I had a weird thing happen today. I was sorting through the sock basket which has largely been untouched for a couple of months as no one seems to have needed socks, and I noticed this very strange smell arising from within.
This is CLEAN sock basket. Some years ago I stopped sorting the socks for the whole family because who on earth has time for THAT? I put the clean socks in one basket and everyone can go dig when they need socks.
Well, I dug through the socks and, lo and behold, buried deep within the basket I found a rotten banana. It was black and slick and stinky. It was the cause for the little cloud of fruit flies. It was the reason for the rank smell.
I threw the banana away and I threw all the socks into the washing machine but I had to wonder...
Who would be walking by the sock basket with a banana thinking, "Gosh, this banana looks really good but I'm just too full right now so I'll have to eat it later. Let me just bury it in this sock basket for safe keeping" ??
Who would do that??
