The Missing Sock

Laundry's a tedious task that is just what I think Curious, and I must ask 'cause this has me on the brink Why is one sock always stubborn? Why does it leave it's partner behind? When matching 'em up I am so forlorn are they just trying to be unkind? Maybe they think it is hilarious to play this prank on me I do not think it is funny Together these socks must be!! Eventually they all get together Maybe they party when I'm not home Do they plan which sock will sneak away next? Do they have a plan where it will roam? It sure makes laundry exciting as I play this guessing game Maybe these woolen beauties don't want my interest in laundry to wane.

Congrats Kimberly on "The Missing Sock" being featured. I thought this was a woman's way of driving her man up a wall. My wife can put 4 pairs of socks in the wash and when they come out of the dryer, there are 3 pair and two that don't match. Vince

A delight to read this a.m., Kimberly. I tell you, they're sneaky, alright. When you're looking for them, they're impossible to find. However, when you're not, there they are! Audrey
