AND what was up with making the Kindergarteners use big fat pencils? Our hands were so tiny.
I remember when they came out with erasable ink! Just in time, too. That was the year (fifth grade?) that we were to switch from pencil to ink.
Remember the old cartridge fountain pens (just told my age I am sure) - left on in a shirt pocket - well mom was not happy when I got home from ball practice - seems everything in that load had a nice blue tint.
I thought a clothes washer was history once, after I took it apart looking for what was wrong,and before feeling the bottom of the tub and finding a screw stuck in one the little drain holes...long enough to stop it from turning. lol
My Mom gave me the wupping of my life because of something I left in a shirt pocket. She washed my pet Garter Snake. I got home from school and my older brother stopped me outside and said "You might want to wait awhile before you go in." and turned and walked off. I should have followed.
My kids were always bad about leaving money in their pockets. I was always very good about keeping what got washed. There was no returning the money. I don't believe they ever learned to check their pockets, either.
Great blog and a good lesson for life.
I've lost a lot of things in the wash because my wife didn't check the pockets but the threat of me having to wash my own clothes made me realize that it was my job to check..:-)
Arriving at the truth on their own is the best way to learn because the lesson removes the doubt, therefor it lasts longer.
Put it on fluff cycle in dryer - hee hee
I knocked my phone into a sink full of soapy water. Was a few minutes before it I needed it and discovered it was missing. Re-tracked steps, etc., finally had the sinking (ok pun intended) feeling. I took covers off, battery out, hit it with blow dryer for awhile. Then had it sit in rice for two days. I had to replace the battery- now three years later- it works just fine.
