Most every time I go to the laundromat I come home with one or two less
socks than I went with! As I did today.
My theory is all their customers' missing socks are recycled to China by
all the laundromats and resold in Walmart or dollar stores.
Or aliens are collecting them for some interesting reason.
Winder how many other items I'm missing?
What's your theory?
You know it's time to clean the refrigerator
when something closes the door from the inside.
There is a simple, totally affective, way to prevent this from
happening in the future... quit washing them! After a short period of
time they will begin to take on a life of their own and nobody would
want to get near them, let alone carry them off, so the demand for
them would eventually reduce to zero. Problem solved.
No. The aliens are fascinated with book *matches*! Any smoker
could tell you that their matches are ALWAYS missing. It's because
the aliens come and collect them when they're not looking.
Every once in a while, you'll hear some astronomer report on
sighting some new supernova. In truth, this is really one of the
aliens' home planets going up in a giant ball of fire when
some dolt like Frodbelg or Gnifgnorf "accidentally" lights one of
the matches... without noticing all the *other* collected matches
It is for this reason that many smokers switch to using LIGHTERS -- out
of concern for all of the other Frodbelgs and Gnifgnorfs out there!
Many years ago I came home from the laundromat with a little extra:
Some black lace woman's underwear.
My wife questioned that one!
Now I'm on my 2nd marriage and we have our own washer and drier.
I looked all over the house for a missing sock, and my wife found it
next to the bed.

That;s the actual answer I believe. Sometimes you do lose a sock, but
sometimes you come home with a sock that someone else left in a
machine and you just think that you lost the other one since they all
One of my cats has a thing about my socks. He regularly pulls one out
of the hamper and drops it somewhere. Since he gets under lots of
furniture, the sock is likely to end up almost anywhere.
