The other day I was searching everywhere for my kitchen washcloths. I had folded all the laundry and there was a good size stack of them in that batch of laundry. Then I had to go somewhere so Matt and Sam were left to put the laundry away and the washcloths went missing.
As I dug through the drawer they live in with the hand towels I had and idea that maybe they fell out the back of the drawer to the drawer below. So I checked the drawer below and they weren't there. Then I thought maybe they fell out the back of the drawer but landed into the nothingness behind the drawers. I wasn't sure if there even was a nothingness behind the drawers because I had never looked back there before. I pulled out the bottom two drawers and I found:
two wooden spoons
one white plastic serving spoon
three zip lock baggies
one small, white, paper bag
three hand towels that I forgot existed
one salad claw that I was digging around the drawer for about a week ago
one hot pad and one wash cloth, that don't belong to us
a long plastic straw that goes with a water bottle
a large peace of foil that had been folded up very neatly, but not by me
a blade for an electric knife, also not ours
a mason jar ring
All perfectly clean, not one speck of dust back there.
But the wash cloths I was looking for weren't there. I started nagging Matt and Sam about them and Matt finally found them above the washing machine in the cupboard with the rags. He says he probably put them with the rags because they are starting to look like rags. I told him he could go buy me some new ones anytime.
Go pull out your drawers and tell me what you find!
