I have sort of cured this problem, I buy my socks in bulk and have all identical socks, no matter how many manage to escape I can always have a matching pair.
No I'm a woman, but mainly wear trousers as it's so cold where I live, hence the need for socks!
Teaspoons, and pens, and several sets of keys !!!!!
Definately revolting !!!!!!
I got my hubby to pair his socks up before he put them in the wash basket, when i put them out to dry i keep them together on the line.
This plan is working well, so far.
I have atheory: In the EDDA, the olden skandinavian mythology, there its said that Loki, god of lies and tricks, would come to the end of the world battle, ragnarök, on a ship made of human nail clips...so I think, whay not something like that behind...I mean, someone EVIL collecting the "lost socks" to build a terrible, towering SOCK GOLEM and TAKE OVER THE WORLD! HARHAR! (its pinky and the brain if you ask me). (feral grin...)
If there are a bunch of socks in your drier exhaust then you could have a fire there if you do not get them out of there soon. Call someone to look at it.
my mother always used to ask the washing machine repairman to look for socks while he had the machine apart. lol
The single socks I've been finding must be yours? If you get all mine can you send them this way?
Not just socks my knickers vanish as well down the portals and away to the other side or are they getting taken.
Why socks? To keep the pens and gloves company.
Last time I went through my sons sock drawer he had 17 single socks!. And there was none in the wash.
Maybe a sock eating alien...is allergic to pairs but can eat one-sies.
there is another planet some where and their always in need of socks so quess what
on the other side is a huge sunny meadow where the socks can run free without feet.
This is a fact, it just vanishes.
