I went to a house party the other day. It was raining so everyone took off their shoes by the door. When I took mine off I realized I was wearing 2 different socks, blue and black… ugh.
To be fair, they looked the same when I was in a rush, scrambling to get out the door. But it seems like I’ve been getting pretty lazy with my laundry lately. I rationalize that no one can see my socks through my shoes so I don’t really care what I have on. I throw all my socks in the drawer and pick them out when I feel like it. Snowman sock and Santa sock? They’re both Christmas so they match… right?
Not even close.
My sock drawer has gotten really bad lately. It’s at the point where I might just donate them (is that ok if they aren’t matched?) and go buy new pairs.
I should have listened to my mother. It seems I’ve developed a ringing in my ears that sounds awfully like “Pin your socks!”
My mom always made us pin our socks so that they would stay together in the machines. It’s the best little trick that saves a lot of time. I’m going to invest in some right now!
