How does Noah do it? Or better yet, when does he do it? I find his dirty little pairs of underpants everywhere.

Noah just likes a nice clean pair at all times, I guess. It’s not like he has accidents and needs to destroy the evidence. None of the pairs I find stashed are wet or dirty (besides the occasional skid mark which is to be expected). None of it has even been worn very long. Maybe he just likes to switch up his cartoon characters. Who knows.

And the places I find them… now, close your eyes, and pick a random corner. Do you have it in your mind? Well, did you picture a pair of Superman undies in that corner? Then you obviously weren’t thinking of a corner at my house. I have found his skivvies in the pantry, in the bathtub, in the bathroom sink, under his bed, under his pillow, on his stuffed animals, and stuffed under couch cushions. I have found them in my bedroom, in his bedroom, and in pretty much every other room of the house.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like you walk through the house and see lost pairs of incrimination everywhere you look. No, they kind of just jump out at you when you least expect it. Like when you open the fridge to get a glass of chocolate milk and, oh, hello Spidey. Or when you’re checking under his bed for monsters and get a nice whiff of an ever growing pile of BVDs.

Dirty discards are actually kind of fun, now that I think about it. Maybe I’ll start hiding mine after I wear them so that my house guests can experience the good times like I get to, only with a more manly smell as part of the overall experience.
