The Evidence



I have long held a theory that socks mutate into coat hangers in the dead of night. But only one per pair.

What I want to know is, how do nice smart wooden hangers turn into those cheap nasty wire ones? I never buy them but the wardrobe seems to be full of them.

It is absolutely true Pip. How on earth would I have come by the coat hangers pictured? I have no idea. I always say no thank you when asked if I want them in shops (except for trouser hanger type which I accept graciously) As you can see I thought I would be clever and catch the socks out by buying unmistakable pairs from M & S. This carnage has happened in less than 12 months.

The wire ones come from dry cleaning but I never have anything dry cleaned if I can help it. It doesn't matter how gorgeous an item of clothing is, if the label says Dry Clean Only it goes back on the rack.

So, it must be that socks frequently turn into wire hangers.

Is this the first recorded instance of the driving term 'hanger left' or 'hanger right'....

Stop ironing too. The most pointless human task and so environmentally costly.

I like extreme ironing tho, if it gets a man to iron his own shirt then I'm for it.

I tried buying 7 pairs of the same socks and they still turned into hangers.

Pah! I buy around 25 pairs of socks a year:

a) 2-3 pairs are eaten by cattle

b) 2-3 pairs give up the ghost.

I end the year with nothing.

Somewhere there is a pile of 200 socks. Probably the same place all that lost airline baggae ends up, a srt of elephats graveyard of stuff.

Extreme Ironing? I love it. The only kind to watch.

There is no pile of socks TT. They mutate.
