This story appeared in Jim Baen's Universe magazine and in Best of Jim Baen's Universe in 2006. It was inspired by the age-old questions that have stumped philosophers, academicians and rank and file humans for centuries: When you put two socks in the washer and only one comes out, where do the other socks go?
