May 9th is Lost Sock Memorial Day
you're looking for something to do today then remember the socks that
are no longer with us because it's Lost Sock Memorial Day!
may never seen them again but you'll always have mismatched pairs to
fall back on. Let's get right into celebrating Lost Sock
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because we've all lost socks at one
another and spent a lot of time looking for the missing sock, so that
we can have a matching pair. We'll sit and wonder where it could have
gone or we end up giving up and then hiding the fact that our socks
don't match. But today is a day to remember those lost socks and then
move on. They served you well at least once and perhaps they'll return
to you but for now let your thoughts drift to other things.
the fact that the socks you do have are so far advanced that it really
shouldn't matter if they don't match. Could you imagine living in
Ancient Greece when they used matted animal hair to keep their feet
And you thought you've seen hairy feet! Or how about
living as a Roman where you'd have to wrap your feet in fabric or
leather? Or what about living back in 1000 AD whenever not everyone had
socks and you were considered wealthy if you actually did? Shoes must
have smelled horrible then! So you can see why we should move
today. We might not have matching pairs of socks and we may never know
where that other sock went... but we still have socks! So slip on a
pair, matching or not, and say goodbye to the lost sock worries.
So how can you celebrate today? Well, you can start by
sitting down and remembering the last time you lost a sock. How did it
make you feel? Was it one of your favorite socks? Do you still have the
other sock? Think about all the times you've lost socks, where you
thought they went and then call back the search party. It's time to
move on and you have a few choices. You could simply get rid
the mismatched socks if you want. If you have a bunch of socks that
don't match others at all then you can toss them in the trash, donate
them to some place that loves single socks or use them as something
else. Slip your hand inside it and use it to dust your house if you
want, sew them together into a lost sock quilt or store your marbles
inside them so that you don't lose them too.
Or you could just
rock out with mismatched socks for a while. If you're wearing pants,
who's going to be able to tell anyway? And if people do notice then
just tell them that matching socks are so last year. Who knows, you
might start a new trend that could revolutionize the art of sock
wearing forever. And the last option is to just go out and
some new socks today. You can buy the exact kind of socks as the ones
you lost or you can get some completely different socks. In fact, if I
were you, I'd be looking for some of the most creative looking socks
out there. It'll be easy to move on from your lost socks if you have a
new pair of socks that are ten times as amazing as your old ones.
So enjoy your day and hey, nice socks!
