the smell and feel. I told my daughter to use it for the cloth diapers and it took the breastfed poopee stains right out, every time ;-)
