*to be read in a melodramatic and mysterious announcer voice* mwahahahaha!
I found it!!
One of the great mysteries of the Isle of Laundry, one that has baffled me for years, has been solved!
As I was cleaning out toy boxes the other day, lo and behold, lay the portal of lost socks! A vortex where socks lose their way and get sucked into the lost world that is the gigantic toy box of infinity….
All along the dryer got blamed for being the portal. For taking wayward socks to their doom, never to be reunited with their mates….
But no, the portal lay in the much more vast, treacherous and mysterious area known as Toy51. Where the mysteries of the universe unfold to reveal a nest of socks awaiting their return to the safety of the sock drawer at long last….
Brave traveler that I am, on a two day journey to this quicksand of Lego, cars, Meccano parts and severed Batman heads….I returned triumphant with no less than 25 socks in need of immediate washer attention…having suffered the ravages of being buried for untold ages…. at long last to be reunited with mates that have waited months, hoping that they too would finally be released from the vast wasteland that is the sock drawer of no return….
