No, I’m not talking about your significant other..I am talking about the lost matches to socks building up in the laundry room. Now before you say..”Whoa there..I do not want to invite thirty kids over to make a sock puppet theater!”, that isn’t where I am heading with this.
Ok, ok…you can use a few for a sock puppet project if you wish; however, socks make excellent rags. My mother “claims” she is never missing a match, yet I seem to collect about 15 to 20 over a few months.
Every few months when you are sure the match just isn’t going to show up, move them to the rag bag. Cut a slit at the top so you know that sock is now a rag when you wash them.
Which brings us back to the missing partner. His fate is now sealed, and he will become a rag…if he ever shows up.
