On a recent tour of a large university, the tour guide, a junior, told of a freshman who had gone down in history as the biggest mama’s boy ever. The reason: he didn’t know how to do his laundry and declined to learn. Instead, he sent all of it home for his mother to wash, dry, iron, and fold. She sent it back to him in bundles throughout his college career. That student has achieved mythic status, but perhaps not the mythology he desired.
