Socks in the hozone: Sniglet

According to comedian Rich Hall, a sniglet is “any word that doesn’t appear in the dictionary but should.”

He created the word hozone to describe “the place where one sock in every laundry load disappears to.”

Here’s a picture of the leftovers after my most recent laundry day:


The hozone at our house has super suction.

Oh, hozone, won’t you please send my other socks home? Their lonely partners whimper in the night.

  1. I always loved the sniglet ZIZZYBOTS – the marks your eye glass pads make on your nose. I’m the lucky host of two of these. I think I need new glasses.

  2. Zizzybots – good one! I have those too. Hozones and zizzybots – maybe my life is more exciting than I think.
