This Post Will Knock Your Socks Off!

I have a problem. A serious problem. I mean, it's one thing to be a passionate Trekkie, or to know every word to Hamilton. But when you're spending hundreds of dollars on footwear, when you own over 400 pairs of socks, when you start considering how you're going to rearrange your bedroom so you a can find more storage for your socks? Those are signs that you've got a problem.

So step into my world for a moment, check out my collection, and see what delighteth my sole. (Get it? I said sole instead of soul. Get it?!)

Marvel
This is by far my largest collection.
It's fitting though, since the MCU is by far the best thing to happen to movies in recent history!
How awesome is Groot!? And Rocket! 
Spiderman. Deadpool. Tacos. Perfection.
How about that Eye of Agamotto, though!

DC Comics
If you really want to screw with a timeline, call on Flash.
Sigh, DC Comics. You'll never be Marvel.
But at least you've got Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman!
My family all wore my Batman socks when we went to see The Lego Batman Movie. It's what we do...
  
Star Wars
When you wear Star Wars socks, you feel like you're traveling on air. That's because you're a Skywalker! 😂

Whenever my kids' school has a Star Wars theme day (which seems to happen, like, three times a year now?), my kids fight over these two pairs of socks. 

Harry Potter
Yes, I have both Gryffindor socks and Slytherin socks.
I'm actually a Ravenclaw, but I identify as a Slytherin.
(At least I'm not a Hufflepuff!)
Aren't these the coolest socks? And yes, I have socks with ties on them, AND a tie with socks on it.
And yes, you may bow down to me now.

Disney
When I went to Disney World a few years ago, I made sure to wear a different pair of socks each day at the park. Sometimes more than one pair. Because I'm just that cool.
"What's this? What's this? There's color everywhere!"

Movies
Among my favorites here: E.T. (randomly given to me by a student), Ghostbusters (because slime), and Fight Club (because yay pink socks!) And did you notice that the Die Hard socks have non-slip "glass" pieces in the foot? Too cool.  

Television
Yes, they're in the order they premiered on TV.
And yes, my bestest buddy and I both own matching Golden Girls socks!
Still crying about Glenn...
I find it oddly appropriate that I have exactly six pairs of Friends socks.
And considering these were socks from my dearest friend, it's very fitting!

Cartoons
I think SpongeBob SquarePants has some of the best mix of highbrow and lowbrow humor out there. Besides Simpsons, of course!
And I especially love my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles socks because I was wearing them in an epic picture when I bought a car.
These are some of the cartoons that are appropriate for children: Transformers, Pokemon, Rugrats, CatDog... (Notice how Toothless has a mechanical tail fin!)
...and some cartoons that are maybe not so appropriate for children: Archer, South Park, Rick and Morty. Indeed, show me what you got!
Hanna-Barbera cartoons
Warner Bros. (How awesome is Space Jam?!)

Video Games
I wasn't a fan of the Sonic movie, but I sure love playing Sonic games!
I wear as many of these socks as I can on March 10. Why? Because MAR10 is MARIO day!
And My Personal Favorite...
Yes, that's me. And yes, my sister is a way cooler gift giver than your sister.

Okay, so there you have it. And I'm not ashamed to say that this is just a fraction of my sock collection! (Okay, yes, I'm kind of ashamed to say it...)
