The great sock caper

Just about every time I do laundry, I come up one sock less. Today, in an effort to foil whatever force it is that's in charge of socks or laundry or both, I snuck in one extra unmatched sock as a sacrifice. That proved to be futile.

Eventually, I'll be down to one pair of socks. And then there were none.

Eh. I think the way it works is you end up with one sock of each color. And they keep coming back if you try to throw them away. =P

The key is to only wear socks of one type and color, thereby making the entire concept of sock "pairs" meaningless.

I have the opposite problem. My the socks in my sock drawer are increasing in number. I never need to buy socks; they seem to procreate on their own.
