The Missing Sock

The Missing Sock

A Non-conformist?


At its worst?

Not choosing “lost” in the dryer

“Jumps basket” instead


( This poem was inspired because my daughter did some clothes washing at my house yesterday and I thought it quite humorous when I saw this sock laying on the floor after she had picked up her laundry and left.

The reason being was that the little sock had missed going into the laundry basket and she had to pick it up twice to put it in, but then, after she had left, I noticed it was still here–“left behind” on the floor! Seemingly it couldn’t “get lost” in the dryer so it decided to “jump the basket” in an effort to abandon its duties!😊 Just my imagination running wild again, LOL, but it gave me and her a couple laughs!

Hope it does the same for you😊)
