The other morning, when I went to get dressed for work, I grabbed a clean pair of socks from my sock drawer. But, when I went to but them on, I discovered that there was only one sock and not a pair.
I checked the drawer high and low. No sock. I looked on the floor. No sock. I even looked at my feet to make sure that I hadn’t already put it on. (some mornings are like that). But, no sock. So, I had to go through the dirty clothes looking for a sock just to get me by for the day. Luckily, I found one. So, when I got down stairs, I wrote “socks” on my grocery list.
Now, I have been buying the same style of socks for the last 20 years, so, I didn’t think that it would be a problem. I wanted black, crew, synthetic knit socks, a standard fair in most stores.
When I got to Meijer (regional grocery chain) I headed for the socks. The first pair that I picked up were a black knit crew 3 pack. Great! But wait, they were argyle. Arrrh.
Now, I buy black socks for a reason. They go with anything so I don’t have to decide whether the navy would look better. Plus, I don’t have to deal with the black/navy cross match issue. So, if I already have problems deciding between black or navy, argyle will drive me nuts!
The next 3 pack that I picked up looked like they were black crew. But, upon closer examination, they were black, navy and gray. Since I didn’t want to deal with issues of crossbreeding, I put them back.
Finally, I found a 3 pack of black crew socks. They were not the kind that I would normally buy but they will do. After all, I was out of socks and they were black.
I guess that this could be an episode on Seinfeld.
