Just wondering.

Have you ever stuck your khakis in the dryer to get the wrinkles out?

After about 8 minutes, have you opened the dryer to an overwhelming smell of peppermint?

Have you ever realized too late that you left peppermint chap stick in your khaki pocket when de-wrinkling?

Have you ever ruined your khakis in 8 minutes?

Oh, you haven’t?

Uhhh…. yeah. Me neither.

    nope, b/c my fave is cherry chapstick, and I hate my khakis, therefore, don’t wear them much.
    i’ll bring ya some at work tomorrow.

    Now, Annie, that’s just sad. I think you might have ruined my day (well, almost anyway).

    Annie maybe you should use your hair curler technique. Look at your khakis before you dry them and say “I cleaned out your pockets.”

    Becky- I hate my khakis too. Take that complaint to the top. 🙂

    Shannon- please don’t let it ruin your day. I wore them anyways.

    JM- to joke about my OCD tendencies is wrong AND hilarious. I usually don’t talk to my clothes, but I’m thinking you are on to something.

    I’ve done the “where’s my chapstick? Oh beep beep beeeeppp, it’s in the dryer with my khaki pants!” bit. Also in the dryer at the time was a nice button up shirt, another fav T-shirt, and 2-3 pairs of my scrubs that came out with lovely grease spots all over them! Ugh..still pissed bout that…bee-bee-bo-beeeppp!
