The Island of Lost Socks
Have you ever had a sock or two go missing?
If you look down in your washing machine you’ll probably see a trap door. It’s actually always been there. You just never saw it before.
It’s easy to find your way through. You just open it with three knocks. And behind it you’ll find a river that leads to the Island of Lost Socks.
The natives of this island are the socks that got away from the awful, terrible life of smelling feet all day.
Now they run around in the sunshine enjoying magnificent views, and knowing they’ll never again have to fill anybody’s shoes.
They never get holes, runs or snags. They never get sold at half price. They always are warm and fresh smelling, ‘Cause this is sock paradise.
So the next time you notice a few of your socks have vanished without a trace, don’t bother to look in the laundry, ’cause they’re in a much happier place.
