The Laundry Day Massacre
3/1/2017 11:31:53 am
If you have spoken with me for more than five seconds, you’d know that I have become borderline obsessed with Viceland. For those of you who don’t know, Viceland is the television station that is owned by the bizarre magazine, Vice. Essentially, all of these programs are intense, hard hitting, bizarre and feel a lot like a liberal arts student’s sociology term paper. One in particular I have been drawn to is Hate Thy Neighbor, hosted by comedian Jamali Maddix. This show follows Jamali around the world as he spends time with people that he says “live on the extreme side of life”, meaning extremist groups, and examines the racial tensions that exist throughout the world. Although the content sounds like it would be very intense and evocative, Jamali – being a comedian – always finds a way to make light of the situation. He is a very tall, slightly awkward looking, fully bearded man from England who has (in my opinion) an adorable, slight lisp. (Okay maybe I am a bit biased because I have a small crush on him).

Sandrine liked to hang from the skirt of her mother’s dress like the wool hangs to a sheep: always attached but drifting slightly in the breeze. There was safety in being so close to her. It made her mother’s work harder to with the extra body bumping into her and weighing her down but she endured for her daughter’s sake. Mother’s make sacrifices all the time, this one was easier than most.

A Clothesline of Memories
3/12/2017 07:37:14 pm
When I look at a clothespin, I think of being a kid again running around and playing in the slip and slide in my backyard with my older brother. We always would set up the slip and slide under my mom's old clothes line. I would find clothes pins all over the yard and before we used to slip and slide I would check the yard for them before we would be rolling around the yard. If we slid over a clothes pin, it would not be a good feeling. As a kid, all I was worried about was having fun on a hot summer day, and a clothes pin was not going to get in the way of that. Can you imagine a wooden clothes pin skimming your stomach in the yard?

Almost broken clothes pin, still able to hold up the white linens. Close to giving up, yet not quite there. The possibility lingers to fall apart, to dirty the white linens. The option is tormenting, but the clothes… the pin still manages to hold. A weight which weighs heavy and heavier over time. A weight it must hold for quite some time. It gains relief when you pinch it close to drop the white linens into your hands. I am a clothes pin, close to giving up, not quite there. A full-time student with work. Not a single day off. The idea to let go. I still have one degree, will two more be beneficial. My body aches, but if I took my “job” to a “career”, I would have more money than ever with a societal career. A broken idea, such as the clothes pin. Why hang a rope line and hope the clothes pin withstands the weather? You can simply just use a dryer. The clothes pin is simple, yet it’s meanings deep. I hold the weight of many, not letting anyone down, including myself. The product of clean linens, a clean slate. A future brighter than the white of linens. A clothes pin withstands the test of time. I am a clothes pin.

Two pieces of wood clasped together by a single wire. It is a simple contraption that holds clothes, pictures, or even a bag of chips closed, it also holds memories for me. Grasping the item in my hand I flash back to standing in the drive way of my family vacation house. I can almost feel the rays of sun peeking through the branches to touch my freckled shoulders. I can almost smell the fresh linen being being hung by grammy. I can almost hear the wiffle ball hitting the duct tape bat. A clothes pin that holds more than wet sheets, its a clothes pin that holds priceless memories.

I look at my clothes pin and it reminds me of so much. One being work. We use a clothes pins with children's names on them. We place the clothespins on a chart with 5-6 different colors. Each color is given a title like "Good Day!" or "Call home :( ." I look at this clothes pin and think of how hard my students work every day to get their clothes pins on "Good Day". I also think of my students who struggle everyday to keep their clothespins away from "Call home." I think of how these clothes pins seem so insignificant to others, while to my students, these clothespins are sometimes the focus of their day. This clothes pin determines wether they are excited to go home, or terrified. This one clothes pin has the power to bring tears to my students eyes. This clothes pin also has the power to make my students proud of themselves. So much power in one little clothes pin that you or I may look over as nothing.

The clothes pin brings back memories of being a child. It does so because it makes me think of the pool we used to have. The tarp over it was kept on by clothes pins, and each year taking them off was a symbol of fun to come.

My brown color withers away over the winter and I am forgotten. To be tossed aside is depressing. I lay here in box hidden and haven't had a second glance and wondering when the sun would come back out so I could get out and perform my duty. My metal clip still stays in tack as do I. I hope by the summer I will be able to be of some use again. I help do a big job for such a little item. The divots on the inside of my clip have been worn down. I see petticoats and bonnets along with overalls. I get picked up and swung on to the rope and stand there and hold on tightly. Blankets weigh me down, but I stand tall for hours and hours. I don’t mind since I am outside enjoying the sun. That’s what is so great about the sun, it hardens me and makes me strong. One may forget about us and the rain may come but we are taken away just in time. I know that the items will be put out on the line again the next time the sun comes and the laundry is done every few days and that is more than the winter so it is worth it. I sway on the rope like a swing. A strong gust of wind may come and tries to knock me off my post, but stand my ground. It is not until the human comes to remove me and put me back in my box and do it all over again. Sometimes a younger child may put me to use and can't always reach and is a struggle to grab on to the line, but I make it up there, don't worry. The years go by and I and I see shorts tank tops and yet the blanket is still here hung by a new face. I can't believe that the summer has come and gone. I do my job as a clothespin and I am proud of that.
