I wonder what ‘extra-large’ would be

Piece of a dream:

I’m in a laundromat — or what would be called a launderette — in London, circa 1965. (The dream was even in black and white.) A sign tells me the costs of doing various loads, and I notice the Brits have different descriptions than Americans do for sizing. A “small” load is “regular.” A “medium” load is “variety.”

And a “large” load, for reasons I can’t fathom long after I’ve woken up, is “Paraguayan.”

I’m traveling right now. I’ll definitely have a Paraguayan load of laundry to do when I get back.
