One thing I did manage to do during the sick week was a few loads of laundry (trust me- necessary). However, I did wash one load and then forgot it was there for a day and a half, and had to re-run it with some soap just so it wouldn't be musty-smelling. When I went to put it in the dryer- surprise!- there was another load already in it that I had forgotten about (see a theme here?). As I folded up the dry laundry, I was missing one of the toddler's socks, which are usually corralled in a mesh laundry bag but because of the circumstances were loose, and just figured it had gotten left behind and was in the washing machine with the wet load, which it was.
And so this got me thinking about socks. You always hear the stories about people losing socks in the wash, the dryer eating them, etc., but (and I'm probably going to jinx myself now) I've never lost a sock. I've had them get into separate washes, or find their way into pockets of other things in the wash, but I've never outright lost one and assumed the dryer ate it. So I wondered where all the stories came from. Do you lose socks? Does your dryer eat them? I'm not here to judge anyone if you do- I'm sure if you have more people in your family you are more likely to lose them- but I'm curious about this!
