Socks. We all have them. In all shapes, sizes, and colors. They are mysterious. Yes, mysterious because it still baffles me to this day how they elude me in the dryer. They are magicians too, as they magically appear in the next load of laundry. They reside normally in a dark drawer, or sometimes found in the pet bed chewed. They come in pairs, kinda like twins. They always match. Sometimes they get holes. They warm our feet or cover up unpainted toes. Socks are funny.
Socks have lots of responsibilities. They always have to stay together. They get balled up, folded, or neatly placed in a drawer. They always have to be ready when that drawer opens to go to work. Sometimes they get pulled from duty as they are a little worn and need mended. Sometimes we have to say goodbye to them when they have warmed our feet for the last time and there is nothing more we can do to save them. They serve many purposes.
Other than unofficial chew toys for the dogs, socks can be used to create the most incredible people toys. Yes, that’s right, we need and love things that make us smile, and who knew that a stupid striped sock could bring us so much joy! I never did, until I got my scissors out and started cutting up my loyal socks that resided in the bottom of my sock drawer for many years.
So, now comes the hard part. Do I leave my socks nestled all snug in the sock drawer, leave them to keep their magical powers that be in the dryer, or yank those suckers out of the drawer and make Sock Bunnies? I think we all know the answer to this one!
