You know, I've been away from here for quite some time now, and I just logged in to see what's up at at ATS, when I saw this question. I just had
to answer because I've also been wondering for most of my life about why I rarely do a load of laundry and end up with an even number of socks
either. I thought it was like a universal mystery - never to bve solved.
But just earlier tonight, I accidentally came upon the answer! In the dryer, there is a little space underneath of the lint trap, barely big enough
to get your hand to reach down under there - unless you have a really small hand like I do. But usually, there's no reason to be reaching under
there, and it's not visible by just looking in the dryer to make sure you got everything. But those socks land when the dryer stops and ineviabely,
one, sometimes two, but usually one single sock is hiding under there! Next time you do laurdry, be sure to reach your hand in the little space under
the lint trap. See if you come up with a sock!
