Bachelor tips, or how to live an easier life

    As a bachelor, the world conspires to make your life as difficult as possible. I've decided to put together a short list of tips to make your life as a bachelor a little easier:
  1. Cleanliness is in the eye of the woman: remember, no matter what you do, you will never get anything as clean as a woman will. You may think your house is clean, but a woman, any woman, will zero in on that last sock you didn't see because it was all the way under your couch. You see, women have an extra sense they don't like to talk about. It is hyper-capable and gives them the ability to see through objects and detect minute particles of dust. What this means is that unless you have a woman coming over for a visit, clean only until you see no more dirt.
  2. Dishes are self-drying: unless you have an automatic dishwasher, there is no logical reason to dry dishes except after a party that produced a lot of dirty dishes and you're out of room in the dish holder. In fact, keeping dishes in the holder after washing them until they're needed for another meal is perfectly acceptable if the lot of them aren't piled up so high there's a danger they'll fall off and break.
  3. Shower curtains are not fashion statements: unless you're a decorating freak trying to match his bathroom to his living room, $2.99 transparent shower curtains with $1.99 semi-transparent shower curtain liners are perfectly acceptable on a day-to-day basis. They never have to be washed, merely replaced when dirty, and the curtain itself will last five times longer than the liner. If you know there's a woman coming for a visit, you can pull that pretty shower curtain with flowers on them out of storage and hang them for a day or so. Avoid getting it wet, though, since it'll just cause you trouble.
  4. Laundry bins are perfectly acceptable for short term clothes storage: after you've done your laundry, there's no real point wasting time folding clothes and putting it all away only to pull it all out later and using it. This is especially true in the winter when your shirts are not the topmost layer of clothing you wear. The exception, of course, is dress shirts. Those should be pulled out and hung because even the wrinkle-free shirts will wrinkle if you leave them in a bin for a week or more.

I hope these few tips will make life a little easier for you. If you have any additional suggestions, send them along, and I'll add them to the list.
