Today's sock census: 11
11 socks were found on the floor at the end of today. Some pairs, some singles, but a total of 11. And I know they didn't start the day on the floor.
It's a bit of a mystery to me. Only 8 of the 16 feet in my household wear socks. And the socks I started my day with are still on my feet. So that makes 6 feet in the household that could be responsible for the socks...
Unless the dogs have started wearing them. Is there a canine version of cross dressing? Are my dogs Trans-specied? Where does that fit into the GLBT umbrella?
A further analysis of the socks does confirm one adult (ahem, male) pair of socks, and the rest are child-sized. Which I guess would make more sense for the dogs. Really, the girls' socks would be too big, but the dogs don't have the strength to fetch the bins of newborn clothes that contain our stash of tiny socks. Nor do they have the thumbs required to open the latches...
So it's an ongoing mystery. Where do the socks come from? Is it the dogs? Do the socks reproduce? If so, I can vouch for their fertility. And rapid gestation.
Any clues? Anyone else have this problem at their house?
