Lost in Space

Well either that or they have entered another dimension, but where do all those socks go to

There was a time not so long ago when I would stick to just the one colour, usually maroon for some reason so that if one got lost nobody least of all myself was any the wiser and what did it matter if I had an odd number. After all, there is always one.

Now as I have gotten older and care even less about such things I have developed a penchant for brightly coloured one's and if you have yet to twig where I am going with this then be not amazed to learn I now have a great number of odd socks.

I could throw them away of course but we all know what happens then don't we - the other one turns up.

So my question here is, how long should I keep the odd ones before I throw them out and just as puzzling, why have my pair of Snoopy socks even after five years never lost sight of each other.

Re: Lost in Space

I actually did that yesterday following on from an idea by @RobC about port and starboard by wearing one red and one green... and on the wrong feet of course just for that bohemian 'man about town' look. :wink:

@dvorak It's an idea.

They'd go with my odd feet! :cheesy:

Oi @Minivanman !!!

Credit where it's due, that was me who suggested those socks!  :wink:

The other one would probably suggest some EU socks

Re: Lost in Space

The socks become a lifeform of their own and ultimately transcend into another realm, that or they end up behind the radiator or something... :2funny:

@twocvbloke @Minivanman What happens is the socks mate and then the male sock dies and shrivels to nothing while the female sock produces a coathanger thus why coathangers seem to multiply!:thumbsup:

Re: Lost in Space

Don't worry about wearing odd socks.

The time to start worrying is when you wear odd shoes.

Re: Lost in Space

Just the 2 of us live in the house but the ratio of male/female shoes is 10:1

Therefore a much higher chance of the female member living here wearing the wrong shoes....not of course that I would ever draw her attention to it.
