National Lost Sock Memorial Day

Yes today, May 9th is a wonderful holiday! Not celebrated according to the calendar, but again it should be. How many of you kind readers are identifying with this one? I know Autumn and I are so on board with this, lost socks do need a memorial day! I wish I had counted over the years how many socks have been lost. Somewhere between the washer and dryer they just up and disappear! Wherever do all those socks go? I wonder how many of us are asking ourselves that question over and over throughout the years…I have a feeling it’s a lot of people!

Very frustrating it is, those lost socks are no doubt having a good laugh at all of our expense. Perhaps somewhere in the world of lost socks a party goes on everyday. They get together and have many chuckles and as they are all snickering and having a grand time of it… When we all just want to know the answer once and for all! Where are those lost socks? Come on already, it really is so unfair and I demand an explanation!

Yeah, like those lost socks are ever going to come out of hiding and show themselves…No it isn’t going to happen. Hmm…I am just sort of in awe at their sneakiness and wherever they are hiding will no doubt remain a mystery. They are laughing it up at my indignation, at all of us and we can’t even start up a protest either.

Why, you may be asking? Well, it’s common sense of course, they are a secret society and nobody ever is going to solve this mystery! They are just too good at this, the socks have banned together years ago and they win! I can stomp my foot and they just smirk, those lost socks are just plain evil I say! So, today we will all celebrate Lost Sock Memorial Day, let’s pretend we just don’t even care…Any of you kind readers with me on this one? Autumn says, yes she is and that Twinnie gets much more irritated over this than me. Well, that was supposed to be a secret but Autumn says what the heck…Reveal her temper and maybe somewhere those socks (a few of them, anyway) are cowering.

The Twinnie has a worse temper than I do and those socks better remember her magic and the magical friends, so go Autumn! If anyone can get to the bottom of this perhaps the magic will reveal all, Yay! Oops, Autumn just wandered over to my place and told me she has tried…The lost socks are stronger than any magic that exists! Well, just go figure and who would have thought?

OK, we surrender, you stupid socks win and National Lost Sock Memorial Day is rocking stonger than ever…If we can’t win we can have the best celebration ever this year! Who is with us Twinnies? Any thoughts from you kind readers…Autumn and I would love to hear. Sharing is good and healing, we can vent our disgust about this sock thing on this post together! 😉 🙂

    You are so right a secret society and I believe my washing machine is a portal to another world , where all my lost stuff are hanging around having fun…
    oh man this is so hilarious 😆

    • Yay, you are laughing Soma and I so appreciate you loving this post! 🙂 I just had to write it, just so many lost socks to mourn. What a good one, I must agree my washing machine must be a portal to another world, too! All kind of fun they are all having, chuckling at us behind our backs! 😉 🙂 Thanks for your continued support in my silly, but must be written posts Soma…You rock, too! Hugs 🙂

    • I am happy you did read it Twinnie and you loved it, too…Yay! 🙂 It’s so comforting to know that you and soul sister Soma are with me about the lost socks and their evilness! 😉 You do need your sleep which I hope you get very soon, you had a busy day of it and need your rest! 🙂 TF ❤

    • Hey Russell, good to see you here and hope all is well with you! 🙂 Yes, of course there has to be a Lost Sock Memorial Day because we need to mourn all our lost socks! lol 🙂

  2. What a great idea – we support this day wholeheartedly! The only way to get around the problem would be to start a fashion for odd socks – everyone could join in and the fashion accessories are right there in our drawers 😉

    • Thanks for supporting this much needed day! 🙂 What a wonderful idea it is to start a fashion for odd socks and you are right…There they all are in our dresser drawers! 🙂

  3. Wonderful chuckles I had with this post, remembering many colors of socks of which I now have only ONE! Thanks so much for the glee, Gabby!

    • I am happy to hear you had both chuckles and glee Granbee! 🙂 I really do love spreading the laughter and all whenever possible. 🙂 Isn’t it the truth, we have many colors of socks without a mate. Thanks so much for reading this post of mine Granbee! 🙂

    • Thanks Aurora both for reblogging this post and also for your kind words! 🙂 I am happy you appreciated my humor, and you can relate to those lost socks, too! 🙂

  4. Lost Sock Memorial. How about when you accept the lost sock is gone forever, you get rid of the spare or find some ungodly use for it. Then one day you are putting clean sheets on your bed and lo and behold the missing sock falls out. Then the search begins for the spare that you did away with. Go figure 🙂

    • This comment made me laugh, I hear what you’re saying! 🙂 Even when we accept the lost sock is gone, out falls the missing sock…That’s happened to me and I have a feeling to others, too! We can be careful as can be, yet those socks are just too good at hiding out. Thanks so much for reading this post and your words on the subject of those missing socks! 🙂

      • Gabby, Just wanted you to know that someone was Freshly Pressed for blogging about missing socks. Guess they missed yours and mine 😦
        Anyways I put my post with a link to yours and Kudo’s on my front page.
        Check out the spoof clip I did on socks way back.

        • Well Cynthia, I sure appreciate you caring about our missing socks blogs and I thank you for including me on your page…I will be over to check it out soon! 🙂 You are so thoughtful and kind, it means a lot and oh well…I never expect to be Freshly Pressed anyway and this is just as good! 🙂

  5. Better late than never to join in on the “sock party” Gabby! Absolutely loved this post; you had my smiling and laughing up a storm! I just bought some new socks recently and some of them are already singles! The dryer…it has to be the dryer! It’s funny with our family now, because my son wears the same size as my husband and my daughter and I wear the same size. So, it’s really hard to keep them separate! Anyway, still laughing! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I’m happy you loved this post Lauren and also so good to hear it had you laughing and smiling! 🙂 It’s nice to have your thoughts about these socks…It has to be the dryer! 🙂 Oh on, the socks are at it already, you just bought new ones and already some have gone missing! They are just way too sneaky, aren’t they? 😉 With you and your daughter, then your husband and son wearing the same size it makes it harder yet! I am glad you are still laughing Lauren…Those socks don’t want us to be laughing so we do get a tiny bit of revenge sometimes! 🙂 🙂 xx
