"Oh yeah, hold on one second I saw them in the basement."
Then I run down stairs, make sure the basement fridge is closed and look in the mirror for a few minutes before I come back up.
" Shooot, I can't find them anywhere. That is so weird. I'll wash them and drop them by later."
You'll never see those socks again. When I find them, I usually keep them for own kids or throw them in the trash.
Sorry. But they're just socks.
