argyle socks. I think I'll help myself to THIS one!
Oh Yeah...This guy just bought a Van Heusen dress

And for the Coup de Grace...EVERYTHING gets turned
inside out"!!

hedgewitch said...

Yes, and he makes the clothes-hangers multiply and then suddenly disappear, too. Weird guy with some serious hangups.Probably more than 55 of em.

Kay, I'm playin--I've had another weird dream, people, so naturally, I'm inflicting, er graciously sharing it with you:

Giant Mistake

secret agent woman said...

I believe it - mine regularly steals socks. And has an evil habit of using static to attach my undies to my kids' clothing.

Ruthless bastard....the goblin not you.

HERE is my 55 for this week.

Serena said...

Oh, yeah, that goblin dude has creeped my laundry room a time or two.:)

Millie said...

See~another reason we goats don't wear clothes. We don't want to see any laundry goblins. The human wrote a 55 here. http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2011/08/25/a-sign-of-the-times/

Mijayami said...

Yes, we have a laundry goblin, too. And a mischievous ghost who does things like turning the lights on in unoccupied rooms and hiding useful items like keys and eyeglasses, especially when you need them most.

My 55 is here

TALON said...

lol! I loved it, Galen. You just know those single socks are all gathering somewhere having some fabulous parties while their partners languish in a drawer.

Alice Audrey said...

For a minute I thought you would mention the blue, argyle face.

Mine is up

MorningAJ said...

THAT explains everything! There must be a lot of them because I think everyone I know has suffered from their attentions.

I'm in this week.

Cad said...

Got me spinning, thanks.

Look HERE!

Mona said...

That laundry goblin should not allowed to exist!

Galen I played too!

HERE

Lydia said...

Haha, my husband keeps those single socks, sure that they will turn up someday. They never do. Now I know why/who!

Mine is up: Hide and Seek.

Have a good weekend. I'll be counting my blessings while watching reports about Irene. And the annual Star Party is out in the woods on Saturday 9-midnight...can't wait!

Nimue said...

Am glad i haven't had this trouble yet ...

Smiles this week !!

Akelamalu said...

I know him! He visits my laundry room on a regular basis. I don't like him much at all, however.

I had nothing so I wrote of

I must have a half dozen laundry goblins. They're especially fond of silk and lace. Love that picture on the milk carton.

So THAT'S what happens...what goes in the washer, stays in the washer, refusing to come back. ;)

Mine's up. Happy weekend!

Yeah, but who knew he only had one foot?

Not playing this week; busy battening down the hatches.

LOL
I'll do better next time, promise ;)

Donnetta said...

Okay--better late than never--as usual! But my 55er is finally up. D

Once you've finished reading this week's 55s, you might want to stop back by my playground again. :)

Someone is Special said...

I love this G-Man..

Someone is Special

lime said...

he is a dastardly little devil!

personally i always thought the missing socks transmogrified into wire hangers.

hope said...

And for the record, halfway through the book, I DID include me giving up and you encouraging me, as well as my sassy 55 of gratitude. :)

Unknown said...

This solves a life-long puzzle for me...Of course!...The laundry goblin! That little bastard has all my socks' other halves...I was just beginning to chalk it up to one of those mysteries of the universe which will never be figured out...
