Thirteen things that have (probably) never been left in the dryer at a laundromat

1. Can of Pringles
2. Fred Flintstone's Water Buffalo hat
3. Light bulb
4. Printer ink cartridge
5. 2-liter bottle of Sprite
6. Beef jerky
7. Cement block
8. Large pizza with pepperoni and ham
9. Orange road construction cone
10. Argentina
11. Entire set of World Book Encyclopedias
12. The kid at the drive-thru who forgot to include my hot sauce
13. That weird thing in your back yard

I wish people would leave pizzas in dryers at the laundromat. Yum, hot free pizza! The best kind! I'd eat in my water buffalo hat, too. If I had one. I keep checking the laundromats, but nuttin'. Disappointing.

I think your list is bang on, Janna. I once left a ring behind, returned an hour later and still managed to get it back (a guy there produced it out of his pocket...decent of him to couch it up when asked)

Collette said...

You know, I thin kbeef jerky may have fallen out of someone's pocket & been left in there. The other stuff...not so

Avitable said...

Fuck. You know what? That's where I left my Encyclopedias! I've been looking EVERYWHERE for them!

Lizzy and Elle said...

Awesome list, I once put my brother in the dryer...he hasn't been right since...I get blamed for all his problems.

PattiKen said...

But the bad dude who went missing the other week?

OK, that's a story for another time...

#4 and #13... I think I've seen those in dryers.

MikeWJ: If only we could solve the problem of the cheese sticking to the inside of the dryer and getting caught in the lint filter.

Alan: It was in his pocket?? Wow. Good thing you said something; he would've kept it! :o

Collette: After an hour in the dryer, it would be EXTRA dry jerky!

Avitable: Next time, remember to take them out of your pants pocket before you do laundry!

Lizzy and Elle: At least now he has a cool story to blog about. "Dear blog, one time my sibling put me in a dryer..."

PattiKen: He's still in the washer. It's on a long spin cycle.

Marilyn: I bet that printer ink stains really bad.

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Oh, bummer. I hadn't thought about the sticky cheese problem. Back to the laboratory!

Janna said...

MikeWJ: And the pepperoni might get stuck in the lint filter. There's nothing worse than linty pepperoni.
