Extreme Ironing
New sport of the day: Extreme Ironing. The idea is to take an iron and ironing board to some remote location and iron there.

My thought? Ironing on Mount Everest is nothing compared to trying to get a shirt ironed while getting dressed, cooking breakfast, packing lunch, and making the bed, all with a 20-minute deadline. And in this sport, the quality of the ironing matters. (I have my doubts that garments ironed underwater come out very crisp.)

For experienced athletes, add toddlers underfoot.

The Monday Morning Housewife Pentathlon: coming soon to an extreme sporting venue near you.
