It’s the oddest thing… all of my socks, or several pairs at least, have all lost structural integrity — at the same time. Seems like every pair I’ve tried on this week — which were fine last week — have immediately drooped down around my ankles. Go fig.

Planned obsolescence. The elastic has a predetermined lifespan.

That just happened with all 4 pairs of my Old Navy jeans. Knees and back pockets wore out, all in about a 2-3 month span. Now I have a new favorite jean to replace it, Wrangler.

See, I was gonna say underpants. The elastic just mutters “Screw it, I’m outta here” usually at the most inconvenient time, like when I’m out doing something. Then I look like I have cooties cuz I’m hitching up my undies so’s they don’t look baggy. Is there anyone out there that can invent sooper-dooper elastic? 🙂
