My first reaction when a buddy of mine shared this link with me was “Of course this is a British thing”. That’s probably why I had the immediate desire to grab my fancy iron and go on a hike.
No, they aren’t really kidding. People actually do this. Extreme ironing combines the thrill of doing, well, just about anything exhilarating with the “satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt”. And that’s all well and good, but I’m thinking I should start extreme tea drinking. Because balancing a full china tea set and finding a way to bring water to a boil on the top of a mountain is just way more exciting.
