I just always throw mine back in the hamper, so they get re-washed every time I do a load of laundry. The hope is that one day they will find their way into the dryer depths and be reunited with their spouse. Or bring their spouse back with them.
But they always manage to still stick around, alone, trying to pair up with the other singles but just not looking right together. I suppose I should give them seven chances or so and then throw them away. But that seems so unfair, so undeserving. It wasn’t THEIR fault that they spouse got lost. THEY were the sock that loyally hung around!! Why should THEY be punished?!?
Holey socks I can throw away. They gave up and wore out. But not single socks. It’s just not right.
How do you console (or punish) your single socks?
