5 Mythological Creatures That Wreak Havoc on Our Lives
Have you ever wondered why only one sock goes missing, or what happened to something that was in your refrigerator one day, but is gone the next? What causes your child to sneak into your bedroom in the middle of the night? What ever happened to your favorite underpants? Why you keep losing your keys or sunglasses? You can't blame yourself or the kids, that's just nuts! The answers to all these questions can be found here. These five creatures are the culprits behind many unexplainable household conundrums.
Which of these creatures do you have the most problems with?
The One-Footed Sock Monster
The One-Footed Sock Monster is an invisible creature that lurks behind your washer or drier. He loves fresh, warm, straight-from-the-drier socks. Since he has only one foot, of course he only needs one! So if you have ever wondered why just one of your socks goes missing, blame the One-Footed Sock Monster! I think I have two or three of them!
Gremlins are sneaky little buggers! They lurk all over your home and wreak havoc in any way they can. They are most known for hiding small objects such as keys and sunglasses. If you've ever searched for something, only to find it in a strange place, such as the freezer, or dishwasher, the gremlins are to blame!
The Boogie Man
The Boogie Man is an extremely talented shape-shifting creature that preys upon children. This guy can manifest himself in the form of monsters, shadows, insects, and can even enter your child's dreams. He will do anything he can to keep your child from going to bed and staying there! He is particularly fond of hiding under beds and in closets.
The Refrigerator Man
The Refrigerator Man is an invisible creature that lives inside your fridge. He very courteously will turn on the light when you open the refrigerator door, but the man's got to eat and entertain himself somehow! The Refrigerator Man is known for eating all the good food, changing the colors, consistencies, and odors of objects in your fridge, as well as drinking all but those last few sips of milk or orange juice.
The Underpants Gnomes are tiny creatures with pointed hats that sneak around at night stealing underpants in any way they can. What they do with the stolen items is unknown, but somehow they make a profit from your abducted undergarments.
