Rule #273:  If your pockets are full of bark and gravel from the playground, please tell me BEFORE I put your pants in the washer.

Thanks, Katie A.!

    This makes me think of when I would be doing laundry as a kid, and I’d take the clothes out of the dryer to fold only to have a squirrel’s tail fly out at me because my brother didn’t remove it from his pocket before sending his pants to the wash. Terrifying I tell you, terrifying!

  2. My sister did this when we were kids, only instead of bark…it was a fish head! It went through the washer and dryer ending up with fish flesh flakes all over the place! Ew!

    Oh god… one of my mom’s favorite “Embarrass Liz” stories involves this. The playground at my elementary school had a lot of mica in it, so we’d go ‘treasure hunting’. I wound up with a great haul one afternoon and forgot about the double-fistful of stones. Mom gets to the laundromat with my pants… and has to empty the pockets out into an empty metal trash can. CLANG!!!! I got an earful. She got a story to tell to all of my adult friends. 🙂

    OR…before you climb into my brand new clean sheets to watch Spongebob!

    Do not hide your DS games inside your coat pockets on wash day. Btw they still work!
