In one of those miracles of the meteorological kind

Night is warmer than day

My feet disregard the socks

On the other side of the world

Through the stargate known as television

Men in lycra peddle the Tour de France

If I step into the wormhole of time

I too could be cycling in Normandy

I could storm them on the beaches

As long as I don’t wear socks

The Underestimation of Socks


Sock (n.)- 1. a garment that is worn around the foot and lower leg that provides comfort and prevents the feet from unwanted odors and bacteria.

I believe socks are highly underestimated. Being just a small piece of cotton, wool, or nylon, we often fail to remember their importance in our lives. What fascinates me is their versatility and the fact that we all need them.

I really do believe that socks are one of the best inventions, thanks to the Ancient Greeks and Romans from the 8th century BC. Socks come in all diffecurrent-situation-cozy-socks-tea-bed.-@themoptoprent types of colors, shapes, and materials and are used for different purposes. For instance, low-cut compression socks are for your everyday athletes, black socks that come up to the low shin are for adults who work in offices, and knee-high knit socks are typically worn for lazy days in bed and a cup of tea (hint: Tumblr).
