Socks are the Enemy – The Struggle is Real
There are very few households that can boast an affection towards sorting socks. There are even fewer individuals who voluntarily admit to liking sock folding. Socks are the enemy.
We usually need two socks per day. Most of the time those socks are expected to match. These expectations lead to the struggle.
Washing, drying, and finding the matches for those necessary stockings are the strategies for conquering the footwear fight.
I recognize that socks are the enemy, but in the name of positivity, I want to give three good reasons for folding socks.
- You are able to meet the social standards for wearing matching socks.
- You are validating the notion of “sole” mates. We all have a match out there somewhere. (pun intended)
- Folding socks can be therapeutic. Yes, there may be a few strays at the bottom of the basket, but you have just made organized sense of your foe. You have systematically and successfully sorted, matched, and put away that big ol’ mess. Your family’s feet can thank you for your service, and now you don’t have to look at that pile of perpetrating socks for at least two or three days. 🙂
Fold away, my friends, fold away!
