Have you ever wondered where socks disappear to when they get washed and dried? I always seem to have at least one sock without a pair when I finish the laundry. Well, now I have the answer. The dryer eats them! How do I know? Let me tell you.
I had finished another load of laundry, and as I always do, I took the lint catcher out to clean it. I normally do not look in the space where the lint catcher sits, but out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw a dust bunny. I bent down for a closer inspection. Sure enough, it was a dust bunny. A giant one that looked to be about the size of a hare. I pulled it out. That's when I discovered that the dust bunny was attached to a pair of underwear.
Hmmm, I thought and tossed it on the floor. I looked inside and saw that there was something else still down there. I couldn't reach it with my fingers, so I grabbed the closest thing I could - a paint brush. I maneuvered the handle into the crevice and came up with something else. A sock!
To make a long story short, the paintbrush and I pulled out two pairs of underwear, and four socks - all covered in dust.
So ladies and gentlemen, learn from me. If your socks go missing, open up your dryer, lift out the lint catcher, and see what your machine has been snacking on.
