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.
