of all the placesse you go regularly,ernet. the dry cleaning relationship's the most bizarre. you give each other the same thing over and over again. he gives it to you, you give it to him, he gives it back to you. it's like it's half his shirt. he has it as much as you do. you ought to shop together. "what do you think of this shirt?" "that would look good with a light starch." the only warning label people respect is "dry clean only." speed limits, lung cancer, cigarette warnings-- your very life is at stake. people go, "ah, the hell with it!" but "dry clean only"-- "don't put that in the wash! are you crazy?" accomplishing even little things can become major victories.
