It was basketball media day on Wednesday at UCLA, and prized freshman recruit Lonzo Ball from Chino Hills went through the usual question and answer routine from media members.
Then I got my chance to ask the toughest question for a freshman in college: Do you know how to do laundry?
“I just learned how to do it,” he said. “The first time was kind of a struggle.”
No, it wasn’t a struggle. Let’s say it was a little disaster.
“You definitely have to put it in the washer before the dryer,” he said. “One time I put it in the dryer before the washer and I had to do it all over again.”
But Ball is a fast learner.
“I had my mom do it for so many years, but I’m growing up now and I got to do it myself,” he said.
So the key to doing laundry is . . .
“Put it in the washer first,” Ball said.
