This is just a very quick one because I feel so very sick. If I Twittered it would just be a Twitter.
I've just pulled Mr. Minimal's I-pod Nano (that he bought with his own money) out of the dryer. And I don't mean that the little guy put it in there as a prank.
No, it's gone through the warm/cold wash, and the almost dry cycle in the dryer.
I am sick and tired of them leaving stuff in their pockets. The older two are 16 and 13 fer crying out loud. If it's not a tissue which messes up the whole load, it's a ten dollar bill (they claim) which is unrecognisable by the time it resurfaces.
In the past, Mr. Minimal has left his cell phone in there and it too, came out sparkling and fluffed up. We told him then that we weren't buying him another one and he could have one of the Ball & Chain's ex-ones. (That's not a phone that belonged to the Ball & Chain's ex, you understand, but an ex-phone of the B&C. The B&C has only ever been married to me - as far as I know. I'll get back to you on that one.)
But here's my dilemna - he bought it with his own money and he uses it all the time. Agghh! Should I have sensed that something was in the pocket? Actually, now that I think about it, he usually takes his headset and I-pod out and dumps them on my desk every night (another cause for a rant), so perhaps it's the Queenager's.
If that's the case, I'm doomed. I'm going to be whined to death, I can see it coming. Pray for me.
