It's one of life's greatest mysteries!
Cus that's where the sock monster lives!
Mine seem to disappear in the dryer. It's my theory that the dryer sacrifices them and they end up in little bits on the lint screen.
It's rolled up inside a sheet or some underwear.
well... thanks for forever ruining the sense of mystery and wonder!
Sherpin stole it. Sherpin are night-prowling creatures, believed by many to be mere myth, who regularly steal things that you believe you've only 'lost', such as keys, cat toys, candy bars, small children, and most of all, socks.
I've heard in some washers they can actually slip up over the top of the tub and fall down inside the machine. Don't know if it's true, and I'm not taking the washer apart to check
I think it is a government conspiracy...
Could be right...but personally I think they are using them to sell to third world countries like africa...so the africans can have toasty warm feet...and they are using the revenue to fund the Vampire Zombie Dinosaur Invasion in Koretnam...
Sometimes a sock ends up inside the pant leg, sleave or pocket of the pants you washed them with.
Maybe if something gets spin around, that is just the right size, at just the right speed, in just the right temperature it opens up a black whole... somewhere there is a planet with people on it asking themselves where the **** does all this single pair of socks come from every time I empty my washing machine/dryer??? :-D
