One of the questions was this: How are you actually supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
The rocket scientist simply responded that she had no idea. And they left it at that! I was like, "What?! You can't do that? I've wanted to know this my whole life, and you totally crushed the hope that you allowed me to have for a split second."
I decided that there had to be a solution. So I googled it and I found this gem from Martha Stewart. I was so excited that I emailed the hosts at How To Do Everything with a link to the site, and they actually responded! I felt super cool. This is was Ian Chillag said back to me:
That's great, Bryan. This only further justifies my plan to replace Mike with Martha Stewart.How cool is that? I, too, admire Martha's ingenuity, but I found Martha's instructions to be a little confusing, specifically steps two and three. Here's how I do it:
|Turn the sheet inside out and stick your hands in two corners|
|Bring your hands close together|
|Flip the corner of your right hand on to the corner of the your left hand|
|Put your free hand in the doubled-up corner on the bottom and bring it close to the one on the top|
|Again, flip the corners from your right hand onto the corners on your left hand|
|Now, all four corners should be piled on top of each other. Fold the sheet so that the elastic is hidden in the middle|
|Now you have a tidy looking fitted sheet!|
