MY HEAD IS ATTACHED BUT...
Later in the day I went to empty the dryer and fold the clothes. A jacket for Tom, a couple of his sweatshirts, my red hoodie, new red dishtowels and, what's that in the back? I reached way in and pulled out an iPod. "Who the hell put an iPod in the hamper?" is going through my mind as I turn it over and see it is red.
It's my iPod. It has been through the washer and the dryer.
Then I remember. When I was leaving the gym I had noticed it needed charging. I unplugged the headphones and left them in the gym bag and slipped the iPod in my pocket. The rest of the story is obvious.
