I started sorting out my closet this evening. I have more than 40 pairs of Korean socks. This means I can wear a different pattern every single day for a month and still not have to do laundry.
Socks (and shoes) are a bad gift in Korea. In Buddhism, the feet are the lowest part of the body. But everyone knows I adore socks. So I was given a bunch of socks on our last trip.
In addition to having 40 pairs of socks in use, I have another 20 waiting to be used.
Hmm. Maybe I need to wear holes in some of these 40 pairs before opening up the next 20…
