It's been going on for years.

Every couple of weeks, someone new disappears.

Are they being held hostage?

Have you seen any of them in your neighbourhood?

@ehBeth,
Damn, you've got some fine socks there. Too bad their unpaired. If I knew where your odd socks were, maybe I could finally repair that bra of mine too.

@ehBeth,
i understand wearing "unmatched" socks is all the rage - i can't be wrong , can i ?
i'm sure even the toronto newspaper fashion pages have reported on it .

is at any different than wearing unmatched jacket and slacks ?

@hamburger,
We only have black or white socks - that eliminates the "lost sock" mystery.

hamburger, we rarely wear socks anyway. It's been too hot for socks - actually
I'm longing for some rain...

@ehBeth,
even "the new york times" has picked up on the latest fashion trend news :

A Salute to the Stray Sock
By BRENDAN I. KOERNER

Published: October 3, 2004


MILLION theories aim to explain the missing-sock phenomenon, from the rational (porous lint traps in dryers) to the fantastic (sock-swiping elves). Whatever the real cause, the effect is that the surviving half of the pair has ceased to be useful, except as a rag.

But must it be that way? What if the victim decided to reject fashion orthodoxy, and its emphasis on harmonious hosiery?

probably the same hassle as boarding the boston to montreal flight in may with a "one-way ticket" (after our montral to boston cruise) - our boarding pass was marked "999" - security just about turned us inside out !
should have taken the greyhound . it would have been a 7 hour ride , but probably little hassle crossing the border .

@Region Philbis,
Reggie, can you pop in and see if you can spot any matches for these

I'm particularly concerned about the one on the far left as I bought 3 pairs of them. Five of them are missing!

@hamburger,
SEVEN hours by bus from Boston to Montreal? How many stops do they make? I drive it in under five. Have done so several times.
