Stubbornness Kills the Cat Again

Eight-year-old Rachelskirts hated folding socks. She hated helping with laundry in general (or with any chores, for that matter), but sock-folding was one of her least favorite aspects of the job.

Twenty-three-year-old Rachelskirts no longer folds her socks in neat little pairs. No, she throws her socks haphazardly in a drawer, ignoring her obsessive-compulsive tendencies in some rebellious attempt to avenge her childhood. Unfortunately, it took her almost ten minutes to find a matching pair of socks tonight (in the dark, albeit), and she could hear her mother cackling the entire time. "I told you so, I told you so!"

But never fear, my pretties. The war against folding socks (or sock monkeys!) shall continue, even if it means my feet freeze off this winter. I am just that dedicated.

Partial solution (you'll partially hate me for this): 365 pairs of socks (366 if you believe in the whole leap year thing) and just fold the darker-part-of-the-year socks. That's what free time is for. That way, when it's dark out and you're too lazy to turn on a light, you just need to reach into your sock drawer and extract a larger something. That way, you know you've got a matching pair without having to exert too much energy and you still get to do the morning matching thing in the lighter part of the year.

I like the 365/366 pair of socks idea. There is nothing better than a brand new pair of white cotton socks (I only wear white socks, that way I don't have to match).

I fold my sock pairs in half and then roll them up in little balls and throw them in a basket. It pleases me to do it thus.

I haaaated folding socks because I could never get it done the way my mother wanted them done. So now I just shove them into my dresser and yank out any two socks when I need them. I don't care of they match or not.

Of course, is you only bought solid white cotton socks, this would never become an issue, as each sock would match.

The heck? How can folding socks be such a pain? grabfolddone. Or do you sock-haters have dozens of pairs of socks? Or do you just hate folding under pressure?

Sorry, I had to.
