Were they "beamed up"
Is there a WOOL-verine in the basement laundry room that's eating them?
What's happening to all of Dad's socks?
We started out with a LOT. When Mom and Dad were newlyweds and she asked him what he wanted for Christmas and he said "lots of socks". So she got him lots of socks. Apparently, she mis-heard him. It just SOUNDED like "socks".
So we had a LOT of pairs of socks in all different colors and styles when they were first married.
Mom gets them paired up after ALL the laundry is done, usually when Dad gets back from a long trip overseas on business and any strays are discarded, and there is order in the universe.
Where DO they go?
Mom thought maybe I'd run off with them, but I was innocent. I just like my stuffies.
So in memory of all the AWOL socks, we're naming today's Wacky Holiday . .
