This article in today's New York Times made me think of two different Sex and the City episodes:
1) When Carrie's sliver Manolo D'Orsay stilettos are stolen from Tatum O'Neal's apartment because she was forced to take them off because of "outside dirt."
2) When Carrie goes to a party and the hostess does not serve any drinks that are brown or red because of all of her white furniture.
These dudes have an all-white apartment and thus they take off their clothes and put on shorts and t-shirts when they walk in the door. They even have a laundry room right next to the front door. Why? NYC dirt that they pick up on their clothing.
Hmmm, I do like to put on my lobster pajama pants as soon as I walk in the door. Maybe these guys are onto something. I have been appalled at the grime that comes off on a Bijore wet wipe from my face after tromping around Manhattan. Also, after walking around my house barefoot, I like to wash my feet before they touch my sheets. TMI? Does that tell you more about the cleanliness level of my floors than my OCD? Anyway, what do you think of these dirt warriors?
