you drink a coca-cola from a bottle, wash it out, fill it with water and cork it with this thingamajig

then, you sprinkle the water on clothes, sheets, pillowcases, etc., place those items in a plastic bag and let them sit for a couple of hours. after this, you iron the clothes, sheets, pillowcases, etc.

this was the process before steam irons were invented

my job was to iron the pillow cases and my dad’s white handkerchiefs

I imagine a child. That child is me. I can reconstruct and vividly remember portions of my own childhood. I can see, taste, smell, feel, and hear them.
