Watch the wash

Fiji Sun - - Sunfun -

I de­cided to make my­self use­ful and do a load of the fam­ily laun­dry. When I took the clothes out of the ma­chine, I dis­cov­ered — to my dis­may — that I had also washed the watch my wife had given me while we were dat­ing. “Don’t ex­pect me to re­place it,” she said later with an ob­vi­ous lack of sym­pa­thy. By the time Fa­ther’s Day rolled around, how­ever, she had re­lented and gave me beau­ti­ful new watch. At­tached was a note with this stip­u­la­tion: “DRYCLEAN ONLY!”
