So that's the secret!

As I was sitting in traffic today I realized why men are seemingly always happy and women suffer from mood swings. Socks. That's right, it's as simple as a pair of socks. I couldn't find any of my "warm" socks to wear today while I was out Christmas shopping (walking through parking lots full of snow and slush), so I wore a pair of Steve's socks. As I was contemplating how my toes were nice and toasty in my husband's socks, I realized that too many of my own socks are "cute" and not entirely satisfactory for keeping my tootsies warm. And when I have frozen feet, I simply cannot deal with life. The reason I was so equipped today to deal with Christmas shopping with Sam...warm feet. The reason I was able to cope with hostile shoppers....warm feet. It's true. I am not kidding. The secret to world peace may very well be in my husband's socks.

Damn. Of course, now we'll have to kill you.

I, too, wear my husband's sox for good luck, or something. It started with my first D&C - that's all I wore, his sox. He's of course welcome to borrow mine at any time, but I doubt he'd risk getting caught wearing ones with red hearts or butterflies on them. Like you, they're more for style than utility.

That's quite amazing. It makes complete sense too...your new road to a million bucks: stylish, warm socks for chicks!

I love warm socks... Although I hate it when warm socks don't fit into my shoes very well resulting in squished feet.

You are SO right! Warm toes make ALL the difference some days. I really need to get a new pair of warm cushiony socks. Have you tried those ones that are all the rage this year? The extra fuzzy cozy socks? VERY nice.
