Yes you heard me right, 26 socks.
Honest to God, cross my heart and... well never mind.
That's the number of "extra" socks I have in my lost sock sack. Whenever I run across a loner I toss it in this bag in our laundry room and every now and then I sit down, dump the bag out and become matchmaker.
Usually I have quite a few that find their partners, but today I only found 3, which left 26 socks to face another month or so all lonely and alone.
Trust me on this. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't see it with my own eyes, but there are seriously 26 different kinds of socks here!!
Where do the others go??
I didn't even know that many different kinds of socks existed.
There must have been10 variations of Hanes socks: Different sizes, colored "Hanes" logos, some with the grey toe and heel reinforcements, some without.
3 or 4 kinds of Old Navy socks: Again, different colors sizes and styles.
Nike...Addidas.... and lots of plain white socks without any brand whatsoever.
Long socks, short socks, big socks, little socks.
SOCKS. SOCKS. SOCKS. SOCKS. SOCKS!
(Gah- am I starting to remind you of a certain Dr. Seuss book?)
Where do they all come from!?!
I firmly believe they were breeding in that there bag.
I guess I better go Google 'sock breeding' and figure out how to put a stop to it before it get's out of hand.
