Regarding socks? Are you kidding me? Oy, this poor guy really HAS run out of ideas!
I know! Somebody needs to get him a camera so he can at least generate stories around the goofy pictures he takes. That's a huge source of material for a blogger like him.
HEY YOU TWO... I CAN READ YOU!
And besides, I have plenty to say about socks. For example...
I absolutely hate it when I step in something wet and get a soggy sock. I immediately have to whip it off and toss it in the hamper and go get a fresh pair. It's very stressful to have wet socks you know.
And, what's up with those little ankle socks? They give me the heebie-geebies just thinking about wearing them. It makes me feel like I constantly want to pull them up, but of course I can't because they're too short.
In fact I'm getting claustrophobic as I write this. Bottom line is socks must be able to at least be above those big ankle bone knobby things.
Another thing that bugs me is the fact that I have at least 19 different varieties of common white crew socks, so when it comes time to match them up you need to be a CSI to figure it out. Some have a thick ribbing, others have thin. Some are pure white while others have a gray toe and yet others have a gray heel and toe. And finally, some have a knurled top rim while others have a plain rimless top.
What I'm most tempted to do is throw away all the socks in my drawer and go out and re-buy dozens of new ones all in the exact same style and brand. That way, I'll never have to match them up again and can simply just grab any 2 single socks and slide them on my feet. Can you imagine how liberating that would be?
I know... I sound like a nutjob, but don't laugh - socks can play a very important role in a person's well being. You can't tell me I'm the only one whose day gets completely thrown off by having your baby toe sticking out of a hole. It's a horrific torture! In fact, I'm pretty sure they use that tactic in prison camps to get people to talk.
So what about you... what are your sock issues? Or... what is your sock style of choice? There are more than you think: no-show, ankle, low-top, quarter, crew, over-the-calf and tube. Yikes!
Thank God I've at least settled on one single style.
I can't even imagine having to match up all of those as well!
