What is this, where is it from. No one recognizes it, it must of been there for aeons! Where did I  find it where had it been, nobody had seen it until it materialize by the drying machine!

It isn’t yours and it is mine the boys have all been gone for a long time nor have I seen it on the washing line. Could it be a foreigner, could it be a plant could it possibly belong to your mum or your aunt?

It was not dusty,was  is it within a forcefield, is it an alien do we all need to keep our eyes peeled! I have inspected it thoroughly inside and out I was going to dis-guard it but in my mind there is some doubt.

I always thought they got eaten by  the washing machine, this one is on it’s own yes, but it is dry and it is clean.

I suppose it must of escaped, it must of survived I wonder where it’s partner is and more importantly is it still alive. I shall have to check the dryer in case the other one eventually arrives!

    You’ve never been to the alternate Universe? All the missing socks are there, along with mittens, gloves, scarves, and shoes, all lost by little children at one time or another…. Also, wearing two different socks these days is considered a fashion statement…. 🙂 I’m back!….

      I know it is a hard life , I have always known about the alternative Universe, what worries me is there must be a rift between this Universe and the alternative !! This sock has nothing to do with anyone in this house or who anyone who visits this house and it was found near the dryer , not the washing machine . Be afraid be very afraid….Mind you congratulations on being back in fashion.

    willowdot, I sometimes think elves and fairies had sock dances under my bed while I was sleeping, you know? LOVE THIS ONE, dear girl! Love it when you are light-hearted like this!

    I’m convinced the odd socks are just the tip of a whole, surreal world operating just out of our sight.

      You are quite right and now there must be a rift because this blue sock materialized by the dryer and is nothing to do with anyone in the house or known to us!! Be vigilant !!
