How does this happen? 13 odd socks in a drawer I cleaned and sorted a month ago. I do laundry every day. Things get worn, dirtied, washed, dried, and put away… but how does this happen? I don’t think I randomly lose trousers, bodysuits or t-shirts, so what is it about socks and their tendency to wander? My mother won’t be impressed reading this, as she will see the little galaxy sock bought only a week ago features in the above pile. There isn’t any clothing left on the line, no random socks stuck by static electricity to the top of the dryer. Nope, they are just lost. That’s just odd.
