“The Flamingo Cupboard”

by Tom Perrotta

Clarence brought his laundry down to Mrs. Finley at nine o’clock on Saturday morning. It was part of their arrangement. As the man of the house, he was sometimes called upon to perform minor chores that required a hammer or screwdriver; he also shoveled the front walk when it snowed and took out the garbage on Wednesday nights. In return, Mrs. Finley did his laundry every Saturday.
