"I Lost a Sock" - D Lang/M Gordon/J Wolfe, 2001
Several weeks ago, I noticed something lying next to the sidewalk ("pavement", as they would say here) near John's office. It was a single bright blue sock. A sock. How do you lose one sock? A jacket, maybe. Perhaps even your shirt, if you took if off on a warm day and hung it on a fence or wall. But a sock? How do you lose a sock and still walk around? Here's what I saw that day...

A few days later, the sock disappeared. I figured that somebody clearing the debris off the sidewalk probably picked it up.
BUT...then this morning, here's what I spotted, only a few yards from the original location...
So the mystery - and the workings of my imagination - continues. Is this the same sock? If so, how did it get there? Did it muster up its own energy and fling itself into the tree, or was it placed there by some do-gooder?
OR...is it actually the sock for the other foot?
