No crumbs? I'm sure the amount of crumbs in my couch will equal the total weight of everything you just listed.

No (used) condom? This list sounds like "in the backseat of my car"

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Eric...Oh there was a copious supply of crumbs and dirt too. That was the reason why I went spelunking in the first place.

Pipster...Since my kids are 4 and 1 and I've had a vasectomy, thankfully I did NOT find one. And you had Lightening McQueen cars in the back of your car?

I especially liked: Four pens / Three pen caps.

ZenMom said...

What no puppies or treasure maps or Incan gold?

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

I'm thinking you might want to clean in there a bit more often. Or better yet just call in the kids, rip off the cushions and say "Happy Birthday!"

wow...what would mom say??

starlightsound said...

dibs on the fruit leather

Daddy Geek Boy said...

YEO...The other cap is probably sitting next to a pile of single socks.

Zen...Those may be in our other couch.

Andrea...Great idea! The Bean was enthralled with the convertible car. It was like a new toy.

Stac...Mom would be horrified. And just so you know, this wasn't the big couch in the back, this was the small brown one in the front.

starlight...Seriously? But I don't think they're supposed to have the texture of a Jolly Rancher.

Multi-tasking Mommy said...

DUDE! You need to clean your couch more often ;)

Daddy Geek Boy said...

MTM...I have no idea why you'd think that.

Pfft - I don't bother cleaning out the couch until we lose a child in the cushions. Sometimes not even then.
