I don’t check pockets

I have washed and dried my husband’s earphones twice already. Business cards have evaporated. Things I jammed in my own pockets to put away later get lost in the machines. Pebbles and shells I was asked to hold onto for the kids have shattered or clogged the lint screen. Dollar bills have been stripped of grime. Coins polished.

I don’t check the pockets. I know I should, but I don’t. One day I’ll learn. Besides, I like finding treasures that I thought I had lost for good, like this charm bracelet.


Oh dear! I hear something clicking in there.
