What surprises can you find at the laundromat?

What surprises can you find at the laundromat?

I was so engrossed in journaling while at the laundromat today (a blogger journaling? surprise surprise), that I didn’t even notice someone open the dryers and throw gifts inside.  Nor did I hear anyone drop a napkin in the sack right behind me.

In both my dryers were fabric things with little sayings.

The laundromat elves left fabric in other people’s dryers too.

Even though I left the fabric on the counter instead of taking them home, I appreciate the gifts just the same.    I have no use for them, and figured I would let someone else take them who wouldn’t just stuff them at the bottom of a junk drawer.

So whoever and wherever you elves are, thank you for putting a smile on my face. Laundry was less of a drudgery today!
