62. Socks

But a hospital has rules, rules made up by a horrible sock company! They try to hide that. They imply that it is safety. Poppycock and rot.

You can get around this one.  It’s okay to wear socks and shoes from home.  I did that exclusively on my last week’s stay at the Overlake inn.

But a hospital has rules, rules made up by a horrible sock company!  They try to hide that.  They imply that it is safety.  Poppycock and rot.

The socks have little nubs all over them.  They are made of a material that has no connection to nature, and might be recycled plastic milk jugs, which I could actually get behind.  Even the colors are barely meeting a spectrum, yellow, gray?  Not really yellow.  Not committed to gray.

The atrocities do cover your feet.  There is a light barrier against the cold.  And, I did not slip or fall.  Dilemma averted.  I went through three pair while I was there, forever in the landfill.  Could there be a limited supply?  If so, I have diminished the possibility of sock torture for future generations.
