Socks missing socks...

Well it has been a while since I posted. I have one of those questions. I now have 5 socks that are missing their respective partners. How does this happen ? I mean I take them off at the same time. The washer and dryer are not eating them. The only thing I can think of is that I am leaving them in hotel rooms every time I travel. Think of it as a calling card.

Maybe the hotel staff is stealing them ! Or TSA is filing them somewhere as evidence ! All I know is each week I am missing another sock. Maybe it is old age. First the eyes. Next my socks. Then my hearing. Oh no !

The one thing is certain, I cannot throw the singles out. You never know when their counterpart will return. It is probably safe to say they will not show up. But you never know....

Simple fix - buy only one type of socks - then matching up after losing two evens it out.

I know, it´s an amazing fact. Socks lost in combat. How on earth does it happen. It has been wandering arround in my head my whole life. And I refuse to accept it. But don´t worry. I am studying statistics for my psychology studies and my teacher is a real genius so I asked him The Question I have been wanting to ask somebody my whole life but never dared ( I am 40, go figure...)I know he will come up with something brilliant. Once I get his answer I will forward it to you.

You should try putting your wanted partners up here.

We're just trying to help socks find their sole mates.
