When you get a hole in one of your socks, do you say “darn it!” and then actually…darn it? I know some of you do! I’ve tried sewing and such but it’s not my thing, especially with mending socks. As a compromise, it occurred to me that in the winter no one sees my socks because I’m wearing boots, so why not wear a mismatched pair?!
If a sock gets a hole I add it to my collection of singles and marry them up afterward. If I bought all of my socks in the same style and color it would make it easier which is something I used to do. Maybe it’s a NYC thing but for years I only wore black socks. It was my signature “style” in grad school. Take that as you will.
As it sometimes happens in New England when you are visiting someone you are asked (or offer) to remove your boots/shoes to prevent bringing in mud or snow. For that I have slippers that I bring with me, so again, no one will know, except the internet!
