Sock, Where Art Thou?

I have heard about the missing sock phenomena from various places (especially pop culture). It is apparently quite prevalent among washing machine users. Up until a few days ago, I have never experienced this curious phenomena. But now I can proudly proclaim how horrible it is to have only one sock. I don't even know what to do with it anymore! Maybe if another sock gets eaten up by the washing machine, I can make a proper pair again. Let's just hope their colours match, coz you have no idea how frustrating this is to an anal retentive, not to mention their King!

Almighty King, you DO realise that the meme you so kindly tagged me with is going on a rampage, somewhere over the other side of the fence in the local blogosphere!

You should kembang by now!

Zeem, take the washing machine apart. I'm sure the sock is held hostage somewhere in its bowels. Isn't is obvious? Your washing machine is now in league with your phone.

prob its held hostage in ur own pants or something...or u maybe it didn't even make it to the washing machine...prob u drop it somewhere along the way...

William: Can't la, the washing machine is public. The next person who used it is probably the not-so-proud owner of my sock.

Innocent^^guy: "held hostage in ur own pants"??? Why does that sentence seem so... salah?

William said...

It's doesn't sound salah at all. It's always mentioned on TV and movies as a way to, um.... enhance your package.

erm..i was trying to say like maybe it ran into one of ur own clothes say ur tshirt or ur pants....lets not think 'serong' here..

William said...

I've been told that my mind is stuck in serong mode. But then, it's highly unlikely for a sock to actually end up in a pants pocket. It must have dropped to the side while being unloaded.

Even while taking out all the clothes from the machine, I kinda noticed that it was missing. I looked in and around it, but nothing. I checked around my room, but nothing also.

Perhaps you have a sock thief on the loose. Perhaps a stalker. Perhaps you roommate keeps it below his pillow late night whiffs. Perhaps I'll stop here.
