Marital Sock Fetish, Exposed*

So, this happened:

Me: Here, these socks don’t match.

Ed, The Husband: Okay, give ’em to me.

Me: Wait. What are you doing?

Ed: …Rolling my socks.

Me: But they don’t match.

Ed (looks at mismatched socks, looks at Me): So?

Me: So, you can’t wear mismatched socks!

Ed (looks at mismatched socks, looks at Me): Why not?

Me: Because you can’t!

Ed: But I do all the time. Lots of my socks don’t match.

Me: But doesn’t that drive you crazy?!

Ed (pauses): No. They’re in my boots.

Me: How can that not drive you crazy? Don’t you feel that they’re mismatched?

Ed: Um. No.

Me (triumphantly): But you know it!

Ed: For maybe 15 minutes. But then I forget about it.

Me: How can you forget about it?

Ed (shrugs): They’re in my boots.

Me: But there are mismatched socks in your boots!

Ed (tilts head): I’m not looking at them.

Me: There is something wrong with you.

Ed (grins): There’s something wrong with your mom.

Me: There’s something wrong with your face.

Ed: That’s not very nice.

Me: And you wear mismatched socks!

We have a very mature relationship.

*Okay, so not really. I was just trying to come up with a funny post title and have totally hoodwinked you into thinking I was being kinky. Mea culpa.

Fling this post into the ether of internetted winds, that it might implant itself in a bazillion other consciousnesses and hasten the onset of my world dominion. ...Wait -- did I say that out loud?Buffer this page

    L. O. L.
    I knew when i saw the pic, this would be about Ed’s mismatchy socks! How funny! You guys crack me up!
    But really, how does it NOT drive him mad?!

  2. Ed is, indeed, a mystery of the universe. 🙂

    I think I could wear mismatched socks if I did it on purpose (and in that case they would probably have to color-coordinate), but never haphazardly like that. And anyway, I’ve never thought about trying to go out with mismatched socks.

    Hm, I seem to remember lots of mismatched sock days back at OC…they’re less frequent now, but if they’re roughly the same size and texture and I’m wearing boots, I don’t care, either. 🙂

    • Patricia, you’re right — I sit somewhat corrected. ; ) But if I ever wear mismatched socks, it’ll be a mismatch in color only. The type of sock has to be the same, and the mismatch must be intentional with the goal of showing them off to others. If it’s a completely different style of sock, my feet feel unbalanced! LOL
