Dig in

March 29, 2017 - 2:23pm
It was one of those mornings. I honestly thought I had plenty of time to get ready for the day. Then it became a day of wardrobe mishaps. I put on one skirt, only to remember that I needed to make a repair to a seam. Then I put on tights, only to realize they had a hole. I chose a different skirt and the hook and eye were bent and I had to use pliers to it to fix it. One shouldn't really need pliers to get dressed in the morning and yet, there I was, standing in the kitchen doing home repair on my skirt. When I finally had the skirt and tights right, I reached for my shirt and it wasn't on the hanger. It hadn't fallen on the floor, wasn't in the laundry basket, wasn't in the laundry room-it was just missing. I asked my spouse if he had seen it and he suggested I look behind the washer since he knew some things had fallen behind it. I found a towel, a tank top, some underwear and a placemat, (what the heck? How did that even happen?) but not my shirt. Sigh. I had to rethink everything. How does a shirt just disappear? As my mom used to say, "It didn't grow legs and walk away." It has to be somewhere, right? Then again, I have plenty of socks with no partners who seem to have done exactly that. Seriously, I know it's one of life's biggest mysteries, but where are all those single socks? Thousands of years from now will someone dig into the ground and find an ancient single sock burial ground? Will my shirt also be there?
