Socks Redux

This has nothing to do with sock puppets. It's almost time to do laundry here again so, in the spirit of procrastination that Interesting by Association embodies, I just opened a new package of socks instead. I noticed they now come in a resealable bag. Why on Earth would I want to reseal my new socks? Maybe it's so they don't lose that new-sock smell? Or maybe I'm supposed to put the soiled socks back in the bag for proper disposal at a toxic waste dump? Or maybe... well, I just plain don't know what purpose it could serve.

Where in hell did you find resealable socks? I have one word for this: Gaaahahahahaahah!

Perhaps you were headed to the golf course, and just needed ONE pair of socks, but all they had was this 6pack in a resealable bag. Are you still with me? Okay. Then let's say you throw the remainder of the socks in your trunk while you're out.

During the meantime...THE PARKING LOT FLOODS FROM A FREAK STORM ENCOMPASSING ONLY THE PERIMETER OF THE LOT...and your car is filled with water.

Wouldn't it be comforting to know you could come back and still put on fresh, dry socks?

See, don't be so quick to judge.

Makes you wonder the next time you go to Wal-Mart and see a package of socks on clearance, missing a pair....
