Shocking Sox Scandal Rocks Family

As June was getting Alex packed for his upcoming week away, he told us he was out of clean socks. June had just done the laundry and there were no socks to be found, so where were they?

Alex, like me, regards shoes and socks as burdensome and takes them off as soon as he settles in at home. I think he does it unconsciously as he reads or fires up the laptop so the socks end up wherever he happens to be. I wasn't fully aware of the magnitude of the problem until I went through the den with a leaf blower and counted up what I found under couches, tables and chairs. Total count: 18 socks.

At least it's an even number.
