how to fold a fitted sheet

There are points in my life where I stop and say to myself, Now I feel like a real adult. Like when I bought my first car, or when I took that car for its first oil change. Or when I opened a savings account, or purchased my first washer and dryer. Or like when I learned how to fold a fitted sheet properly.


I had no idea this was a thing until my mother casually mentioned the possibility to me. She just threw this tidbit into conversation as though it would not blow my mind that one could actually fold a fitted sheet in a way that didn't leave it looking like a forgotten socks in a washing machine. I don't even remember what was being said in our initial conversation, because I immediately made my mom stop mid-sentence to elaborate on what was surely the impossible.  I didn't even know I could ask myself how to fold a fitted sheet. The notion just didn't exist before! Once out of the packaging, the sheet lives the rest of its life as a crumpled ball, right?
