mrs cohutt: “Arrgh…. what’s that thumping in the dryer!?!” as she walks through the kitchen to the laundry room

cohutt: “whatever”, to himself, rolling eyes… (Discreetly verifies his cell phone is in his pocket.)

mrs cohutt: ” (indistinguishable muttering) ”

cohutt: “What dear?”

mrs cohutt: “(surprised burst of laughter from the laundry room)”

cohutt: “What’s so damn funny?”

mrs cohutt: “only in our house is this possible……”

cohutt, dumbfounded: “(sound of eyes blinking)”

Yes, one partially dismembered but well laundered head of garlic was the cause of the mysterious thumping in our dryer.  At this point, I have no clue what else to say.

      Amazingly no…. But I haven’t checked the laundry yet 😉

    You might be becoming a farmer, but you aren’t one yet as evidenced by your discrete phone checking. You’ll know you’re a real farmer when you worry that maybe you’ve washed a hand-fork or (heaven forbid) an egg

      I’ll admit that Beans and peppers have made it into the wash before as well.

      But they had an explanation….. 😉

    Similar things have wound up in our laundry as well. Everything starts spiraling out of control from here! I think you may have hit rock bottom!

    Perhaps you should call Thomas Keller and let him use this as the newest gastronomic trend.

    I love this story! I don’t think I’ve washed produce from my pockets but I’ve broken the odd egg in an overalls pocket or a coat pocket…. It’s not a pretty picture or feel to it.

    I started working & never got to see your posts…. I’ve been making up for lost time. I love your blog. Thanks for it!
