Ladies, how many times have you done the weekly laundry, hung the clothes out on the line to dry, sat back to watch some daytime TV show, then had everything ruined when an unexpected thunderstorm completely drenches your washing that was almost dry?
It's a safe bet it's happened more than once!
And that's exactly what happened to one woman on Wednesday in Green Bay.
Wendy Washbrook, an accountant who lives in the city, washed her work blouses and skirts, a tight-fitting sweater that shows off her pert breasts, a pair of figure-hugging black slacks that she knows draws her male colleagues' attentions every time she walks past them in the office, her sports bras and her thongs, and hung them out in her garden. There was a fresh wind, and she was confident they would soon be dry, and ready for ironing.
Wendy went indoors and decided to read for a while, but it wasn't long before she was snoozing, then snoring. The gray clouds she hadn't noticed earlier, now turned black, and thunder rumbled a warning she didn't hear.
"I closed my eyes for the briefest moment, and slept the sleep of the dead.
I dreamt that I had washed all my clothes, hung them out, and sat down for a few minutes. I could hear rain hammering down outside, but, in my dream, the sun was out. Then I snapped awake and realized what was happening. I'm such a scatterbrain, at times!"
Her boyfriend, Dan, agreed:
"She's such a scatterbrain, at times, but hey, those thongs!"
