Here Be Monsters ...

or The Joy of Socks

What the Hell is going on?

It doesn't seem to matter what I do, they still disappear. I simply cannot understand it. It's beyond all logic.

Takes deep breath and tries to calm down.

I'm talking socks here or, to be more specific, I'm talking lack of socks.

I seem to buy vast quantities of them (all black to ease the decision-making process in the morning) yet I always seem to run out. Every time I come to wash them, there seem to be fewer and even when I know I put pairs into my drawer, they still seem to evaporate from there.

I used to think my washing machine was bewitched but I've been hand-washing them for a while now (another story) and they still disappear. I'm damn sure they can't be slipping down the plug hole. I even wondered if my son had developed a sock fetish but it's hard enough persuading him to wear them that it seems highly unlikely.

Clearly there is a sock-eating monster living in my flat. It must be small as I've not seen it yet but it obviously has a voracious appetite. And I am determined to put an end to its reign of terror - I'm considering installing CCTV in my bedroom and hooking it up to a video recorder.

I realise it's quite an investment just to deal with this sock shortage but, hey, you never know when a camera in the bedroom may come in handy, right?

Ever wondered if you might be the sock monster? I think you walk in your sleep, open that drawer and eat the socks yourself.

Dizzy, EE ... You have such a low opinion of me? I keep telling you I'm shy and innocent

Leyn ... Now there's a thought ... it would certainly explain the awful taste in my mouth when I wake up some mornings. I was blaming it on the vino! I think I'll still install the camera, just to be sure!

Raptor ... Easy, I paint a big R on the right socks and a big L on the left ones. For future reference, I use a very fetching shade of pink nail varnish
