Karma.....and socks

March 30th, 2006 at 04:43 pm

I am not sure if I believe in Karma...but it is the only reasonable explanation for my experiences with socks....Socks??? of all things, why socks??
To explain, let me start with a definition I found for Karma:

Karma is a sum of all that an individual has done, is currently doing and will do. The effects of those deeds and these deeds actively create present and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one's own life, and the pain in others.

Plainly spoken- cause and effect...what comes around, goes around... a past life, I must have spent alot of time at the market mixing up socks...putting the reds with the blacks, yellows with greens...because I can NEVER seem to find matching socks...

Or maybe in a past life I mistreated my washer and dryer ....and now they are gobbling up one of each pair to repay me...

Whatever the reason...all I know is that more days than not...I have mismatched socks on. I have a drawer just for socks and it is reasonably full...just not of any two alike...

Where the heck are all the matching socks??? Am I alone in this perplexing situation...or are there others seemingly guilty of past sins as I am???

I am ready to make a public plea and confess my wrongdoings...whatever they may be so that I can finally wear socks without worrying that my pants arent long enough to cover my pink and orange combination for the day....

    Too funny, but that happends to all of us. I solve this problem by only buying one brand, all the same color. I wear black socks only, my husband white socks only to work.

    i wash all my socks in a lingerie bag. i toss them in when i take them off at night. I never lose them but it took me a long time to learn this!

    I'm a one color sock person too..........boys socks even. They don't come very fancy in the first place!!! I don't seem to loose mine, but I get holes in the heels and then the pair would be shot. This way, I just buddy up 2 orphan socks and bingo.........another pair!

    A frugal can take the onesy socks and use them to protect the floor when moving furniture, or as dust rags. Or as toys for the dog.

    Wow, I get holes in the heels, too! And I always lose one sock of the pairs that I like. The socks I don't really like I can keep for years.
