In Thing Two's Laundry Basket

I promise he has actual shoes.
With actual soles.
I won't even ask you to imagine the smell.
That's it.
Thing One and I are outta here.
For two blissful days.

This is the most beautiful picture of dirty socks I have ever seen. Very nice.
Sorry about the holes.

have a great time away! and they must be over 35 to stop doing that to socks and then if they regress for a day it will still happen!
Grins and hugs

Trust me. They never outgrow this. Ever. Mine is 32 and when he comes home to visit he is outside in his socks shooting hoops. Have a good time away.

Well...what can I say! My husband still has socks like this!
NSLO..well, if she looks at a sock it is dirty!! Can't wait for that one to have to do her own laundry.
Have fun on the over night!

My son does this too. I don't miss his ugly socks.

The only thing worse than filthy white socks is the never-ending basket of mis-matched, un-matched and otherwise mateless socks. I must have a kajillion of them. I hate sorting and matching socks. I'd rather throw them away and buy new ones, which is also what I'd do with the pair you've shown here.

Enjoy your time away.

That is absolutely hysterical. Where did he go. I think it's safe to say those can go in the trash.

RiverPoet said...

Ew, ew, ewwwwww...

All I have to say is that when my son's socks started getting ugly and his tidy whities had skid marks, I showed him how to use the W/D. I told him that no mother should have to deal with that! :-)

Peace - D

Country Girl said...

Shameful.

Have an excellent time and let us know how it all went!

Flea said...

ENJOY. :)

I wind up throwing away one sock at a time as I find holes, then not having any pairs left. Yay for you finding a holey pair!

kim-d said...

It appears that Thing Two has had to walk many, many miles. And probably all uphill. :)

I think it's a VERY good thing you and Thing One got OUTTA DODGE...

My Metabolic Rate is Stuck said...

At least they were a matcing pair!
GREAT Picture....it should be entered somewhere!!~

asthmagirl said...

Ick, now I know why I have girls! Why do they wear them when they have holes?

I hope you and thing one have a lovely time!

Debbie said...

I remember picking David up at daycare when he was a baby and accidently got some other child's socks. I swore MY son's socks would NEVER look like that...all grey and dingy. Ha!! Right...

I was SO wrong! David has quite a few pairs just like this! Heck, there on his feet...let him worry about it LOL!

Helena said...

My 45 year old teenager has socks like this, and you're quite right- the smell is indescribable!

Stacey Huston said...

LOL that really looks familiar and I don't need to imagine the smell. I am ALWAYS lecturing my boys about hygene.. lol..

Magpie said...
