I think this is a universal problem...you put a load of laundry in to wash and when you prepare to fold the socks, it seems that there is always one missing.
Back in the fall, I bought THE cutest pair of socks! They were black and pink and blue...flowers and polka dots. I am telling you...they were cute! I wore them one day...put them in the laundry...and of all the socks I could lose, wouldn't you know it would be one of those! Why couldn't it be a plain ol white sock...or black...or any other sock??? But these were my favorite!!!
I looked everywhere...did all the rest of the laundry. Nowhere to be found.I looked under my bed. I looked under my furniture. I looked in the closet where I kept my dirty clothes. I am telling you, I looked everywhere...for weeks. Seriously...it's months later and I had decided that the sock bandit had made off with my favorite sock. I've done laundry several times since then...and no sock.
Then, out of the blue, I pull out laundry the other day and lo and behold if that sock wasn't in the clothes. Where had it been? I mean...I had washed the same clothes before...I'd looked for it for months. and there it was.
I can only assume that the battle between the Sock Bandit and the Sock Fairy was finally won by the Sock Fairy!
Thank you Sock Fairy! I am so glad to have my sock back!
