It was a Tuesday evening, much like any other Tuesday evening at our house. I was in the basement doing the laundry - my husband was upstairs relaxing, watching TV, and generally not doing much of anything.
I reached into the washing machine to select the garments capable of withstanding the harsh environment of the dryer, and to choose the delicate ones which would need to be lovingly hung up on the line to dry, when I saw something creepy. What could it be?
Could it be... a spider in the laundry? And not just any spider, but a giant, creepy, clearly poisonous spider? I peered more closely...
It really was a spider. Ick, double-ick, quadruple-trillion ick. And then, bravely, a final glance...
...Phew. A spider, yes. But a fake spider. I'm not sure which kid is to blame, but I'm just glad to have survived the laundry and to live to wash,dry and fold another night.
Have you ever had a scare in the laundry room?
I'm linking-up to Finding the Funny, because who doesn't like funny?
You can check it out at Kelley's Break Room and My Life and Kids. And you totally should. Unless you don't like funny.
