Living out in the country, and raising a large number of small children, I really shouldn't be surprised to find "surprises" for me in the laundry, but I still laugh (most of the time) when something unusual makes it through the spin cycle.
We have had the usual suspects...
And we have had the messier...
worms (no, they did not survive)
And we have had the more unusual....
And my all-time favorite....
The goggles made it all the way through the dryer before being discovered and appeared to suffer no catastrophic injuries.
Of course, my husband keeps telling me that if I would check pockets before loading the laundry, I could avoid most of these. But do I really want to reach my hand into a pocket to pull out a worm?
