This is the non-gross part:

I bought a new backpack yesterday for Arie since the one I'd gotten for him last month was a piece of crap and, even though it had an image of Superman on it, it fell apart, thus failing to live up to the reputation of the Man of Steel. I couldn't find another Superman backpack like Arie had requested, so I got a Batman one instead. Unfortunately, it too started tearing at the seam this morning so I had to return it, which meant I needed the receipt.

What I had stupidly done with the receipt, however, was leave it in the Target bag that I then stuck in the drawer with Frodo's poop bags. So this morning, when [livejournal.com profile] haddayr took Frodo out, she took that very Target bag and picked up his crap with it after he'd done his business.

After fruitlessly looking for the receipt in the house, I realized that this was what had happened and travelled out to the garbage to see if I could retrieve it. There it was, in the poop bag, smack up against the poop. I pulled it out and saw that it was mostly clean except for a suspicious liquid, so I pulled it from the bag, brought it inside and rinsed it under the water, then sprayed it with a perfumed air freshener and dried it off as best I could.

No one at Target suspected I was, in fact, carrying a poop receipt,and the exchange went off without a hitch, but it was definitely one of the more unpleasant returns I've had.
