I have four single socks that have no matching sock. Four of my favorite patterns of socks and their mates are all where? In hiding?
My husband suggests that they are not estranged. Just merely separated and that the other will turn up. But what if it turns up and then disappears again? Could it be that it didn't want to be found and they really are estranged?
Hmm. The things that one who is obsessed with estrangement thinks about!
