Socks for Social Distancing, Day 6

I promised something more fun for today than yesterday’s argyle, although truth be told, argyle tops the charts for me pretty much every day. Even so, I’m hoping today’s doughnut themed display doesn’t disappoint.

The news coming in from the outside world doesn’t seem to be getting any more fun as the days pass, and I’m beginning to wonder if this whole “sock posts everyday while we’re hiding from the Dread Virus Corona” might have been ill-advised. I mean, they said 14 days at first but let’s be honest, that’s not looking so promising at this point.

The real problem here is not necessarily the unknown nature and difficulty in forecasting the outcome of the first global pandemic in a hundred years although I guess that might be a part of it. A little. But, no, the thing at issue here is that the wife and I just finally finished bagging up all of the socks from 2018 after finding a charity that was excited to get them. And while we haven’t delivered them just yet, I only kept maybe two dozen out and I’m not digging into the charity bags.

That would feel…wrong.

So that’s the point, kids. This social distancing business can’t go on for more than 25 or 30 days total, or I’m going to have to start buying new socks again. And believe me when I tell you that’s going to start a whole other set of problems.

In the meantime, I’m going to go count the pairs in my socks drawer. If anyone has any requests, the phone lines (aka, comments) are open!
