CJ Takes A Reader’s Request

CJ has been asked to address an issue, by a follower, Ted,  over at Twitter. She decided to tackle this most interesting request, as gently as she could, so as not to send people away in a cold panic.

Okay, Ted. If you simply must know…

One might easily believe this conclusion could be valid. However, upon closer inspection, nothing could be further from the truth.

You see, dryer lint is a gradual gathering, or harvesting, of the sock’s essential tissues. In effect, what you have here is actually a case of, well, organ stealing. There. I said it.  Every time a sock enters into that Hose zone known as the dryer, small, evil (and invisible to the eye) entities actually deploy,  going to work in excising parts from the sock-body; a sock-heart today, the sock-stomach the next time, you see where I’m going.

Don’t believe me? Go. Right now. Go open your sock drawer and examine any pair of socks. Look closely, you may detect an actual hole starting in the toe or heel of the socks. Sneaky, insidious, and oh so gradually.

Then, one day, the entire sock is gone. You’ll search all through that load of drying to find the mate to a single sock. Well, I am here to say, just stop looking. It is no use. You’ll never find it.

Those entities try, but rarely succeed, in taking all the ‘snatchings’ as they make their hasty getaway when the buzzer goes off. (You will notice the white bits in the lint — evidence of sock-bone snatchings they dropped as they escaped out the duct)

And that is what dryer lint is really made of.

Dryer lint is the sloppy result of thieves engaging in sneaky harvesting of sock-body parts.

I hope this will clarify things, Ted.

  2. Oh No, and I’ve been subjecting my poor socks to this all that time. It’s drying on the radiators from now on. Or maybe I shouldn’t wash them at all but let them come to a more natural end attached to the feet they enclosed for so long?

    • Why, thanks, Sheryl! I actually crafted THAT in a total time of 10 minutes, editing and all. Apparently my crazy bone was hot to get on it. Weirdly, this is sometimes the way I actually entertain my circle as we stand around chit-chatting…Am I nuts?
      You bet I am! And darn proud of it…took me years to go off my rocker….
