The Sox of Truth

Never underestimate a thorough novelty footie inventory. My current total is 146 footies, a tad over half of which still have mates. Some of these date back to 2008. I remember every sock, where it came from (friend or purchase), time of year, stuff that was going on at the time. I still miss sox that I never got pix of.

My collection is your basic retail inventory from a variety of places like Walmart, Walgreens, Target, K-Mart, Bass Pro, Lady Foot Locker, J.C. Penney's, and even a grocery store and gas station somewhere. One of these days I'm going online and getting even way cooler sox. I've seen everything from Mr. T to Scrabble to Seth Rogen to Superman (with cape)- you name it, it's on sox. Animals of every kind, celebrities, games, fast food, TV shows and movies... If I'm going to blow a thousand dollars on something frivolous in my life, I want it to be on sox.

If I had been smart and started a real inventory ten years ago (who knows what the internet will bring), I could conceivably have the biggest novelty sock collection on pinterest right now. I have owned and worn more cool fun sox than anyone else I've ever met in real life, and I take them very seriously. But since I never inventoried back then, I'm not going to start now. I was just curious today how many novelty footies I actually have since I tell people all the time that I have over 75 pairs of sox. Today I found out that I actually have 73 if I were to pair them all up, so I'm exaggerating only a tiny little bit.

Do not despair, dog people. There are some for you, too.

Sorry, shark people- sold out.

Sox over Awesome, Medium-Rare

Srsly, I totally love this woman. I've been watching her since she sous chefed for Mario Batali in Kitchen Stadium.

At first I was a little perturbed to find out someone beat me to this hashtag.

But that person turned out to be this guy

and turns out he's got some pretty awesome sox. Click that to go to the hashtag feed so you can pop all his sox pix open.
