What did you find exciting as a child that you now find mundane?
I used to love cleaning the lint screen in my grandmother’s dryer when I was young. There was something very satisfying about gathering up a whole sheet of lint into a little ball. Ever since I started doing my own laundry, however, it has just been one more thing to do. When the lint is hard to get off, I can’t just stop playing with it and move on to something else.
What sorts of things did you once find fascinating or exciting that are now just part of your everyday life?
