Tiny socks

Even tiny socks seem to get lost in the wash. Only two matching pairs here. I know mine do...there is a gnome in my washing machine, I am sure.

I think there's a vortex in all dryers that eats socks...
I know I have one in mine!!!

The machine was built to steal one sock per wash. ;)

Somewhere in the middle of the earth is a huge sock repository. It seems every washing machine does the same thing - sorts and loses one or more sock of every pair in every wash.

I don't get it. Maybe that's where the phrase comes, "Sock it to me"?

My first reaction: Aaawww! My second: This is why most of my socks are the same kind and the same color (black, of course)

More Socks
by Jules Feiffer

I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 8 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 6 pairs of socks plus 1 grey sock and 1 blue sock.
A week later I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 6 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 4 pairs of socks plus 1 black sock and 1 green sock.
A week later I go to the laundromat to do a wash. Included in the wash are 4 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash come 2 pairs of socks. The other socks never show up.
The next day I go to the laundromat. As an experiment I put in nothing but my last 2 pairs of socks.
Out of the wash comes a body stocking. In the body stocking I find a note.
The note says: "Quit trifling with the laws of nature and bring the machine more socks."

What happens to the things you put in the washer because they sometimes come out different from those put in? Strange. I like the vine in this picture too and imagine it is some kind of flower when it is in bloom. it must be lovely.

Oh, so sweet!! I love the idea of gnomes in your washing machine. My gnomes occasionally return that which they borrow.
