This morning I put on my winter coat that I've been wearing for about a week. For some reason I stuck my hand deep into a pocket, past the glove and hat that live there.
Found something... crumbly. What could that be? Birdseed.
The glove seemed fine, but when I pulled the hat out, it had been a bit chewed, and birdseed was embedded all over its fuzzy surface. Dusted it off, stuck it in the laundry, emptied the pocket of (mostly eaten) birdseed...
They've gotten into a zipped up bag containing one of my crochet projects. They ate my entire stash of Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses. I don't yet know if the hat is still usable. And worse, I don't know if the "pocket" is old, or if it was done within the last week... or even within the last 10 hours.
As I make my (admittedly very slow) progress on cleaning the house, I dread what I might find. Now _there_ is incentive for you!
