Our laundry now knows Greek, thanks to my husband's thoughtlessness in providing it with his flash cards.

Lucky him, to try to get all the bits off.

What is it with classical languages and men and laundry!!!?

At least this isn't as bad as my dad knocking my paperback Latin dictionary into the washing machine ...

I think you may already be doing this given your post but, just in case, I offer the advice below:

To help him learn Greek, place little cards or sticky notes on as many objects in abode as you can. When the object's name in Greek is memorized, take the card or sticky note away. A good way to learn a foreign language. It goes without saying (but I'll say it nonetheless) that one should not place paper notes near or on hot objects.

No, the laundry mess was my fault - I left my notecards in my shirt pocket...

Get one of those rollers with the masking tape - works wonders.

Notecards are much better than the red crayon I left in my white shorts when I was 11 years old. My dad wore red spotted t-shirts and Fruit of the Looms for years afterwards!!!

Zac once brought me his sheets to wash....unbeknownst to me, he'd been reading a library book in bed and he gathered it up with the sheets, and it went into the wash! I never knew what a mess a book in the washer could make. :-P
