Wanted: The other 49 socks



You've got to be kidding me.

How does this happen?

These are the contents of my "missing sock" basket on top of the dryer.
This was AFTER I had done all the laundry in the house
and matched every pair I could find.

Seriously, where do they end up?

Haha. That's a lot. I think each family should only wear one kind of sock. Everyone's socks mach each other. Problem solved! If your feet were all the same size.

I think some of Caroline's matches may be at our house! I have so many Macy socks that look just like that floating around alone in her drawer.

There is probably at least one of each missing sock in all the places you stopped on all those cross-country journeys. Have you checked Nebraska lately?

Ang said...

I just did the exact same thing. It's a mystery, I tell you!

You know, it truly IS a mystery. Maybe one of those things we can find out in the next life. We'll look through the "Book of Where the Missing Socks Were" and say, "ahhh...okay, now I get it." I'm always surprised by how thrilled I am when I do find a missing sock and match it with its partner. I mean really, it's a full-on, visceral thrill.

OH my gosh! That is so many! Is Caroline eating socks?

When Kevin was little his Grandparents told him that the drier ate all of the mismatched socks! Maybe you have the a hungry drier at your house, too!

Erika said...

I'm with Natalie...I think Caroline is eating them...ha!

You will find them:
in a few purses, under the beds, stuffed in the bottom dresser drawer, inside the pant legs, used as sleeping bags for Barbie and her clique, in the hair do-dads basket, in between the cushions, as a bookmark, with the toes cut off to be leg warmers, painted as an artistic statement, inside the shoes, behind the furniture, behind the tv, and yes, a few scattered behind the dryer. ALL places I've found them in the past years. Especially after I've given up and tossed the sole surviving sock.

Happens here all the time :)
Check in the couches, and under the beds!

Thats the mystery at our house too. But you definately won, I dont think we've ever had that many at one time...
Now I usually just wear mismatched socks.
Let me know if you figure out where they all go....
