Guessing for Gloves: A gloverly interlude!

Once in a great while, all the gloves come home to roost...

Some problems have no solution. All we can do is to share the pain and ease it a bit with laughter. For instance, whyizzit that: takes so danged many tries to find a matched pair of gloves? Just how many single lefts can there be?! And where the heck do all those right gloves go?!

For a chance at a new pair of great gloves, want to guess how many flocked at our last glove gather?

Recently, Steven rounded up all of the gloves he found in the garage. He didn't try to match them up, just threw out every disreputable, unusable glove, put the rest in a sack and took them off to the laundromat. Here's what he brought home to sort.
