So, I needed inspiration today and grabbed a prompt out of my prompt jar. It read: Socks
“Got you now!” I threw the empty laundry basket over the top of the little furry creature, effectively trapping it. The little beast had been terrorizing the laundromat for weeks, startling people as it streaked across the floors.
I squatted down to get a better look. It had two long floppy ears in very strange patterns. Wait a minute! Those weren’t ears, they were socks, draped over it’s ears. Mismatched argyles at that. I sat back on my heels. “What are you?” I asked, not expecting an answer.
“Sock Monster” it said flipping it’s little sock tail in my direction.
