Lonely Socks

Why does it never fail that when I put two socks in the dryer, only one comes out? Where do the renegade socks go?

I know this strange phenomenon doesn't happen to me alone. I have witnessed, first hand, other people scratching their heads in wonderment.

Is there a sock conspiracy? Who's behind the missing socks - the government, sock gremlins, UFO encounters, an entity living in my dryer? I've even considered that there's a time warp vortex that opens up and devours vulnerable socks.

I thought about marching down main street with other bewildered people carrying signs - "Socks Unite" but, I had to refrain because I couldn't find a pair of socks to wear to the event.

Should I be scared?

Fess up, my friends. Someone out there must know something.


  1. walking here with a smile. take care.. have a nice day ~ =D

    Regards, (A Growing Teenager Diary) ..

  2. There is an urban legend that says all the lost socks are stored in a warehouse in Yakima, WA. It would have to be a really big warehouse.

    I love the missing poster!

  3. Hahahaaaaa....I think the missing offender is with MY missing socks somewhere!
    How funny!
    Happy weekend Susan...

  4. I've solved the problem for me. I don't use a dryer but hang them outside to dry. : )
