Hi All! I'm back after haiatus and just in time for a very significant observance! That's right, today is May ninth which means its National Lost Sock Memorial Day! Where on earth do all of those single socks run off to? Is there really a "sock fairy" who is playing a practical joke? Do they slip into another dimension that is now FULL of billions of sock singletons? Did the dog eat them? Or maybe those single socks are just out on a very successful Tinder date. It's been a conundrum common to all of us since the dawn of time, or at least since the first commercial laundry dryer was released to the public in 1938.
No one seems to know when National Lost Sock Memorial Day began or who conceived of it. Regardless, this is a good day to remind ourselves of the multitude uses for the lonely single socks leftover after their twins mysterious departure. You could make a sock monkey of course but there are actually so many craft projects that have been imagined by some very creative people. A wine bottle cozy, iPhone holder, a hair scrunchie, or even a coin purse! I personally use my lone socks to dust and clean (I use old tshirts for this also but that is for another day).
If you prefer to fight against this phemomenon, there are some pretty clever ways to do so. At any rate, today we say "here here!" (or "where? where?" perhaps) to all of the socks that have gone before us and all of the socks (and cold feet) that are left behind. So here's to National Lost Sock Memorial Day!
