Singles' night

OK, I know we are hardly the first to have this problem. But do we get a gold medal or something for the rather extreme extent of the collection? A growing, increasingly frustrating, and surprisingly colorful mound of deserted socks. Loners. I have searched high and low. And let's not talk about the adult socks pile; they deserve a montage of their own. Forget the obvious and oft asked "Where do they go?" question; I would love to know, but the black hole theory seems the only real possible answer. That, or a finicky, hungry drier. More importantly, what to do with all of these dear, but now useless, socks?

Okay, this one just scream "write a book"! Where do the socks go? On a field trip to the laundromat? To the zoo? C'mon, I bet C. has some great ideas. And, let's allow the ones left behind to have some fun, too;)

Sounds good, Jack; run with it!

Here's a couple of ideas for the one-footers:

Make sock puppets.

Use them as dusters-they make great quick furniture dusters and polishers for that matter

Tie a bunch together. attach to a stick and you have a great mop.

And I agree with Dixie-there's a universal story in there...I was immediately drawn in...

Those are some great ideas, Victoria; thanks! I love the mop idea. It would be so pretty, though, I would have a hard time putting it to work...
