I hated looking for matching socks. Every day, my job required me to remove shoes at nearly every doorstep, and matching my socks was a daily frustration.
Each day, I’d get my MLS home showing sheets ready, the electronic key card that opens lock-boxes, get dressed with minutes turning into seconds frantically starring at the time ticking away. All ready but just need to …find ….one matching sock.
One day, the socks came out of the pile and got their own basket. Matched or mismatched, they were only contending with their equals, and as wear and tear took a turn, there was no room for holy socks in my basket. Before you know it finding a pair was as simple as reaching into the basket.
