I was folding some laundry. At the end, I had one leftover sock. This happens fairly often. But this time, I had a flash of insight.
What if instead of eating socks, like everyone always assumes, the washer or dryer is CREATING SOCKS?!
This could be the discovery of a lifetime! I quickly checked my sock drawer, and it looked pretty full. I couldn't remember the last time I'd bought socks, and yet there were BRAND NEW SOCKS right in front of me!
If new socks really are appearing, just think of the implications. I could collect them in pairs and give them away as gifts. No more agonizing over what to buy someone for their birthday, because who wouldn't appreciate a nice pair of clean socks!
I'm going to start keeping accurate track of my socks.
