WAFFLES: Hey Boss, in case you were wondering, the Greenies aren't machine washable.
KATIE: Waffles, what did you do now?
KATIE: Please tell me you didn't put the Greenies in the washing machine again.
KATIE: That crumpled and clearly EMPTY bag looks awfully clean, Waffles.
WAFFLES: Maybe we should've used the gentle cycle.
KATIE: I've got your gentle cycle.
Today's photos are almost four years ago, when we were living in our Minneapolis Townhouse. There was an "incident" with our dishwasher that resulted in what we now call the Great Flood of 2015. In an episode of "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" - Waffles put a bag of Greenies Cat Treats IN the washing machine. How is this even possible? The following chronicles the sequence of events that led to the unfortunate demise of a perfectly good bag of Greenies.
- While construction workers were ripping up our damaged walls and ceilings, Katie & Waffles needed to be contained in what used to be the Kitten Quarantine Room so there would be no chance of them getting hurt or escaping.
- Glogirly lured them into the room by offering them what looked like handfuls of Greenies. She even shook the bag.
- Once Katie & Waffles were distracted with the tasty free-for-all, Glogirly made a run for it. She had the bag of Greenies in one hand and shut the door with the other.
- The only safe and convenient place to store the bag of Greenies was inside the laundry closet, just outside the Kitten Quarantine Room. Probably so she could trick Katie & Waffles again the next time another worker showed up.
- Later in the day, Katie & Waffles got a glimpse of the treat bag sitting on the edge of the washer inside the laundry closet while Glogirly was doing the towels.
- A couple of loads later, Glogirly forgot to close the laundry closet doors tightly.
- And that's how a perfectly good bag of Greenies lands in the wash. The spin cycle probably did them in.
