Should I be worried?

Dear bloggers

Should I be worried?

At work, I opened my laptop bag today and found a damp (clean) black sock in it. I have no idea how it got there. It is mine though.

Two hours later, whilst walking across a busy road, a blue and white stripey (dry) (clean) sock fell out of my trouser leg. I picked it up pretty quickly, in case anyone spotted (and worse still, mistook it for a pair of pants).

Distractedly yours,


  1. Is this a one-off or a worrying trend towards becoming a scatty old lady?

  2. The other day I took a pair of shoes out of my wardrobe and found a pair of knickers stuffed inside one of them.

    "Have you ever found small items of YOUR clothing in an unusual place?"

    My colleague and good friend P (PF!) says I'm going to be one of those mad fifty-something older laydees who wave flags and do that kind of b-a-a-a-a-a-adly in-step charismatic dancing to "these are the days of elijah" (or similar)

    PS I'm miles away from being fifty-something.

  4. My mum says "Grey hair is hereditary. You get it from your children". The same could be said for whatever's afflicting you!

    Or, more sinister, maybe you also have a sock monster. We have one who eats single socks so that the other one is partnerless for however many months/years it takes me to admit defeat.

    He/she also makes all white socks very very dirty-looking and unwashable. At least, I personally think it's the kids running out into the garden in their socks that does it, but they seem to disagree there is any problem with this whatsoever.

    You don't want to know what I've found stuffed in clothing in public are not alone!
