:) I was thinking exactly the same thing today. I'm not sure it will ever happen, and I'm learning to consider it a work of mercy. ;-)
We have that same problem over here. Along with the dirty boxer shorts. Sigh.
I found that leaving those items out of the wash altogether and allowing the laundry litterbug to take care of those items himself has amazing consequences! I felt like I was negligent in my wifely duties but it has had amazing changes.
FOREVER...or until he runs out of clean socks and has no time to go out and buy more... : )
