From the American Heritage Dictionary:
A group of 144 items; 12 dozen.
I offer 144 diapers. It’s a somewhat of a mixed bag (136 Seventh Generation #4’s and 8 Fuzzi Bunz). I thought about making a design – You know, a happy face or something. But c’mon – they’re diapers! And I couldn’t imagine why they’d make me smile.
- Dense; profuse.
- Glaringly obvious: gross injustice.
Brother is 2 1/2 and still in diapers. While the rate of diaper changes has slowed since his infancy on average I have changed about 8 diapers a day for just over 900 days. That’s 7,300 diapers changes. Certainly that is a ‘profuse’ amount.
Also, considering a diaper change takes on average 4 minutes (including fetching supplies and catching the child). I calculate a whopping 29,200 minutes I’ve spent performing this staple of motherhood. That’s 486.6 hours or 20 continuous days! I have two children so 40 days of my lifetime has been set aside exclusively for wiping someone else’s fanny…. Not
fanny funny. It’s a gross injustice.
Do I really need to expound on why diapers fit this part of the definition?
