Socking In A Temperate Wonderland

Socking In A Temperate Wonderland

The tree is all decked out with plenty of gifts now, and I’m glad to show that my feet were equivalently holiday-ready today. In fact, I really like this pair as far as socks for the season go. Not only are they really comfortable, but they remind me of a day spent frollicking in a […]

Monday Mickey Musings

As I believe I mentioned at some point, not every single pair of this year’s socks is a new one. This is one of the few “fun” socks I’ve had since long before I decided I was going to try to some wacky scheme to wear only some different, interesting stuff on my feet every […]

I’ll Drink His Health, For Your Socks, And The Day’s Socks, But Not For His

Daughter played the role of Cratchit today in “Bah, Humbug,” a music theater adaptation of A Christmas Carol (which may, in fact, be my favorite piece of Christmas storytelling in literary history). Her mean ole dad — that’s is, me — would never admit it, but there might have even been a little moisture in […]

Questionable Holiday Sock Decisions

Knowing what I know about the new likes and followers I’ve picked up since beginning the Great Sockscapades Of 2018, I have to admit that this particular pair gave me a moment’s pause this morning while considered the holiday collection in my drawer. But, hey, if the wife gets you a pair of socks that […]

Wearing All These Holiday Socks Means You Gotta Be A Little Bit Nuts

It seems a little weird to say, but it’s a sad fact that to my recollection, I have never seen any production of The Nutcracker in person. I say it’s weird because I feel like usually it’s the kind of thing kids go to see on field trips before winter break. Either that or they […]

A Double Haiku For The High School Holiday Concert

“He lied,” you will think Music socks aren’t holiday Oh but you’d be wrong Notes are quite jolly On Christmas band concert night Like I just survived

Infinity Socks: Endgame

The term has become inexplicably popular over the last week, but I can think of no better word to describe this new phase of our little sock project than “endgame”. Today begins an seemingly unending series of holiday socks to round out was has been an outstanding year, hand selected by my second son, who […]

Socks Of Christmas Future

This evening seemed like a good time to get a picture of Day Number 345’s socks in front of one of the many Christmas trees making la casa de Puddin extra festive. And by “seemed like a good time” I mean that I was laying on the couch by the fire with my feet up, […]

You Can’t Judge A Sock By Its Pattern

You Can’t Judge A Sock By Its Pattern

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the course of my 2018 Sockscapades, it’s that things often don’t turn out quite the way you expect. Well, at least that’s today’s “one thing I’ve learned”. I’ll allow it’s entirely possible that I’ve spouted that same phrase four times already this year and just don’t remember. I […]

And I’ll Finish This Year Of Socks, If Not For Those Meddling Kids

I’m not going to lie, I’m running out of day-relevant socks. Or, at least, relevant things to say about whatever socks I picked to wear. But then again, it’s December 9th. Day 343 out of 365. Zoinks! It’s almost the end of the year. And with that said, I’m guessing you can see why I […]
