I almost did something dumb, but at the last moment, avoided danger. I was at the laundromat, and i liked to start the machine, let some water go in, add my detergent, and then add the clothes. So one day I start it up,and see wht I think is a leaf in the bottom. I reached in and went to pick it up when it MOVED. It was a bat. I screamed and ran away. The laundromat attendant got it out, and then went about my merry way, since I had already put $$ in, and I wasn't going to waste it! I figured the water would kill any bat germs.
