a tale of the lonely sock

31 Jul 2011

Inspired by this.


I'm sure you have at least one pair of socks, am I right? They're very helpful. When it's hot, they absorp the sweat on your feet. When it's cold, they keep your feet warm. They keep your delicate skin from the rough part of your shoes. They're simply amazing!

But, what would happen if we lost one of them? There's nothing we can do with the remaining, lonely sock. We can't buy one sock to accompany it. We can't wear it with a non-matching sock. It would be forever alone, forever forgotten. We would throw it into the deepest, darkest part of our closet. We would throw it into the trash can. We would buy a new pair and walk away with them.


A pair of socks are meant to be together. They belong to each other. And if I were the left sock, you'd be the right one. Now there's only me: the remaining, lonely sock. It's only a matter of time until I get to be thrown into the closet. I hope I would find you there and we would be a pair of socks once again.

  2. Cute socks! I use to buy "fun" socks all the time, now I just wear boring white sport socks. Don't you hate it when you lose a sock?! I have a son, and we have about 30 pairs of socks, most of which are mismatched due to their mia status.

  3. Really great post... this made me smile and yet I felt a touch of sadness as I read it... really inspiring. :) Sea Marie
