Since HF was in the academy, these little black fuzz balls started appearing all over the house, but mostly in abundance in our bedroom. Here's a little pile I gathered. We didn't know what they were for so long. At first we thought it was mouse poop. There were so many fuzz balls that I though there must've been a whole rat family taking up shelter in our house (I am frightened of rodents and was ready to blow the place up with dynamite. Or at least move out.) One night when I came upstairs to go to bed I saw HF down on his hands and knees examining these little black bits that were sprinkled all over the place. We still didn't know what they were! Then one day when HF got home from work and I was just waking up, I sat up and watched as he removed his socks and began rubbing and picking off all these little fuzzies from his feet without even noticing. "It's you!" I accused. Then we felt pretty dumb for not realizing what it had been all these months. He went from wearing flip flops everyday to combat boots and thick black socks. So of course we wouldn't know where it was coming from. The only frustrating thing about it really is that our vacuum won't pick it up so I have to gather it all up by hand.
Anyone else have an infestation of black fuzz balls all over their house from their man's (or woman's) boots and socks?
