Wondering...

This thread is for those weird thoughts that pop in to your head. Mini vents, pondering, whatever comes to mind. Here's mine to start...

Didja ever wonder about the mismatched sock thing? I mean really. Right now I have 6 unmatched socks and their mates are nowhere to be found. Let me be clear here, I have lots more than 6 unmatched socks...the 6 I am talking about are MY SOCKS! 6!!!! Thats just dumb. If its the stupid dryer sending them into another dimension I'm considering putting a note in there asking for mine back.

When I buy socks I make sure to buy multiple pair of the same exact sock so when one inevitably goes missing I do not have to get rid of its mate.

Me too. Which makes this even more odd. Seriously. (I should mention I have a LOT of socks because I have two daughters who habitually raid my sock drawer. In an effort to have socks of my own to wear I have a LOT of socks.)

At the moment I have one black, one grey, one light grey, one grey edged, one solid white and one white with a purple diamond on it.

This never used to be a problem when I went without socks for about 4 years.

Where the heck did you live? Going without socks is only an option here if you like freezing your feet off.

I was actually in NH and MA at the time. I would go without socks in sub zero weather. Believe it or not, you really get used to it. It is kind of like all the people who live in FL or other warm climes who need to put on a sweater if the temp drops below 70.

As soon as I started wearing socks again, I needed them or I was freezing. When I went without my feet hardly ever got cold.

my friend is also a bare feeter... and she almost ever wears Birkis.. you know Birkenstock shoes on your side of the water?

She wears "real" shoes only at work or in the heaviest winter.. and socks more rarely.. when we went hiking one day she couldn't find any socks and went barfeet in her hiking shoes...
guess what happened?? ;o)

about the mismatched socks..
don't you know they disappear into a parallel Universe?

Sure do. That is what I was wearing when I was sockless. I would even climb mountains in them.
