    How do you lose socks?

    Somehow between the washing machine, the dryer, and the laundry basket socks get lost. Strangely enough, it only happens when I'm at home, not when I'm at school.

    I haven't counted, but it's dozens.

    Same here. I can't miagine living with only a week's worth of socks.

    Admittedly, most of mine are still new and stored away for when needed.

    Around ten pairs. All wool; seven pairs are argyle with the other three being plain navy which is all a man really needs.

    Just the plain coloured ones :

    - for summer : black, light gray, dark gray, dark blue, mid blue, dark brown, light brown, each time at least four pairs. Then a few pairs with "fancy" colours like red, yellow, purple, etc...

    - for winter : same colors as above, and same numbers of pairs in each colour. Also a few pairs with "fancy" colours as above.

    Add to this some 20 + pairs with patterns and all the ones used for sports.

    My oh my, suddenly I come to realise that there are way over 100 pairs of socks in this house.

    Should I consult.....?[​IMG]

    I guess Navy socks don't count either. [​IMG]

    Actually, I've been planning on picking up some fun socks. Just some brighter colors in plain. Maybe reds, orange, and yellows.
