Friday Flash 55 - Jaipur Iron Man - July 27, 2012

Hot as hell in Jaipur,
Outside, under a tree,
This man busily irons,
And is paid in an Indian rupee.

And if it isn't hot enough,
His iron has charcoal heat,
But he smiles and keeps on working,
His handiwork nice and neat.

Thankfully, my wardrobe, 
for the most part, wash and wear,
leaves me without a care.







I am participating in Mr.KnowItAll's Friday Flash 55

  1. How impressive. May time and life continue to treat him kind. I used to earn my first pocket money at age 15 ironing clothes.

    1. He always has a smile on his face and a hello for me. I HATE ironing.

    1. You've lost none of your old spunk. Even ICU
      and a few Nurse Ratchets couldn't change you!

  4. Every family used this before.

    But my mother used a smaller one.

    1. This one looks so heavy...perhaps a smaller one wouldn't be so bad...but I hated ironing, period. I still do. I love the modern fabric that really doesn't need it.
