It's no secret that I do a lot of laundry around here. And in that time, I have washed and/or dried some unusual items, including:
*business card holder
Okay, I should explain the cat. Once, several years ago, I was moving clothes from the washer to the dryer. Apparently, Tiger (a very curious kitty-cat) hopped into the dryer when I wasn't looking. I turned on the dryer and started to walk away. I immediately heard, "Thump-thud. Thump-thud."
I knew that couldn't be good. But when I opened the dryer, I certainly didn't expect to see a cat hop out. But besides being a bit dizzy and disoriented, he was fine.
Well, he only has 3 legs. But I swear I had nothing to do with that!
The latest item to show up in my laundry?
A corn cob.
Somehow the Boy managed to leave a corn cob in his pocket all day long. It went through the washer, but when I was putting the clothes into the dryer, I noticed something sticking out of the pocket.
Luckily he had already taken most of the corn off of it...so the damage was minimal. But still. A corn cob? In the laundry? Who does that?
Little boys, that's who.
