There is a classical English expression which says, “hung out to dry”. This idiom is used when you’ve been left alone to face a situation—especially a dangerous or unpleasant situation—the people who just abandoned you have hung you out to dry.
Example: Right before the company went bankrupt, the CEO sold all of his stock, thereby leaving everyone else there hung out to dry.
In today’s post, I literally mean that clothes were hung out under the sun to dry. In Panama, 99.9 percent of the population do not use electric dryers to dry up their clothes. Instead they hang their clothes with pins on wires or plastic lines and allow Apollo to complete the drying process. Millions of dollars are saved each year by using Nature to dry up our clothes and help us clean up the global warming mess.
Below are a cluster of socks hanging under the sun, thus the heading of the post, “Hung Out To Dry” which has nothing to do with the idiomatic phrase indicated earlier.
