You know the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: "Did he have passion?"*

Henry Maytag
Washer Extraordinaire
Born: Unknown
Died: June 13, 2010

Henry Maytag, prominent Pennsylvania Avenue Washer, died yesterday from complications of filling his basin with cold/cold water. His age was unknown. Quiet but loud enough to be heard, Maytag never gave signs of declining health. Even in his final moments he worked on filling his basin to wash a load of dirty colors. It is unknown if he knew his end was coming, but whether or not he did, the courageous Maytag secretly clung to the belief that he would wash one more load of laundry.

Asked about the loss of her dear washing companion, Lildonbro, prominent blogger, described Maytag as a faithful washer in the last days of his life.

Maytag passed away quietly, surrounded by dirty clothes, lint and family. Currently the cause of death is unknown and there were no preexisting medical conditions.
I never got to say goodbye. I never got to complete one last wash. I don't think this is covered by the home warranty. I know a lot of time hasn't passed, but I don't want to be alone, I am already shopping around for the next Pennsylvania Avenue Washer.

Weep not, Lildonbro, for surely dear Maytag shall live again, albeit as a paper clip, or a toaster, or some other household appliance.

What!?! You are moderating my comments? See if I'll comment on your blog again.

Brianna said... sure are having a string of bad luck. I'm sorry about Henry. I know he was well loved.

Lildonbro said...

Thanks guys.

Brianna - I have to moderate, otherwise there is always a comment from some shady character writing in Asian characters with bad links. It's to protect the public :)

Did I tell you my dishwasher melted on the inside? I smelled something burning and opened Franny Frigidaire up and it was MELTED! We are in the market for a new one.

Our washing machine is a cheap-o Hotpoint. We ordered it from the Home Depot and they came out and set it up and all. I think it was like $329 or something.
