Bella walks towards her local launderette, with a determined gaze. She starts loading the washing machine. Closes its door shut, sits and wait for its cycle to begin. Peculiar sounds come from different sources. The laundrette’s owner splashing the wet mop on the floor. A bucket of water being kicked, washing and drying machine knobs being twisted. Bell going off as front door is pushed opened. Pages being turned by a boy reading his MAD magazine. Slowly, all these different sounds build into an uniform beat. She puts her old fashioned headphones on and falls into her daydream fantasy of disco lights and uncoordinated dancing. Until the push of a washing machine button, snaps them out of Bella’s fantasy. Life resumes to normality.
