I just took off my last pair of never-worn-before socks. I won’t get that feeling of putting on a completely new, unstretched sock again until I buy another pair. I don’t need another pair- I got a set of six for my birthday.

For the foreseeable future I will only be wearing socks that have been inside a shoe, stretched over heels, twisted around ankles, and soaked up sweat.

Who knew I would find a fresh new pair of socks to be one of the pleasures of life?
