My wife and kids are visiting family, so I've been home alone now for a week. This means that everyday I come home, take off my white coat, put my back pack down, and take off my tie and socks. Then, I make a pile.
Not being used to having the house to myself, it's bizarre that stuff stays where I leave it. The house doesn't mess itself up, but my piles of socks and ties don't put themselves away, either.
