Counting Down #24

When I was about 7 or 8, my parents took us somewhere... I can't remember where. But it was a big 2 story house and the family had at least two little girls. We spent the night with them.

All of us girls were snuggled up in one bed. The girls' mother came in to tuck us in (I have NO IDEA where my parents are in this story.) I remember she grabbed each one of our feet when she was saying goodnight. She stopped at mine and said, "You wear socks to bed?" And I said yes. To which she replied, "But then you can't feel your toes wiggle around." So I told her to take them off.

I have not worn socks to bed since that day (Except when my feet are absolutely FREEZING). Every time I have got into bed with socks on, I hear that lady's voice, and then I want to feel my toes off they go!

Free your toes people....Let them Wiggle...Set them FREE!

Cold feet at night is the worst thing EVER but I can't stand wearing socks to bed either.
What's a girl to do?

i got to bed with them on but kick them off about ten minutes into my sleep. if i have cold feet, i just put them on brian because he is always warm. isn't that nice of me?

Kira likes to warm them on me too! Your post reminds me of what I think every time I see someone wearing those socks that are like foot gloves, with a hole for each toe. I say free the toes! Free the toes!
