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.
