4th folder, 4th pic



I have been tagged by the Funaholics' leader to post the 4th picture from my 4th folder in "my pictures" folder. The funny/ironic thing is....this pic was taken to do a post for the blog and then I forgot all about it!!!

The stories:
Airport socks: Last year when I went out to Mesa to visit Laura, I wore crocs to the airport. I forgot that I'd have to take off my shoes at security and I HATE the idea of walking on the airport floor without socks on. Luckily the gift shop outside of security had socks...the soft, fuzzy anklet kind, 1 pair for $6, 2 pair for $10. So of course, being the bargain hunter that I am, I bought 2 pair and sent Craig home with the 2nd pair. Laura then dubbed them "airport socks" in her efforts to make fun of my idiosyncrasies. (FYI--I mailed her the 2nd pair and 6 months later I got a phone when she finally tried them on and discovered just how awesome "airport socks" are!)

Craig's trip gift: Whenever Craig goes out of town for work, he always brings me something. He brought me a 3-pack of "airport socks" rolled up into a container. When I unrolled them, I about fell over laughing! The white sock is one of my normal every day socks. The blue sock above is one of them--and should have been labeled that they were intended for NBA players only.

I will have to look for airport socks in my travels this weekend.
I always have socks in my car or purse, when I have the big one. My feet are always cold!

I wear air port socks all the time - even to bed if my feet are cold as I can't get to sleep until my feet are warm. Some brands do tend to be a lot bigger than others. Gary gave me two pr for Xmas. I opened my airport sock drawer and showed him - 18 pr in every color there is told him I really did not need another pr. Traded them for another pr of gloves. Mom

LOVE IT! I just went through airport security, and although I had no issue with my socks, my pants were falling down without my belt and I was tripping over the hems without my boots on!
