 I really dont know how it happened! I took a load out of the dryer..they were still hot as usual bc the cycle hadnt finished. I just grabbed them out & stuffed them in the basket (a tall white plastic basket)  & put in another load. Went to go watch whatever I was watching, about 15mins I started to get a headache...then 30mins I smell something. I ask bf did he smell something so we get up search the entire house...nothing. So i go open the windows bc kiddies were asleep...we go outside to see if there was a fire or if the neighbors house was on fire...nothing! Go back inside its stronger ..my dryer is near the front door so i look over there & then I see the smoke coming out of the basket!! Wth?? so he drags it out...I grab some clothes out of the top & in the middle my clothes was just burning like hell so we get some water & put it out...finally found a wash cloth that was burned to what look like coal! I dont know how that happened..Im so confused! No explanation! The only thing that i can think about is all the static Ive been having in my body all weekend...everything I touched i got shocked..every door I touched..i went to sams & every freezer door! when when i kissed my bf on the lips that hurt the most! lol..that ish was crazy tho bc i almost came upstairs & went to sleep!...Just thanking God that everything was ok...I can replace a few sheets & hand towels...gotta get that burnt smell out! anyway...how was everyone else's weekend? :)
