The production of Caroline, or Change currently running at Center Stage sears the audience's hearts like a hot iron. First, this show pulls and warps the delicate tissue. Then, it leaves a scorch mark. Finally, it burns clean through. And, like all such traumas, there's a slight, delayed reaction before we start to sting. We're so taken by the playfulness of the singing appliances (such as a washing machine, dryer and radio), so entranced by the humor, so swept up by the loveliness of the performers' voices, that we don't notice until the next day, that there is a spot in our hearts that is alive with sensation, and that is tender when pressed.

Keeping the washing machine happy is my responsibility.I care about its innards and its outards. Lately I've even had flashes of interest in its product, clean clothes. My curiosity in the clean-clothes area has been confined to strategic theories of fighting lint.I was recently introduced to the concept of classifying laundry either as "lint giving" or "lint receiving." These two groups must be kept apart.This concept has given me a whole new way of viewing the world. And it keeps me amused in my many idle moments.

It is hard enough to face your birthday without having your house remind you that when old things get old they fall apart. But for me the reminder of the ill effects of aging was right down in the laundry room. The old family washing machine tub had suddenly lost its ability to spin.Birthdays are supposed to be time for celebrating and reflecting, not fixing broken appliances. But pouting about my bad luck wasn't going to get the clothes washed. So I spent part of my birthday tinkering with the washing machine innards.

They're called a "dream team" - new leaders in France, Britain and Germany who just might restore greater unity within Europe and with the United States. That lineup has the potential to bring fresh inspiration to stale global problems, even as the U.S. moves closer to choosing its new leader. This has happened in transatlantic relations before. The 1980s was dominated by a new set of leaders: Britain's Margaret Thatcher, Germany's Helmut Kohl, France's Francois Mitterrand and America's Ronald Reagan.

Grasping both the silliness and tragedy of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last week about clean water in Rapanos vs. United States requires some imagination: Imagine you have nine family members and all are home for a holiday. The old washing machine springs a leak. Four family members try to find the leak and patch it up. Four other family members stand around and complain that it wasn't a good washing machine when you bought it in 1972 and that it wasn't fixed properly in 1977. The ninth member of the family can't make up his mind whether he is going to whine or help.

Who says your shoes have to match? Not the Majorcan shoe company Camper, which features a funky line of asymmetrical footwear called Twins. These shoes are perfect couples, different yet complementary. For example, a pair of flip-flops pictures whole fruit on the bottom of one shoe and halved fruit on the other, or a pair has a design or phrase that carries from one shoe to the other (She loves me ... She loves me not.) If you're tired of scuffing about in the same plain summer sandals, these are sure to add a surprise to your wardrobe.

One of the perks of this column is the chance to try out electronic gadgets -- especially during the holidays, when gadget shopping reaches the frenzy stage. After all these years, however, it takes a pretty good gadget to get my attention. Here are a couple that passed the test this year because (a) they solve real, if not terribly important, problems, and (b) they're fun to use. By coincidence, each costs $299, which seems to be a popular limit for impulse-buying these days. Verizon G'zOne Type-V Rugged Phone.

How best to describe Dizzy Issie's, an agreeably ramshackle bar and restaurant wedged onto a corner of Remington Avenue and 30th Street, near Johns Hopkins? Perhaps a partial listing of the decor will paint a picture. Downstairs, customers will find two extremely worn barbershop chairs, a Charlie McCarthy doll suspended near the front door, plastic hearts dangling in the windows, and Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. The ceilings are stamped tin, painted a rust color, the floors are gray linoleum.

A common college dilemma: You're down to your last T-shirt and need to do laundry. But the only idle machine has a load of wet clothes in it, the owner of which is nowhere to be found. Do you take the clothes out of the washer, grabbing a mysterious lump that potentially contains gym shorts, old socks and who knows what? Or do you sit and wait? That problem may go the way of the VCR at Goucher, Villa Julie and other colleges that have replaced coin-operated washers and dryers with swipe-card models that send students an e-mail when their load is done.

When it opens a $19.5 million research and training institute in South Baltimore today, the National Federation of the Blind hopes to usher in a new era of empowerment for the blind -- training more teachers of blind children, offering new employment programs and reversing a decline in the use of Braille. The institute, a 170,000- square-foot structure of brick and seafoam glass next to the federation's national headquarters, will house math and science summer camps where blind teen-agers will learn from National Aeronautics and Space Administration scientists.

It could have been me.That's the first thing that came to mind when I read about a guy named Guy who was arrested in Chippewa Falls, Wis., for shooting his washing machine.Seems old Guy got in some kind of a beef with the machine, which escalated to the point where he pushed it down a flight of stairs, into the driveway, pulled out a gun and shot it three times.The story didn't say what the spat was over, who started it, what condition the washer is in or if this type of thing goes on a lot in Chippewa Falls.

I have a recurring nightmare: I'm leaving on a big trip, and I haven't finished packing. I need to do a load of laundry, water the plants, eat something and take a shower. I don't know where my binoculars are, and I forgot to get cash. The clock is ticking; my boss calls; the cab comes. I wake in tangled sheets. It's surprising that I should be so haunted, because I'm an experienced traveler and by nature organized. I rarely forget anything important. Still, the more you travel, the easier it is to get blase.
