Is that a....a boot???
How the heck did that get in there?
My better half walks over to see what I'm chuckling about, and he says "you washed your boot? You wouldn't believe how dusty that boot was so I vacuumed it the other day. I put it in on top of the dirty clothes when I was done, I can't believe you didn't see it!"
"You put it in the laundry basket???" I say in disbelief.
"Yeah, I put it there right on top, nice and neat, after I finished vacuuming it. I can't believe you didn't see it there."
Seriously? By the time I did the laundry, 3 days later, it was nicely tucked between the the fruit of the looms and the fuzzy socks.
I'm not too sad though...it's a free pass to a new pair of shoes. And I wasn't too attached to them.
He doesn't need to know that.
