You know how the road to hell is paved with good intentions and all that?
Well, I bought these socks.
Let me back up. I'm angry at all my socks.
I walk about 100 miles per week.
And for about 90 of those miles, my terrible ankle socks are slipping off my ankle and down underneath my heel in a big knot that makes me stabby. No matter what brand I've bought over the last few years, after a few washings, they all turn into the amazing disappearing sock. It's maddening.
The ones that don't slide go too high up on my ankle so that my weird tan lines are even weirder. What happened to good elastic/lycra/whatever that kept your sock on your foot? Probably the same thing that happened to cotton shoelaces that stayed tied and leaded gasoline.
I ordered some new socks on Amazon last week - Nike socks - and I received them and they looked great. They were all bound together with that little plastic stick thingy, so I just broke that sucker and threw them all in the washer without looking at them.
Then I tossed them in the dryer.
Then I realized my horrific mistake.
When I opened the dryer, I happily picked out Nike sock #1 with a pink swoosh. Then I reached for Nike sock #2.
It had a blue swoosh.
I HAD PURCHASED SIX PAIRS OF SOCKS DESIGNED TO GO THEIR MISMATCHED SOCK WAYS BY DESIGN.
WHYYYYYY? Why not just make them all the same color so that if I had two socks on I was good to go? Why must you complicate my already complicated laundry/sock mismatched life with this wrinkle? Why do you hate me, sock people?
Socks should be two by two, no matter what.
Like on the ark.

I made this card for both a VSN challenge and for the Touch Twin Color Challenge - I focused on the aqua, of course.
I love this sweet new stamp and the banners and matching framelit. I had SO much fun coloring this and adding a teeny bit of glitter.
So nice to play with things that match. That have a natural pair. Unlike my new socks.
Oh. PS - I really like the socks. But if you see someone with a pink swoosh and a blue swoosh, please just politely look away.
