n. A long or intense struggle with washing, folding, or pairing socks.
This allows me to help Noelle and Caedmon with breakfast, clothes and their very important, yet terribly elusive socks. I hate folding them, they love losing them… we live in constant sockmageddon.

I keep those irritating unmatched socks in their own little basket and when it’s overflowing I can't stand it anymore, I match and purge. Today was Sockmageddon.
