Chicago Tribune ^ | 12/26/12 | Rosemary Regina Sobol

A 26-year-old woman came home on Christmas to find a man she’d never seen before folding her laundry in her Irving Park neighborhood apartment, police said.

**SNIP**

The woman called police and officers got to the scene and interviewed Edge, who told them someone let him inside and asked him to clean the home, police said. He was arrested at 9:40 p.m. at the home.

Edge is a sexual predator who was convicted in Lake County of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a 15-year-old, a crime that occurred when he was 51, according to the Illinois Sex Offender website.

” Should all sex offenders be classified as mentally ill?”

***

Personally, I think they should be strung up by the gonads.

Okay, so this story plays right into making me feel guilty for all the times I have arrived home and wished to find someone cleaning the house and/or folding the laundry. I will have to be careful what I wish for, as they say.

Well, you have to be verrrrry specific when you wish for something. You can wish for an Angel to fold your laundry, just make sure it’s not a Hell’s angel. Make sure they fold the laundry your way not theirs....

At the end it takes less time to fold your own laundry than to figure out the specifics of your wish.

HA you are right.

Yeah.... undershirts and Tshirts in thirds/thirds. Turn over the minimal amount of the socks cuffs to hold them together so they don’t stretch out. Handkerchiefs: fold into squares at each possible fold line.... HA Folding for more than just myself.

And I have had plenty of blessings, answered prayers over the years.

My guess is he did something dirty to her dainties and was just washing/folding them to cover up his deeds. He didn’t expect them to get home so early.

And what of those offenders (female) who have no gonads? What should we string them up by?

Well, you have to be verrrrry specific when you wish for something.

Did you ever see the X-Files regarding that subject? I didn't watch the X-Files much, but that one was great. Made me laugh. Description below:

Je Souhaite X-Files Episode

Anson Stokes, an apathetic employee at a Missouri self storage facility, is yelled at by his boss to clean out an old and dusty shipping container. To his surprise, he finds a woman wrapped in a rug. His boss comes to check on him and while he is yelling for Anson his mouth disappears. FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) speak with the boss, Jay Gilmore, after surgery to fix his mouth which has left him disfigured and with a speech impediment. They question Stokes' brother Leslie at his home, which inexplicably has a boat in the front yard. It is revealed that the woman in the storage container is in the Stokes' kitchen. Mulder and Scully search the container and find old antiques and a picture of the previous owner with the woman from the apartment. The woman turns out to be a genie. Stokes is angry that he wasted his first two wishes; Stokes had previously wished for his boss to stop talking—causing his mouth to disappear—and for a boat. The boat, however, was not placed in water and Stokes is still forced to pay taxes on it. The genie suggests that Anson should give his physically handicapped brother the ability to walk as his third wish but he, instead, wishes for the ability to turn invisible at will. Anson, in his invisible form, runs out into the street and is killed by a truck.

Scully does the autopsy on the invisible body by covering it in powder. Mulder, meanwhile, researches the owner of the container. He learns that the man in the picture was an extremely wealthy and lucky for a short period, before he died with a giant oversized penis. Mulder believes the woman in the picture is responsible for everything, and believes she is a genia, or a female genie. Mulder goes to the Stokes residence and asks Leslie to hand over the genia, which is kept in a box. It turns out, however, that the genia is not in the box, but back in the storage facility. Mulder also finds the genia next to Benito Mussolini in a photo from the 1930s and Richard Nixon in a photo from the 1960s, two men that had a lot of power and lost it in a bad way.

Leslie takes possession of the genia and asks for his brother to be returned to life. Anson is returned, but in a decaying state, complete with injuries from the crash. Leslie's second wish is for Anson to talk, which results in Anson screaming at the top of his lungs and telling his brother that he is cold. Back at the morgue, Scully finds the body has disappeared and Mulder suspects it is because of Leslie's wish. They go to the Stokes residence and Anson blows the house up trying to light the stove in an attempt to warm up. Mulder questions Jenn, the genia, who says she's 500 years old. According to her, she gained her powers after wishing for great power and long life from another genie. She also says that Mulder unrolled her so he now has three wishes of his own. Mulder wishes for peace on earth and she wipes out the entire human population. With his second wish, Mulder undoes his first wish. Mulder then writes down his third wish to be very specific. However, just before making the final wish, Mulder realizes that the power of a genie should not be used to force people to be good, and so he ultimately wishes for Jenn to be free.[1]

"The Edge" from U2.

"The Edge" can do my laundry, including the dainty things, as long as Bono mows the lawn.

This story brings so many questions to mind...

1) Was he doing a good job?
2) Did he expect a tip?
3) Does he still play guitar for U2?

"Turn over the minimal amount of the socks cuffs to hold them together so they don’t stretch out."

Mr. hummingbird ties the two socks into a knot at their centers.

Is this okay? Seems to work okay but I want to make sure it is okay!

HA, HA, HA on socks!

Did she wait until the house was clean and the laundry done before calling the cops?

I am pretty sure that Mr. Hummingbird’s sock “folding” method would not sit well with Mr. NEMDF!
