Over the years, one of my main "honeydew" chores is to do the clothes wash.

I've always been puzzled why "one" sock of a pair of socks goes missing... so often?

Today, while making my grandson's bed, the bottom sheet (which fits snuggly to the mattress, had two mismatched socks belonging to my wife in the corner when it was originally folded.

Is this where the missing sock goes and we throw the other one out and never notice?

BTW, I'm not adverse to wearing a pair of mismatched socks.

Any other theories?

I believe they transmogrify into cloths hangers and re-materialize in your closet. Some aspects of physics we still don't understand.

It's actually a tax imposed by the federal government, they just don't like to let the general public know about it. As with other similar things orchestrated by the government, they have some kind of weird math that determines the exact percentage of socks that they take, versus the percentage they allow you to keep which is why it isn't EVERY sock that has it's match go missing. I believe the percentage is something off the wall like 37.86542%, which is why you will often find that the matching socks you DO have end up having a hole in the heel or toe.

I'm pretty sure that there is a parallel universe that bumps up against certain dryers. This universe is inhabited by a race of one legged midgets that slip in and steal 1 sock at a time.

I believe there are "Dark Brown Holes",,somewhat anemic black holes that are situated at various points. They don't have enough power to capture both socks from our washers and dryers, just one. The top of the fridge is another spot, demoleculizing seldom used items slowly.

Along the same mystical lines, under your stove is a storage drawer that transforms pie pans into leggos and an occasional action figure sticky with chocolate,,,,coincidentally many animated DVDs become sticky with sugary residue merely traveling a few miles to and from the grandkids (a condition which upon discovery causes small humans to sing a chorus of "IT WASN'T ME") So many mysteries, so little time,,, scratch

I say they revert to dark matter, which is composed of all the missing socks from the beginning of sockdom.

My thoughts, exactly.

Actually, on a serious note, I've sometimes noticed that my socks cling to the side of the washer and so I miss them sometimes when putting everything into the dryer. And they'll come out with a different load. Of course, lately I've gotten into the habit of wearing mismatched knee socks, so I really don't care if the gremlins eat one or two of them anymore. Just make sure you double check the washer before starting your dryer load. =)

Late last night and the night before,
Tommyknockers, Tommyknockers, knocking at the door.
I want to go out, don't know if I can,
'Cause I'm so afraid of the Tommyknocker man.

Its pretty crystal clear where all of your socks go! Its none other than thievery by a rogue faction of the underpants gnomes (SP) known only as S.S.L.F. (Sock Stealers Liberation Front) Usually they leave little trace but the lint balls from said socks and the faint smell of dryer sheets. Once, however, I found some small scribblings on the inside of my laundry basket which said:

Phase 1: Collect Socks
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Profit
