Kirkwood, MO -- Mom washes clean shirts after camping. Scott Tanenbaum, 12, had no idea which were the clean socks or underwear, but he was sure he did not wear the two plain t-shirts on a scout camping trip over the week end. They camped at a cabin owned by an Illinois scout troop. Mom Kathy washed all the clothes found in Scott's day pack, as they smelled of smoke and generally "outdoorsy". Besides, they were in the same pack with a pair of soggy, muddy socks.
The washed shirt was a bit damp, so it was hanging on the exercise bike in the basement.
Scott had planned to wear the plain red one to school. He has a complicated color scheme he follows through the week, depending on the occasion. “Where is my red shirt, mom?” It was in the basement, just like mom said.
