How Is A Manhattan Preschool-Age Child Different From A Washer/Dryer?

A; Good old-fashioned bribes can still get a washer/dryer in.

The influx of young families and rising real estate prices has spurred demand, but many buildings in the city still forbid private washer/dryers. Avoids the allegedly dire threat of "sudsing, they say."

But many stores will happily repack them in refrigerator boxes, and for a few hundred bucks, many supers will just as happily look the other way when the fridges go up the elevator. You suburbanites may now laugh.

We just moved to the suburbs and I gotta tell you: very few things in my life give me as much pleasure as (1) pulling into my garage at night and (2) doing laundry.

I'm laughing very hard, I assure you!!
Just to rub it in... our new whirlpool duet washer and dryer are being delivered on Friday.

[um, mine, too, only I had them disassembled and put into 40 shopping bags from Barney's. -ed.]
