Exactly. It's a very difficult task.
not really, since i usually have no more than four or five pair in the wash at once.

sometimes in the summer, i will change socks because my feet sweat so bad and putting on a dry pair of socks does wonders in how your feet feel.

i sort and pair my socks when they washed. try and pair them up by age as best as possible. the older the sock, usually the thinner it is compared to newer one.

I just put them together, hey my boots are covering them anyway

i wear the plain white tube socks year round. i have a couple of pair of black dress socks in case i need them for a some sort of formal occasion like a wedding or a funeral where i might need to wear a suit.

even that's rare for me. many times unless there is a particular reason for me to wear a suit, i usually wear black jeans, white dress shirt with a tie and a black western cut suit coat with black boots. no one knows i'm wearing white socks.

Me too. All my socks except for one pair are white tube socks, so it's easy to deal with folding them and putting them away.
The one pair that is different are the black socks I wore to my funeral - er - wedding, and would probably crumble to dust if I tried to wear them.

Socks? We DON"T need No Smelly socks!!!...I have too many pairs. I have to wear "diabetic" socks from Dr. S...they come 2 in a pack for $8. No binding. I have a few Prs of Black, brown & Blue for dress,..but the rest are white, and either at "Calf length" or Knee Length...
When they get raggy looking I just chuck em...no "darning" needed either...

Isn't fat free half and half just another name for skim milk?

Why does the touch screen on my tablet only work when I touch it with my fingers but not if I try to use a pencil eraser?

I don't really understand how or why... But touch screens are designed to only respond to certain things like skin or a stylus...

Edit: maybe it's because the pencil doesn't conduct electricity?

Yep. But if I accidentally touch the wrong spot on the screen with ANYTHING, it always works.

Weird how that works, isn't it?
