Well, after three months, I am proud to announce the discovery of my first lost sock.
It's entirely possible that I have lost socks on this rotation before, but they must have been lost in pairs, as this is my first encounter with the lonely sock, the only one of its type sitting sadly in my sock drawer, surrounded by matched pairs of other varieties.
I think it must be lonely. Do you think socks pair bond like wolves, or do they not really care which sock they end up with at the end of the day?
Sometimes I mismatch socks on my feet, and now I worry that I may have encouraged the other socks to try and force them out. It's entirely possible that socks are strongly against miscegenation...
