That looks exactly like the pocket contents of someone who posts at Reddit. I can't even begin to imagine how someone had that many lost marbles over the years, references to that idiom aside. If you were a marble collector or you played marbles competitively, you think you would be more careful with them, right? There are like 30-40 of them in there. It's like 1 a month for 4 years. Argh I hate that site

I always cleaned out my pants before I put them in the laundry, and my mom always found my pot and threw it out regardless.

You know how you'll go months or a year without really listening to one of your favorite artists, and then spend 3 weeks listening to nothing but? Well, Your post just kicked off my Bowie marathon.

Thanks!

I did my own laundry ... there was never anything in my pockets because I emptied my pockets as soon as I got home.

I said nothing to indicate that, "filling my pockets" is a general statement and doesn't mention what out of that drawer I'm filling my pockets with.

//Likewise, I'm not wearing three pairs of sunglasses (at night), nor am I carrying two wallets.

That's what I thought.

I'm pinning this up here for everyone to see it. Sorry I didn't write this when I Boobiesed the photos... but here's the story of the lamp.

The lamp is a glass jar full of all the things that my mom found in my pockets when doing my laundry as a child. I was born in 1986, and you can tell from a lot of the items in it.

It started off with mostly sticks, rocks, and marbles. But over time it ended up having all sorts of items ranging from Pogs, a Gameboy game (Super Mario Land), a Magic School Bus McDonald's toy, yo-yos, and Laser Quest scorecards. There are also plenty of sticks, springs, rubber-bands, and twist-ties because I went through a phase where I remember telling my parents I was going to build a robot with just those items.

I will admit that there are a few items in there from my early 20s too, as like any lazy college student, I let my mom wash my clothes while staying at home from college between semesters. And clearly, my mom was still collecting my things.

Growing up, whenever I left something in my pockets and put them in the dirty laundry, before she would wash things, she checked my pockets, and if she found anything, she put it in a glass jar on the top shelf in the laundry room. I remember as a kid, wishing soooo hard that I could get some of the items back, but it was forbidden to even go near the jar. By the time I was old enough to be sneaky about it and get into it, I had just learned to accept that that was how it worked and I wouldn't get those things back.

Years went by and I had completely forgotten about it, until this last May. I got married, and at our rehearsal dinner, when my mom and dad stood up to give their thank you speech, my mom pulled a large gift bag out from under the table. She started by giving a short speech explaining that over the years she had collected stuff from my pockets, and it was in that moment that I thought, "I'm gonna get the jar!" I started tearing up before she had finished talking. When she did, I opened the bag and found that not only was I getting the jar, I was getting it back in the form of a lamp (and yes, she has sealed the top of the lamp to it so that I still CANNOT open it).

This has definitely been the best gift I've ever received.

If anything, that makes it seem mean and creepy to an even greater degree, but what do I know, since he seems happy.

When I was 10 or 11 years old, I asked my mom about a specific shirt I wanted to wear, commenting: "I put it in the hamper a week ago, and it hasn't come back yet!"

I've been doing my own laundry ever since.

Iknow it's cliche to say so, but this was on the front page of Reddit earlier this week. Do writers now make it a habit of creating articles about items found on Reddit?
