I'm used to the occasional chapstick, folded up paper, or even a knife. But, today I found an earplug and a bullet. My first thought was, "OMG! Our house could've blown up!" While I'm not sure this is true of ammunition in a dryer, I'm sure it's not a very good idea to test out that theory. I don't know, maybe it's been on Mythbusters before, or maybe one of you can fill me in. Can bullets in a dryer go off?
My second thought made me smile. I realized that I am going to find things like this throughout the years. I'll probably have to check pockets better than I have been, AND I've never seen so many pockets in my life! All of HF's clothes seems to have pockets and more pockets, and secret hidden pockets. I think I'll start a list of things I find in the dryer. Other than these 2 items, the last "freaky" thing I found in there was a giant pocket knife. I heard "Ka-thunk! Ka-thunk! Ka-thunk!" When I went to check it out, not only was it the biggest pocket knife I'd ever seen in my life inside, but it was OPEN. I checked for slashed clothes. I'm pretty sure that if there weren't so many pockets and hidden pockets on his pants, I would've discovered it.
HF has just finished reading On Combat by Dave Grossman and has asked me to read it. I didn't want to, but he said it was really important to him that I do, so I guess I'll go git to it. While I'm away reading, answer this for me: What have you accidentally washed or dried?
