About a tenth of a mile into my 3 miler last night, I felt a strange bunching of fabric in my shorts. At first I thought it was the lining of the shorts, but that seemed odd since I've never had such a thing happen. Then, I figured maybe the shell of the shorts had just twisted around weird, but that wasn't it because it was really a bunching of material inside the short.
So, as I ran, I reached in my shorts (that phrase right there should yield some interesting site meter results), and discovered a dryer sheet wadded in there. Not wanting to litter, I held onto the sheet for the next 2 and 1/2 miles until I passed a bus stop where I could throw it away in the garbage can.
Now, in many ways, this doesn't seem all that strange -- I mean, dryer sheets get caught in the fabric of clothes all the time, and I'm sure we've all discovered ourselves wearing one at some point or another -- but in all my running memory, I could not think of a single instance in which this had previously happened. So, as I ran, carrying that dryer sheet in one hand, I couldn't help but kinda giggle to myself every so often. Cuz, c'mon, how many of us find ourselves running with a dryer sheet? Any of you?
