The NOBLE art of......ironing or "repassage".....

I can't just stand by and listen to this ancient and noble art being maligned.
Personally, I like nothing better than a crispy piece of freshly ironed linen in my bed, on my body....I like feeling good.....What's with these modern, militant, masochistic females who have never felt the sensuality of fresh linen gliding down their hips,  who have never felt......GOOD!
 Don't they learn it any more at school? This noble art?
Just what do they learn in "Domestic Science" classes these arts exist anymore....they don't learn cooking, that's for sure, except how to order a doggy bag, open a microwave oven door (and still manage to burn it) ...don't ask me how, seems always to be the fault of the "equipment"

Everybody does - or should - do it..........everybody.........and once they've started, they love it.
And.....while I'm upsetting the thoroughly modern young millycents', how about sewing and darning......?Once upon a time it was a social event, nowadays the only social event is winging on Facebook about the price of new socks......darn the old ones.....!
Come on, womenfolk, if us fellows can do it - you letting us get away with the traditional lady leisure activities....?
and .....washing....? We can do it - you lot can't!  and that's why menfolk are looking so much more distinguished nowadays.....aaaah yes - the good old days, remember having a good natter down at the river......?
Now the natter is still there, on the telephone, us fellows are wandering around looking either very distinguished (in which case everybody knows we are Batchelors) or we're wandering around looking like tramps(in which case everybody knows we're happily married)
Where the devil is the "proud-of-hubby" thing....?......
I know - I can hear you all saying..." proud of WHAT"....!
Well - there are some who are STILL proud, and generally, their husbands can "bend 'em...."!
....Lucky lady.....!
All this is in your hands, ladies - start IRONING again......!

YOU'LL LOVE IT..........!
