The Theory Of The Missing Socks
I remember one time my cousin Jen, now the mother of 5 boys, told me her theory on missing socks. She felt that when a sock went missing in your dryer it got reincarnated as a coat hanger. Her theory has always stuck with me, and every time I find that I have a sock missing, inevitably one of my favorite dress socks, I seem to find another coat hanger. The coat hanger is always one of those metal wire ones, the kind that leave hanger bumps in your shirts and rust stains on your favorite white shirt. So really, when a sock goes missing, you are not only loosing a sock, but you are also gaining another headache of a bad coat hanger.
