Why Stating The Obvious Is A Good Idea

I usually try to avoid stating the obvious because–obviously.

But I have been going through a very difficult time lately. As you may recall, some beloved socks went missing. I was certain they had been consumed by the Dreaded Washer/Dryer Duo, but the repairman had the nerve to deny my claim.

The other day I dumped my entire sock drawer onto the floor. Then I played a game that was a lot like Concentration, only I used socks, instead of cards. I cheered every time I made a match. To my surprise, I made a lot of matches. Not only that, socks that I thought were long gone, reappeared.

A few weeks ago, I bought tuna fish and thought it was funny that the label said: Includes fish. Obviously, I thought, and rolled my eyes.

But after my sock discovery, I experienced a shift. Perhaps, I thought, stating the obvious reassures us about the contents within. So I’ve posted a sign on my sock drawer: Contains Socks.



I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. Obviously, stating the obvious isn’t really obvious. Am so glad your sock drawer is now clearly labeled “sock drawer,” Emsch the Mensch. Did you by any chance find a “bobble-headed pen” alongside the once-missing sock?
