Allergic to socks?

Socks have been on my mind lately. I recently had a hole in one of them as I was getting ready for work. How very rude! 😦

I don’t know what percentage of people wear socks. I don’t know how many wear them only because they have to. I know of one lady who wears Birkenstock sandals–swears by them–but no socks. I’ve know her for some time, and I’ve only seen her wearing socks twice. Our nephew Sean, now in his 30’s, didn’t wear socks when he was younger, for whatever reason didn’t like them. (I think he wears them now though.) Some wear toe socks; I can’t imagine those being very comfortable!

So, just for fun, do you wear socks? Do you like to or only because you have to? I know this is an odd topic for me, but every once in a while it’s nice to mix things up and not take things so seriously.

May your feet be happy. May they be warm. May you never take this humble, but necessary, part of your body for granted. May they serve you well.

  1. Fantastic blog! Do youu have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform lik
    Wordpress or go foor a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I’m completely confused .. Anny tips?
    Appreciate it!


    • You could start out with WordPress and then do a paid platform later. WordPress also has some paid options, by the way. I think your choice of paid vs. unpaid is both a matter of budget and goals. Think about what you want to accomplish, and then decide what’s the best choice for you.


  2. I like socks, as a matter of fact, I have a sock fetish. Some people have a shoe fetish (me included I guess) but socks are my downfall. They keep my feet warm in the winter and unstinky in the summer when wearing sneaks but NEVER with sandals although that is a teenage thing maybe they’re just making a statement as teens often do and perhaps our Senior generation! Holiday themed socks are truly my favorites. Halloween, Easter, Christmas (I own a dozen pairs of these). I think it goes back to my teaching days when I taught 6 and 7 year olds. The kids would gleefully anticipate what crazy designs my feet would reveal. Yes, I am a sock lover!
