Buttons were buttoned. Collars turned up. Zippers zipped. Pants pockets empty.
It was a load of laundry, B's dress shirts mixed with the big boys' school shirts, mixed with other clothes and six white napkins from breakfast. . .
And there was one ink pen in one pocket of one shirt that I didn't see.
The dryer is now striped black inside and the entire load of laundry sports black smudges.
My first thought: "We don't have money to fix this."
My second: "It will be okay. He promised."
But is there any way to fix this big oops?
