The one household item I never owned

The one household item I never owned

Is it weird that I never owned an iron? Maybe I was too dependent on the dry cleaners, or were we simply walking around wrinkled?

Ironically, the reason I ended up getting one was not even to prevent creases and folds, but for an art project with my daughter.

My daughter spent many hours creating these.  I ironed the pieces together at the end.

Maybe even funnier is I asked my mom to borrow her iron (never even thinking to buy one)  and she was the one who bought me my first iron.
