Tesori? Laundry Lost and Found

Having fallen far behind in laundry chores, I made a deal with myself that if I focused on the task and made significant progress, I would indulge in one evening of not worrying. About anything.

Those of you closest to me understand my attachment to worrying, often about things over which I have little or no control. The worry is how I work at the problem, searching for some logical or rational solution, or even a smidge of greater understanding. It’s not a good habit and is often counter-productive.

Now I feel guilty for worrying. Oh, for Pete’s sake!

Because I am trying to get through the job, I hurried the first load, neglecting to check pockets before the wash cycle (yet another sin). As I pulled the stuff to go into the dryer, I found the following:
* pocket comb
* leather pouch imprinted with “Flagyl I.V., in which lives
a masculine manicure set- go figure
* Sephora lip gloss in Precious Pink
* Hohner “C” harmonica

And I made $20.00, freshly laundered.

P.S. Second load presented a hoodie with a disposable ice pack in the pocket. No complaints from the troops of any injury.



  1. Dude that is my cash. Not my lip gloss. What’s Flagyl I.V.?

  2. Imagine how much different your blog would’ve sounded if one of the washed articles was an iPod loaded with all of your favorite music?

  3. “Bernie”, we’ll talk.

  4. Jon- Oh, man… Clean iPods are very bad. I did rescue one during the preliminaries once.

  5. Flagyl is a strong antibiotic with a carcinogen effect in mice and rats.

  6. Once I put the laundry in and went back five minutes later to add a towel and there was my 8 year old son’s hamster swimming for his life….it had been in his robe pocket.
