I have an eternal pile of mismatched socks. They now live on my desk. And while a few are eventually reunited with their mates, the rest remain in a miserable huddle of lonely hosiery. I used to put them in their respective drawers, so they could wait it out in the company of their coupled drawer-mates, but I ended up realizing that many have spent years of loneliness in the dark recesses of the sock drawer...and let's face it, when your mate goes out one morning and doesn't return for years, well, he just isn't coming back. I have my theories as to where they might go.
But it could also happen like this:
Whatever the reason they disappear, the probability that they'll return is slim. So, I've given the ones that were left behind an ultimatum.
Either you find your mate, or you'll find your way to the bin
And so the pile was formed on my desk. And it's days are limited. If those socks aren't re-matched within two weeks, out they go.
So, start praying you mismatched little buggars. Here's who I think you should see:
So, now I have a question for all my faithful readers (and even those that aren't...we aren't picky):
How many lonely socks do you have hiding in your drawers?
