Mundane Monday – Super Socks

These socks have super powers.socks

I know, they look like your run of the mill, slightly dirty SmartWool socks.

They are.

The little hearts have nothing to do with their super powers, either. Though, they have kept them in my possession and off someone else’s stinky feet more than once. Which is pretty great but hardly worthy of super power status.

No, you can’t tell it by looking at them, but these socks exacerbate the effects of gravity on the wearer.

Super socks.

I have a fading bruise to prove that they should not be worn while attempting to move quickly.

I have lingering toe pain from proving that they are unsafe to wear while standing still.

And I have a suggestion from my husband that I no longer wear socks unless I’m sitting down and putting my boots on.

He thinks it’s because I don’t have the coordination to be a sock wearing, functioning human being, but I’m telling you.

It’s the super socks.

Linking up with PhoTrablogger’s Mundane Monday challenge again. Because if dirty socks (even ones with super powers) aren’t mundane I don’t know what is!

    Super socks are the best socks, even if they cause some chaos on their rise to the top…. 😉

  3. I have a shirt (henley pullover) with similar super powers. Twice it has flung me against the wall as I tried to put it on,and it once dumped a beer on me.

    Ms. J and I each have many pairs of Smartwool socks. After they go through the laundry, we can never tell which sock belongs to who.

      Get out the embroidery floss! I’m not even a tiny smidge of an expert with sewing and my little hearts have stayed on for a few years and saved my socks many times! I highly recommend it! 🙂

    I’ve heard that non-carpeted floors have a distinct aversion to socks of all kinds, but especially woolen ones. Personally I think they’re allergic to the lanolin. 😉

    The contrasting background and the little red marks and the many lines on the socks make it an interesting entry for MMC.

  7. Great photo. I like the light and the texture.
