Socks and I have a strange relationship.

I never complain if I get socks for Christmas because no one gives those things to me. They know that every day is Christmas: I go hunting for them on my own.

Funky patterns with jack o' lanterns and friendly bats, toe socks with helper elves and snowflakes, purple and grey-striped hooligan knee highs, Dalek socks... these are all my friends.

They would be life long friends if only they didn't run away from home.


Where do pairs go? Why did I visit my nephew's Jiu-jitsu class last weekend and have to take off my shoes, only to reveal my deepest shame: a grey sock on my left foot with a pink on my right?

Really though, I didn't care that much but if I did, think of the life long trauma I would have endured.

So today, TAY, Your suggested Topic(s):

  • Where do those missing socks go? Why do they vanish? Your best theories, share them with us.
  • Is our chicken's name Lorraine? Is she red hot like pizza supper? And does she have our socks...
  • Your Favourite Chicken Recipes/Ways to Eat Chicken


  • You could talk about all those new games you got this week or Smash's release tomorrow too, should you fancy. You know you want to.

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got for the Case of the Missing Socks. It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.
