Letter 2: There’s a Strange Sound Coming from the Basement

Dear Eli,

Remember I told you that I couldn’t find my socks? I looked in Dad’s drawer, and in Nate’s drawer, and they didn’t have any socks either. Then, I checked all of the laundry baskets, and there were no socks there, either. I looked in the washing machine and the dryer, and still no socks. Something very strange is going on. Where could all those socks be? Are you sure that you didn’t take them?

Wait, there’s a strange sound coming from the basement. It sounds like a whole lot of cotton rubbing together. Hmmmmmmmm, do you think it might be all those socks? I better go check. I’ll let you know what I found.
