Wash Me

According to Billboard Top Hits: 1987 pop star Belinda Carlisle, “Heaven is a Place on Earth“. Lindsey and I found heaven.

Suds & Duds is the kind of place that, when discussing it, you may find yourself having the following conversation:

“Hey, what are you doing this fine Saturday?”

“Going to the laundromat.”

“Awesome, can I go with you?”

“Sure, it’s always a party at the laundromat!”

Because it’s amazing. Behold:

  • Restaurant-style booths
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • It’s a 2-minute drive from the house
  • It’s probably the cleanest place in Humboldt County?
  • There’s an ice cream shop in the same building…
  • …And,You can leave your laundry there! They’ll even fold it, for a fee

In this world we’re just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
But I’m not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh, heaven is a place on earth $3.75 a wash. that’s right!

A Halloween Story for Loleta

On Cannibal Island Road,
they’ll never find your bones.
They’ll use your skin,
to keep warm, and then,
they eat ice cream from your skull.

Out where the cannibals roam,
you’re welcome in their homes.
But please don’t be rude,
when they pass you the food,
and tell you it’s Uncle Jerome.

The dancer was a real treat,
she twirled and laughed so sweet.
They had so much fun,
when she tried to run,
the best part was the feet.

Don’t judge when they pass the spaghetti,
and you notice it looks like confetti.
The meat tastes real lean,
and the noodles unclean,
it was made out of stringy aunt Betty.

On Cannibal Island Road,
the farms are not up to code.
You won’t find any hogs,
nor cows, sheep, or dogs,
just rows and rows of tombstones.

If you’re traveling down this way,
you’re more than welcome to stay.
Of course, you can’t leave,
and you’d better believe,
you’ll make some great crudités.
