Lincoln, AL –

Finding courage from within, local lone sock described to reporters its harrowing journey to freedom. The lone sock made previous attempts to sever ties to the other sock in the pair, but independence only lasted mere minutes.

“Oh, sure. I tried the old ‘stick to the side of the dryer’ trick, but my freedom only lasted until the next wash,” the lone sock explained. The sock went on to say that the danger of being in a codependent relationship is that you believe you can never be whole without your mate.

At press time, the lone sock was tucked under the mattress, hoping to be matched up with a pink-striped little thing, if ever discovered.
