I heard Jerry Seinfeld once talking about how when clothes are in the wash, it's like they are going to a party.  It's hilarious, every time I hear it I stop and listen, because it just cracks me up to give inanimate objects personalities.  If you haven't seen it, please stop, and go watch it here.
