The Sunday Ads

The Sunday Ads

    The Sunday ads. Some say it’s the only reason to get a Sunday paper. Everything you need (or could ever want) is on sale.   Here at My Odd Sock, I like to scour the ads for anything you wouldn’t want—and this week’s ads do not disappoint. Let’s get on with the silliness….. …

Hit The Shower

Hit The Shower

    There’s nothing new about taking a shower. Most of us go through this routine process nearly every day. Yet lately I have felt strange in the shower. A closed-in feeling of claustrophobia. Between walls of fiberglass & a nylon curtain, I found my space was shrinking.  And I was determined to discover why. …

How Soft Have We Become?

How Soft Have We Become?

    “How soft have we become?” I ask myself examining the toilet paper just purchased from the store. We seem obsessed with terms like soft, plush, cushiony, comfy & delicate when it comes to our backside. Like we’ve been using asbestos all these years & we want to change it up. It is amazing …

I Can’t Believe It’s Not A Planet

I Can’t Believe It’s Not A Planet

  All my years in school (including the repeated years), we learned of the nine planets in our solar system:  Mercury, Venus (where women are from), Earth, Mars (where men are from), Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus (the fav of immature males), Neptune and Pluto.   All was well & good as the stars aligned in perfect …

Notes On Totes

Notes On Totes

        Promotional giveaway items, knicknacks, doodads, whatnots, thingamajigs. The items have changed through the years. Kind of like a geologic time scale of gimcrack whatchamacallits.   Anything with enough room to cram a company logo.   Pencils.  Pens.  Matches.  Ashtrays.  Jar openers.  Umbrellas.  Chip clips.  Note pads.  Pill boxes.       …

Driving For Christmas

Driving For Christmas

  It truly IS a special time of year. The nip in the air.  The bustle of busy people. And the excitement of a certain day to come.   Yes, Hyundai Holidays are here. Cars shined bright. Salesmen in sweaters way too tight.         The wreaths, ribbons & lights so fond… can …
