Eaten Socks

My mom always used to say her dryer would eat socks. Turns out ours does too.
There were 22 solo socks in this pile. Hugh and I left them out for a week and when their mates didn't turn up, I threw them out. Turns out I should have waited one more week before chucking. There were a couple more solos in a final load of laundry and we had mismatched a pair of Calder's socks. This means that technically we only had 18 solo socks! Hahahahaha! I cannot for the life of me figure out where all these mates would have went. Our dryer must have been seriously hungry.


  1. We keep a random sock basket. Every month the kids take the pile out and I pay them 25 cents for every pair they make. I throw out the ones that are in that pile for more than 3 months. It is surprising how many times a random will find a pair months the sock went on a holiday somewhere???lol

  2. A few months ago I was washing a small load of laundry and put it in the dryer. When I went to get it and fold it one of my daughter's socks was there and she hadn't lived with us for about 2 years nor was she doing her laundry at our house. I sure laughed over that one...the dryer really does eat socks and spit them out randomly!
