< Upheaval: Point taken

Point taken

I know I rant about it a lot, but it seems like laundry is exploding out of my ears here at the Johnson House. Dillon and I wear normal amounts of clothing, but Daniel, in one day, can wear as many as three pairs of jeans/BDUs, three shirts, and three pairs of socks and underwear. Actually, he doesn't have a choice at all, but it still drives me crazy!

This morning I was "fluffing" up a load of jeans before I pulled them out of the dryer. The buttons and snaps were clinking louder than usual on the dryer drum as it flipped them around. I pulled the door open to have a look and pulled the jeans out.

What did I find in the dryer?


How about a big, brassy, pointy, scary BULLET?????

Probably something you should not heat up and then toss violently in a spinning metal drum, don'tcha think? I don't know much about bullets, but I know enough to turn and run out of the laundry room.

And in the near future? I think the laundry will be piling up a bit as Daniel figures out how to sort and wash his own things.

Yikes! What a scare! However, it wasn't all bad, since it resulted in relinquishing part of the laundry load to your other half.

The worst laundry related disaster I've had was when I washed my husband's cell phone, but since there was no physical danger involved, I suppose I got off easy. :)

I would hope it would take more than the heat of a dryer, and some bouncing around to fire a bullet, but then again, I dont know much about fire arms either. Yikes! Guess you can never be too careful. I usually love it when I hear extra clinking in my dryer (but then again my husband is a computer nerd), usually means some change Darrell left in his pockets. That's the only time this mamma gets paid for working.

I would've FREAKED OUT. Thankfully, the only things clanking around in my dryer are change and random keys from random computer keyboards.

Dang. I wouldn't want the laundry washing gig at your house either!

I've had the same experience! It freaked me out, too! Luckily, my dryer didn't explode, either. :) It really does make you check pockets a little more thoroughly before you wash things, though, doesn't it? :)

Yikes! That would be a little nerve racking to me.

I hate to scare you, but can you imagine how laundry will be when your new addition arrives? Smart move having Daniel sort and wash his own laundry....

Ha! It is only a small crowd of us who can say that has happened to them too--and it has happened at our house, more than once.
