Purple Crayon, Purple Crayon (As sung to the tune of Purple Rain)

Big E's laundry has been dry for about a day.  I keep turning the dryer back on to delay the folding process.  This evening, I finally faced my fear and opened the dryer.  I was tired of it mocking me.

I began pulling out his wrinkled clothes.

Wait a minute!  Why is everything decorated with PURPLE streaks?!

I grabbed a pair of his school khakis, although they could now be referred to as his school purples.  I reached into the pocket and found the hard, crusty remnants of a purple crayon.

DANG! DANG! DANG!

I don't usually check his pockets.

BIG E!  DID YOU PUT A PURPLE CRAYON IN YOUR POCKET?

He looked up from his workbook.  And nodded yes.

I GUESS THAT WASN'T A GOOD IDEA, MOM!

I felt like slamming my head into the wall.

Anyway, I'll just add this to the list of things I've accidentally washed:

1) Diapers
2) Matchbox Cars
3) Crayons
4) Floss Picks
5) Acorns

I'm sure this will not be the last item that incorrectly finds its way into the hamper.

In the meantime, I'm hoping a rewash will take care of the crayon.  If not, a shopping I will go.

This might be a useful website to read.
