Unfortunately, there's also this:
a basket of single, orphaned socks.
I can't seem to escape the single socks. They are the bane of my life! What can one do? Of course, I can't throw any one of them away.....what if the matching sock should suddenly appear? Then I wouldn't have a complete pair because I had a wild hair and threw the other one away!
Consequently, I have a huge collection of single socks. It grows weekly.
I have nightmares of drowning in piles of socks.
But at least they smell good!
Hanging clothes on the line to dry.......it's a good thing.
On a completely random note- 12 year old boys have a distinct........um, aroma after they mow the lawn. Just thought I'd pass that fact along in case anyone was wondering.
