"vulnerable to outside applications of force." - Dangly Bits @ 09:40 am

You know what I really hate doing? I really really really hate matching socks. You do all your laundry, your folding everything, putting everything away, and then you have socks. I have about 30 pairs of socks, all unique. It's such a pain in the butt to find one sock, then dig around for its match. I dunno why, it's just one of my pet peeves.

I think I'm just going to hit up Target and get like 25 pairs of socks, all exactly the same. One black sock, matches another black sock. No guesswork because they ALL match.

Or put barcodes on them and get a barcode-reader and a robotic arm and it can sort them for you. ;)

I actually did the above (get a whole huge pile of socks all at once, all the same type) at one point, it makes life a little easier. I'm running out of darks, though, I think the laundry machines have been eating my blue and black socks, one by one. I still have a nice pile of white ones, though.

I'm just gonna blow like $30 on some generic black socks, as long as they're all the same I don't care.

I have been matching my husband's socks for 31 years...its a labor of love. :) And I don't care WHAT the secretary says to Harrison Ford in "Sabrina," having one's hands in an underwear drawer is NOT like 'touching the Shroud of Turin." LOL

Well I hate matching socks almost enough that it would be worth getting married for. That and the whole love thing :)

Wait, socks match?

All I care about is if they fit on my feet... I mean, geez...

I've been known to wear an ankle-length sock with a full-length sock before... Actually, I don't think i've ever mixed colors though.

But all my socks are white. So it doesn't matter.

Multiple pairs of black socks when bought all match - no problems just pull two out of the drawer and your away. BUT once worn and washed they have a tendency to fade irregularly, stretch a little bit, and generally not look like pairs anymore.

My husband had 20 pairs of blue woolen work socks that used to drive me crazy. Not one pair in them!!

Well as long as they're SORT of close I'm happy.
