I want to know what the deal is with socks. I am talking about tiny kid-sized socks, and how they seem to mysteriously migrate all over the house, usually without their mate.
How do they get into those strange places? I have found socks (or should I say a sock) under beds, in toy boxes, in dress up purses, in shoe boxes, on the kitchen table, balled up in my purse, in the pots and pans, and in my bed under the covers like it had been tucked in for the night. This happens even after I confiscated all socks from the children and put them in a drawer they could not reach.
And how is it that they are separated from their mate, and their mate can never, ever be found? Loads of laundry can be washed and dried, and there will be no sign of the sock's mate for months. Then one day, the missing sock will turn up somewhere - totally innocently as though it had been there all along.
I am starting to see a sock conspiracy by sock-making companies to force you to buy more socks. I am starting to think that kid socks they are actually robo-socks. They are implanted with tiny little microchips and tiny little robo-legs that help them move about and avoid detection like creepy, colorful spiders. Ew.
Now I am going to have to turn corners warily at night if its dark, for fear of encountering a creepy robo-sock. I am pretty sure this is the most logical explanation as to where they are all going.
