SammySocks Etc. Blog - Comments and Observations from Someone Who Is a Retired Educator and Sammy’s Dad

            There is a famous movie that plays around Christmas about what it would be like if one of its characters had never been born. It has a happy ending. It is really a very good movie.

            Well, what would the world be like if there were no socks? Here are a few possibilities.

            + Puppets would take a hit – no sock puppets.

            + Band-Aid sales would skyrocket (for all of the blisters on feet with no socks).

            + All this extra time would be available because there would be no socks to fold or ball up or whatever.

            + Time would not be lost looking for that missing sock from the dryer.

            + Dressers would be smaller. There would be no need for a sock drawer.

            + There would be no Tom Cruise dance scene in Risky Business. His feet would stick to the floor.

            + Feet will be forever cold at night.

            + Couples will break up more often as a result of the cold feet at night.

            + Fireplace mantles will be overrun at Christmas because there are not stockings (socks) to stuff.

            + Older men’s fashion will change forever – nothing to wear with sandals.

            + People will have nothing to darn.

            + We will have to put rice in old shoes to make a cheap heating pad. Wont’ be the same.

            + There will be no phrase – “Put a sock in it!”

            + School kids will have to use their sleeves to erase their markerboards.

            But wait, there are socks! And you can find a great selection of socks at SammySocks Etc. Please go to our website (www.sammysocksetc.com) and take a look at our sock selection.
