There were two children getting snow gear on to go outside. Neither of them had clean socks in their drawers. They were discussing what to do.
child 1: She won't let us go out without socks.
child 2: Maybe there are some in the clean laundry baskets. (there weren't)
child 1:Monica could knit us some.
child 2: Not in time to go outside. I know! Lets look for dirty ones down in the playroom. That's where we leave them all anyway! (They go pounding down the stairs and had soccess.)
And that is why there are no socks, clean or dirty in the laundry for them.
