Socks are adverse to commitment By SAIMI ROTE BERQMANN Thomson News Service My keys! Has anyone seen my keys? A pen! Why is there never a pen near the telephone? Who has the scissors? Where are my glasses? What happened to the phone book? I believe heart attacks in this country would dramatically decrease if inanimate objects stopped wandering off. When I wail about not being able to find something, my mother is totally unsympathetic. She says, "A place for everything and everything in its place." OK, I concede that a bit more organization might help. But some things are beyond the aid offered by file drawers and bulletin boards. Like socks. Socks have caused more problems in my family than teething, toilet training or puberty. It's a morning ritual for all of us to run through the house frantically searching drawers, baskets, the dryer, and yes, even the hamper, for matching socks. Lest you think we are so destitute that we can't afford socks, I should tell you that I buy socks like most people buy toilet paper — often, and with no expectation that they will be used more than once. How do countless pairs become countless singles? Socks are confirmed bachelors. They rebel against the commitment of living forever with one mate. We encourage'their tendency to infidelity every time we say, "Oh well, they're both blue, close enough." At our house we have swinging single socks who visit sock bars and bring home other singles. At least, that's the only reason I can come up with to explain how single socks that don't belong to any member of our family end up in my laundry basket. But seriously, folks. Attempts to unravel this mystery at our house have led to a few partial explanations. My son has acid sweat. It eats right through brand new socks after only one or two wear- ings. If the acid dissolves a large area, the sock is thrown away and its mate joins the troupe of singles. Another reason for single socks is my daughter's commitment to color coordination. If she's wearing a red and white outfit, she's likely to wear one red sock and one white one. And everyone knows that once you wear a mismatched pair, you start a continual cycle. If you wear that red and white pair today, the next time you need red socks, you have only one so you pair it with a blue one. The laundry gets done and that first red reappears but the second red one is now dirty. A basket full of unmatched socks has sat in the corner of my be.droom for so long that it's now considered furniture. Sock sins are not limited to the Bergmann household. Gayle, a friend, says she goes "trolling" for socks in her husband's drawer. "I kind of dig from the bottom and rotate them, figuring that eventually a match will rise to the top." Jenny, another friend, packed dozens of single socks into a large box and lugged it up to the attic. Why didn't she throw them away? She's afraid to. She knows that if she throws away a sock, that's when the mate will come out of hiding.
