I basically lose a pair of socks every time I’m caught in rain when I’m wearing sneakers. This was the case for yesterday even though I only got in the rain on my way to Japanese class when I left work. But it was enough that by the time I got home around 12:30 am the wet parts of my socks were discolored and generally gross. There were times in the past when I let them dry out, but at that point the smell was so overpoweringly terrible and crusted onto the sock that it was not worth keeping so I chucked them. When my feet get wet in rain storms I always picture bacteria in my shoes partying it up and having a great time. Pretty gross if you really think about it. I would’ve worn boots had I known the extent to which it might rain.
