There are two long-held Thanksgiving traditions in college. The first of these is the well-known Turkey Drop, in which all of our beloved freshmen run home to their high school sweethearts and promptly dump their asses.

Kind of makes you misty-eyed, doesn’t it?

At the moment, there is not a single coin-op washing machine running in Isla Vista or the dorms, which leads us to the second college Thanksgiving tradition: the Holiday Laundry Stretch. Right now you have six days to go before you head home and four clean pairs of underwear.

Can you make it?

Thursday’s forecast: Leave some space between seats in lecture this week. Victory doesn’t smell so hot.
