    Who Really Cares

    I stumbled out of bed this morning and sleepily dressed myself but realized I didn't have socks on. I fumbled through things, found one (yeah me) and continued my hunt. hhmmm where the heck is the matching one? They are the cute recycle ones that MnM sent me and now I'm missing...

    Who Says They Have To Match

    I started off by wearing black and white socks but I got bored with them. Now I wear striped, argyle, red, blue, orange, and have just started wearing the first 2 I pull out of the draw. Right now I am wearing a red one with a blue checkered one!

    Kindred Spirits

    I'm so glad there are others like me!!  I am a sock fiend.  And none of these plain white socks either.  I don't care if they match or not, I'm wearing 'em.

    Why have matching socks?

    I must have over 5 different styles of white socks and no one is the wiser if I mismatch them.

    What Is Going On At Themismatchedsock.com?

    i wear them everyday... but, if they're mis-matched, can I really call them "them"... aren't they something different by definition? sounds like www.themismatchedsock.com is about to celebrate something we all can get behind... mis-matched socks!!!an affliction or a gift...

    First of all I just luv socks period!!      I have a drawer full of them. I wear mismatched socks when I can't find matched ones.  The washer and dryer are like the twilight zone for socks.  I have a bag full of mismatched onsies.

    Socks Should Be Free

    I don't know when it started, but I've always loved socks. They can describe any mood, happy, depresed, boring, cheerful, and can bring a smile to your face. My sister has a scok organizer and rolls up pairs together and put them in their little slots. I tell her that she is...

    It's True, I Do.

    I would say it's because I'm quirky, funny, odd and exciting.. truth is, I can never find a pair. it's a situation of necessity.

    Age is a thief. It can steal the youth from anyone. The once young that could dance and jump; lay there, in wheelchairs; legs unable to move to the rhythm of music. The once young that could open the toughest of jars; now can hardly pick up a spoon. The once young that did what...

    I love it! I don't know

    why exactly, it makes me feel unique cause when I'm out, I'm the only one who knows my socks don't match. My mom absolutely hates it because whenever she does the laundry, she thinks she misplaced the matching pairs, so she spends hours looking for them till I remind her I wear...

    Because honestly, who has time

    for searching the other sock in the same colour, when you have like ten different socks to choose from. Seriously people, life's to short to waste time matching your socks.

    Don't Go to Airports

    Never go to an airport wearing two different socks. Walking through the security thing without shoes on for some reason makes the staff want to talk about your feet. This happened to me a few day ago where the first lady was yelling at me because I accidentally left my bording...

    13 Years

    I not worn matching socks for 13 years (with a few dress sock exceptions). I remember back in grade school my friend was wearing mismatching socks and I decided that it was just a much better way to live life. I am so immune to my mismatched socks so I get confused when people...

    And Shoes

    I also have recently found myself wearing mismatched trainers. I wonder if I wear a pink sock on my left foot and a pink trainer on my right foot with green sock and green trainer for the other way around, it would kind of look less strange. But who knows, I may try it tomorrow...

    Look Professional Not Trendy

    Today I was ironing freshly washed socks to

    quickly evaporate the moisture. My grape socks. Socks with a pattern that looked like a bunch of purple grapes. Someone had set the iron to a ridiculously high temperature and because I was in a hurry to wear my sick socks, I didn't check the setting T_T The iron melted...

    Because I Am Lazy

    This all stems from being lazy about laundry, and another experience I am a part of, the "I do the laundry but fail to remove it from the dryer and put it away" group. So yup, the clean laundry stays in the dryer, and I am usually late and grumpy in the morning, and the...

    They Kinda Match Sometimes

    I used to wear matched socks, but I love decorative socks and it's so easy to lose a sock.  I finally realized that it doesn't matter if my socks match.  Hardly anyone sees them and if they do it's a great conversation starter.  I normally try to get my socks to at...

    Monsters Are Hiding In My Dryer.

    Its a fact. There are tiny monsters living in my dryer.  These bastards are stealing my socks.  I don't know exactly what they're doing with them.  Perhaps they are having sack races with them.  Perhaps they're filling them with old coffee grounds they collect...

    Because I Only Have About Three Pair

    and they are all old. Most don't have mates but are close enough to be able to be worn as a pair. I wear sox maybe 2 or 3 times a year if that. All of my sox are currently back home. I don't have any sox, nylons, or other such nonsense with me here. :)

    My Socks Aren't Even Cute Though

    The socks i wear are different because i don't fold them or anything, i just kinda through them in this big basket and grab different ones every time i go to get socks. I don't even own any cute socks with lots of cute designs.
