A mother and teenage daughter in Port Dover, Ont., set off for the laundromat together, each with a load of laundry. The mother was so busy with her own chores that she didn't pay much attention to what her daughter was up to until the girl’s load was finished. To mother’s horror, she’d washed several woolen skirts with the machine set for the hottest water possible. But the teenager unloaded them and held them up. one by one. with delight, crowing. "Look—miniskirts!”
