Exchange Exemplar: "Do Your Laundry Or You'll Die Alone"

Parents always hope at least ONE little piece of wisdom they share with their children will stick. 

But they always share more than one piece.  Becky Blades wrote a whole bunch of things to her daughter as she departed for college, and that turned into a book: Do Your Laundry Or You'll Die Alone

Way to play the lonely card, mom.  Book and pictures provide laughs and even a few tears.  Becky Blades visited in mid-2014, and we replay that interview here.
