A Sock Exchange
Okay, we all have them. Those stray, lonely socks without a partner. We always hate to throw them away, hoping their mate will reappear from under the sofa or maybe in the dog’s kennel. Well weep no more, dear friend. Here are ten things you can do with your single sock.
Number one: Make a sock puppet. Okay, okay..that’s what everyone does. But it still works, right? Who cares if it scares the cat?
Number two: Put some nice smelling potpourri in it (lavender is great) and put it in your lingerie drawer.
Number three: Use it as a duster. Get rid of those dust bunnies under your couch. While you’re there, give up on the idea of finding the matching sock. The dog ate it.
Number four: Wack your dog with the single sock, for eating the other one. Watch his eyes, please. Just a tap, to make you feel better.
Number five: Use it as a cover for the cold compress when your child gets hurt. It will keep the compress from getting too cold. Wash the sock first, please!
Number six: Cut the foot off of it, and slide it over your bottle of lotion. It will help keep the lotion from getting so cold in the winter.
Number seven: Tie it loosely around the belt loop on your son’s blue jeans, to remind him to stop leaving the socks on the floor for the dog to eat.
Number eight: Use it like cheesecloth. Put herbs or tea leaves in it that you would boil in water. Put the herbs in the sock, knot it and put it in the pot. Washing the sock first is up to you; I guess it depends on who you’re having to cook for.
Number nine: Put your knee-high hose in it for washing. Just put the nylons in, know the bag, and throw it in the washing machine. It will prevents runs and rips on your knee-highs.
Number ten: Throw the sock away. I’ll forgive you.
