According to Nag on the Lake, today is Lost Sock Memorial Day. This video makes a dramatic statement about the lonely lost sock. That may be the case for the ones hanging out behind the furniture, but I can attest that their mates are anything but lonely. I have a bucket full of them in my laundry room. They're not mine, but the remnants of raising a houseful of kids who don't care whether their socks match at all. In fact, those kids are probably wearing the mates to the odds socks in my bucket right now. I am slowly making cat toys out of the bucket of socks.
