Sunday Musings #128

I walk around like everything is fine, but deep down, inside my shoe, my sock is falling off.

I like how this starts off as though it’s going to be some serious psychological discussion.

As if!

Come on guys, this is me on a Sunday!

Still, it is the most annoying thing to be walking Little Monkey and find that my sock is disappearing inside my shoe. I ignore it for a while, till it gets to the point where it is scrunched up under my instep uncomfortably.

Then I have to stop; *check very carefully up and down the area for any sign of an approaching dog; take my shoe off and retrieve the errant sock.

I have one pair of socks that is particularly bad, but I keep forgetting, because they are cotton and comfy; if I’m not walking too much in them!


*Why do I have to check so carefully for dogs? LM freaks out if she sees other dogs and I don’t fancy being caught off balance and pulled full length on the grass verge – again!

    If I remember them right, two old sayings cover this situation:
    “If the sock fits, wear it (until it doesn’t).”
    “A sock in the shoe is worth two in the tush.”

    On the other foot — I mean, on the other HAND — maybe I don’t remember them exactly right.

    I have a pair of boots that consistently pull my socks down…I find myself doing that weird sideways hunch over trying to insert a finger down my boot to hook it back up..glad I am not alone! πŸ˜ΈπŸ’•xx

    Haha, and I thought I was the only one with those kinds of socks that have a mind of their own and try to get away. πŸ™‚

    I remember that post when you were on the grass verge because LM saw another dog. As for the loose sock..LOL! I know the feeling. I have a pair too that is loose but I refuse to chuck it as it is easy to wear and removeπŸ˜ƒ but yes if I walk far it gets scrungy!!

    I would like to know how, when I am out walking with Ray at a brisk pace, and in shoes that fit snugly …. a tiny stone can be kicked up into the air; develop a trajectory that moves it forward; can somehow get into a shoe, and position itself for maximum discomfort. I did physics at school and, if it only happened rarely, I could explain as a “freaky” situation …. but it happens often!

      I know! I have the same problem with sharp thorns that stab my feet inside my shoes. Like you, I’d like to know how they can get in there!
