This Just In!

Tonight, for the first time in 23 years of marriage, every white sock in my whites load had a mate at the end of the folding!

I KNOW.

The universe, it must have aligned with something. All I know is, I suddenly found myself blurting out to Jorge, "It's part of reporting this event, this laundry-folding, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often."

Imagine Jorge's expression after that! [snort!]

Now I know exactly how Chris Matthews feels! How can I explain it? It was sort of like that static electricity when you pull two socks apart, only better. Anyway, I now have hope that I'll match white socks again. Yes, change is definitely in the air. And in the dryer, too! How lucky can I get?!

I can only hope to experience that feeling myself someday. I am truly envious. :o)

Misty said...

I can't even imagine that....

Wow....miracles do still happen!!

With that kind of static electricity, everyone who wears those socks might get that feeling up their leg!

You are too funny.

What a feeling...it usually takes a great deal of tequila to make me that excited. But then I have NEVER matched all my white socks, ever. I have permanent orphans at the bottom of my laundry basket :(

I fully expect to see a 5" banner headline in ALL the big papers tomorrow...a red letter day, indeed!

Since miracles still happen, I am praying for one to happen on Tuesday.

The sock fairy was so kind to you! I have never had such luck in 17 years of marriage, LOL!

Becky said...

What is a "white sock"? I sort of remember buying white socks one time but the only socks in our drawers are shades of gray, tan, and pinkish. Hmmm... must be one of those universal mysteries.

Congratulations! How in the world did you do that? That must be a sign that things are going right and in your corner.... I take it for sure that your candidate will win! It just HAS to be so you don't have to be skeert any more!

AHHHH God is good and His mercy endures forever!!!!

I think your dryer now is a stargate to another universe. Let's take a ride. :)

Susan said...

Oh I'm thinking that will NEVER happen in my house till it's just me and DH...and even THEN it would be a miracle.

That video is hilarious...

And I guess I have another 11 years to go before I can even hope to experience such bliss. *sigh*

Dutch said...

You crack me up. I know what you mean about the socks. I always seem to have an extra one with every load. Have a great Sunday and thanks for the laugh.

Luanne said...

21 years--never happened. You have given me hope. Thank you--sniff, sniff.

Greg C said...

Congrats on the pairing of the white socks. However, I am still missing one so I expect you to give me one of yours to even things up. That's only fair.

Dawn said...

I even got a tingle here just hearing about the idea that socks could all come out of the dryer at the same time. I'm with Susan, I don't think it is going to happen until it is just me and DH . . .but maybe, just maybe a miracle might occur before that.

First, I loved Greg's comment!!! Share the socks Linda!

Now I've got that lovin' feeling. I thought it was gone, so gone!!!

That video is a hoot!

Oh, man...I am so jealous! I have never in my whole career as a household executive ever had all my socks match. My theory is that they somehow dissolve in the dryer, and that's where all the dryer lint comes from. Congratulations!
