I caught Genius digging through the laundry after church. That is SO not him. He won't even look for money that might be in his pockets. Several sets of earphones have gone through the wash and dry cycle. Yet there he was. Tossing clothes like a magician juggling silk scarves.
"What are you doing?"
"Looking for my yellow Nike shirt."
"It's in the washer right now. It was dirty."
"Not really. I only wore it to bowling yesterday."
"Well, it was in the dirty clothes basket."
"I know. But I only wore it a couple of hours. I think it still has several hours left on it."
"I'm sure it did. But now it's swimming in the Whirlpool."
"That's okay. I'll just get another shirt."
"In the future, keep it in your room if you think is still has wearing time left."
Somebody really needs to take a weekend to sort, wash, dry, hang and fold clothes for the entire household. Then he might be a little more reasonable with his apparel wearage. It won't be long until he goes off to college, and relies on the smell test for his wardrobe selection.
