Fantasy Humor Mystery Things you missing socks mysterious things

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? Why is my wallet in the freezer? And who put an empty milk carton back in the fridge? Harry Ferguson, assistant DA, is not only plagued by such questions, he has a murder to solve.
