Wearing matching socks is highly overrated, IMO. My DH buys all the same brand and color, no mating of socks required. Simplifies doing laundry.

Consistency throughout socks is easier said then done. They always seem to be different sizes!

I only insist on wearing both knee socks or both crew socks...it's too distracting to keep feeling like one sock is falling all day. My doc thinks it's a sign of my instability that I look like any other granny, until he sees my socks...Hello Kitty and Optimus Prime DO go together!

My mother used to collect and wear socks for holidays, hello, kitty, animal patterns etc. She continued to wear them when she was far north of eighty. The Doctors all thought she had dementia but, she and the little kids she ran into had some fun. When she died my sister and my nieces took them and now they wear them when they go on charity walks and runs. The seeds of madness have been passed on.

A person could stick to plain colors or all the same, for socks and underwear - or whatever they want in life - and that's fine if that's what they want, but I like a little more whimsy then that.

I thought of you all when I got some more ankle socks this morning !!!

I have a collection of bizarre "toe socks" that I wear to my Pilates classes. They always get a laugh and just putting them on tickles my funny bone.

As long as you don't think of us while buying your underwear...

Speaking of which...I've never understood people who buy fancy underwear. It's hidden under your pants it's whole life. Why does it matter if its frilly or has printing on it?

I understand the soft or silky thing. It must feel good on the skin. But as to color or statements...I'm in the dark.

I'm not touching that one with a 10-ft pole. Maybe PF will enlighten you!

A few holidays ago, we spent the day with my sister's family. My sister has four children. Mother was there. All four children were playing. My sister was elbow-deep in dishes. My mother observed and then said most sourly to my brother-in-law, "Do you not think it is time to gift your wife a dishwasher?" Without missing a beat, he said, "I gifted her with four! And she doesn't use one of them to give her any help."

I'm not sure whether Mom is speaking to him yet. Frank wishes he could be so blessed.
