Wallet Washing

I left my wallet in my pants the other day. Found it later as I was removing clothes from the washer. Bit of a sinking feeling as the reality of what happened unfolded before my eyes.

The entire contents of my wallet were spread out on the kitchen island. Business cards, driver’s license, membership cards, frequent buyer cards and money. My life, as described by what lay before me, was damp to the touch.

Well, some of these descriptions were unneeded and were discarded. My wallet is thinner now. At least my wallet did not fall into the toilet as I was pulling up my pants.
