Bullets in the Laundry


Just when I think my life is normal and dull, something strange happens to shake that notion. Like this morning when I was pulling clothes out of the washing machine and something gold caught my eye against the silver tub. Yes - it really was a bullet. Amazingly, this was not the first time. Bullets of varying calibres have made their way into the washer and even into the dryer many times. I have visions of one exploding as the dryer tumbles it on high heat. But DH assures me that can't happen.
Such is life when you're married to a law enforcement officer. Thankfully I was alone when I found the ammunition.
The pest control man gave me the strangest look when he saw a pair of handcuffs on my kitchen counter. His eyebrow lifted and his lips curled in a knowing grin. And what was I supposed to say? "It's not what you think."
I must admit, I am often turned on by the tools of his trade. There's something about a man in uniform that does it for me. Don't male strippers often dress in police garb? Can't be just me.
What about you? Do you go for the macho hero in a uniform or the sexy suit clad one?

Uniforms are definately sexy! Bullets in the dryer are definately scary too ;o) Glad they're apparently harmless!

Oh, both. Suit or uniform. All hot!

LOL, Dara.

Too bad it wasn't the tree guy that spotted the handcuffs!

LOL!!! Oh this is priceless! And yes, I do LOVE a man in uniform. Why? I have absolutely no idea but it does make my head turn. :-)

My little bro works for the government over seas. When the government guys interviewed his wife (yes, they had to interview her, too), she decided to be funny and make a comment about how sexy the big guns were.....

He got the job anyway!!

I do love men in uniform, but more in the military vein. And because I'm a historical gal, I think the older uniforms are so much better than modern ones. Most of the European or British cavalry uniforms with all the piping and buttons on them are my favorites.

it's funny, because I read this post the day you originally published it and I was nodding my head in agreement: Both that men in uniforms - with their various tools of the trade - are sexy, but also about finding bullets in the washer/dryer.

MM just laughs, but it's rather disconcerting to pull bullets out of the dryer. Like you, I just keep waiting for one to explode.

Only a law enforcement wife/girlfriend can fully appreciate that - or a bank robber's!
