Best of 2013


Yes, it’s a little late for a “Best of 2013″ post, but I’m a little slow—so it’s all good.


Here at My Odd Sock, a lot happened in 2013.

At least that’s what my parole officer tells me.

So I thought we could take a look back at what some (none really) may consider to be the best of My Odd Sock.

And “Warning:  Graphic Violence” wasn’t a disclaimer for a movie—but some common warning labels found around the home.
