Sex gets better with age. Sox don’t.
I found a hole in another sock after walkies this morning. Sox don’t last as long as they used to. For as long as most folks can remember, I’ve worn white crew sox with work shoes or sneaks. I wear any kind of sox less now than when I was a kid or when I worked in someone else’s office. Even so, they wear faster. We just don’t make sox like we used to.
And who ever thought putting an “X” on the end of a word should make it a plural? There is no singular seck, after all.
