And yes, as disgusting as it is to think about, I once had a housemate who confessed to losing a Dr. Scholl's corn pad in my sheets when she camped out in my room one night while I was away.
Yeah, that's strange, but not as strange as the list my sister offered up when she was cleaning up her daughter's room. The assortment of items found in the bed included: a pair of cleats, a razor, Rolo's wrappers, a Slim Jim wrapper and a bottle of Adult Gummy Vitamins.
