I never put away all of these socks, there's just something so final about putting away all the socks. When I close the drawer after putting away the clothes, its like saying "remain here for awhile, for I do not plan to wear you again for some time".
But putting away all of the socks is like saying "stay here, I'm not going anywhere". What if something pops up though? It gets cold, a friend calls with exciting plans and I must say, "No sorry, I just put away all of my socks"
Whats the point in putting them all away if I just go right back and take some out? Might as well leave a pair or two by the shoes, at the ready.
Plus whenever I put away all the socks I find the stragglers, the lone socks, the swiss socks, the worn out ones and then I have to make difficult decisions. Weighing the severity of the tears against how uncomfortable they'll be. Designating indoor only socks and how many more wears a sock can receive before, garbage. And every time I put on a sock like this I shed a tear because socks don't receive burials. Socks are easily replaced. It's just not worth the trouble to put away all these socks.
