A laundry miracle!

I’ve been behind in doing laundry this week, so tonight I grabbed a big gob of clothes and stuffed them in the washer. (It’s high-capacity, so it can take it.) I washed:

7 pairs of dress pants (one of them Lloyd’s best pair)
11 shirts (3 of Lloyd’s school shirts, his best Sunday shirt, 2 t-shirts, and various school shirts of mine)
some socks
a green pen

Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles – these two shirts were the only things that got inked. I guess stuff was jammed in there too tight for a lot of damage.

Seriously. That’s all I’ve got.

    I’m not sure that “gob” is the collective noun for clothing. I went looking, but it’s not on the list. Maybe it’s a shoal of clothing? …a herd of clothing?

    Hmmm, I don’t know if that ever happened to my dad either.

    Will tomorrow’s post be a testament to the ink removing power of soap nuts?

    What’s Lloyd doing with a St. Patrick’s day pen in April?

    Hey, having washed more than my share of chapsticks, pens and other marking/staining objects, I think that this really is a laundry miracle!
