Creepy, laundry 

In a shared laundry room, I'm the person who wipes under the rubber lip of a front loading machine before using it. Mostly I catch coins and hair clips or the odd cigarette lighter or pellets of wet paper. Usually the grossest stuff is soap scum or hair. Today though? A rusted nail, two rocks, and a tooth. In a horror movie, that means something horrendous is under the floorboards and I have seven days to live.

@PostMasterGeneral Yes, like a baby tooth. Either someone forgot to empty their preteen kid's pockets or the same sort of person who tried to hex the moon is out there cursing washing machines

@erinbee orrrrr there's a little kid who's gonna get a visit from the tooth fairy, and maybe they should bring shiny rocks instead of money

You could be that tooth fairy! :blackheartsparkle: 🤘🏻

@bouncinglime Haha, leave coins on the washer just in case

@erinbee bad tooth fairy timing. Surely that tooth would also have turned into coins like the other times if you had waited a bit longer

@lastfuture You have to have the cash in hand before it's money laundering, amateur tooth fairy mistake

@erinbee

At least have the rocks appraised, or warm them in the sun to see if anything hatches out of them.

@xenophora They're garbage gremlins now, I'll have to keep up on the news to see if a dump truck got eviscerated
