Actual conversation with my husband.
Me: “Why are there bleached out spots all over my underwear? I just bought these.”
Barry: “Sometimes I use bleach in the wash if I’m washing the kids’ sheets if they had an accident. To get the smell out.”
Me: “You put other things in with the sheets?”
Barry: “Yeah. (Pause.) Is that bad?”
Me: (Face palm.)
