I was having a discussion with my colleague about a small box we have that holds all the little bits and pieces for a demo we give. It's quite a well travelled box, it's been to Sweden, Germany, Greece, Switzerland and a few places in the UK. Now it's about to make another journey to Puerto Rico.

God knows where it came from, it was a Motorola phone box, but it's got a stack of old postage labels attached to it.

I said we should have taken pictures of it at each location. Then, he told me about this website - Extreme Ironing. I'd never heard of it, and he's a Greek guy, so at first I thought he said Extreme Irony and I wasn't too impressed.

Then he explained, "no, Ironing" (I still heard Irony), but then he used the international sign-language for "Ironing" and all was explained.

I'll never look at my iron in the same way again!

You want extreme ironing, Mark??? Extreme ironng! Try a big family including several who like FRILLS and discard their clothes like fallen leaves, make it their mission to crease clothes just hung in a wardrobe and always need that particular top in 2 hours, washed and ironed. This is a tale every woman will be familiar with sooner or later in life, a word of advice once you are married, do not mention "extreme ironing" to your spouse in any context, unless you are happy to visit the burns unit on a regular basis.
(Get your cheap frills elsewhere.)

Someone tried to make my life not worth living and NOW they're trying to kill me!

Extreme Ironing... Is that what they did when they burned an iron hole in my Armani suit?
