Holiday Insights : Lost Sock Memorial Day

Holiday Insights : Lost Sock Memorial Day

This has to be one of the saddest holidays of the year, the day we mourn the loss of that one sock that always seems to be lost.

We all have a sock drawer filled with unmatched socks, as the webpage suggests. As hard as we try, we simply cannot find the mate for the missing sock, it has vanished. For some reason, the journey from laundry hamper to washer to dryer to drawer is a deadly one for a sock. I've heard different suggestions for this event, some have suggested the spinning of the dryer, the chemicals in the washing soap open up some sort of portal into a different dimension, some have called it the "Sock" Dimension. Or the same chemical reaction opens a worm hole to another part of our galaxy. So on the other side is a planet filled with unmatched socks that magically appear as ours disappear.

How do we celebrate this day? As it is a memorial, perhaps the lighting of a candle, in hope the missing sock returns. We are to search for it and when we can't find it, toss out the unmatched sock.

Sounds like a plan.
