Deus Ex Machina is not gentle with his socks. Or perhaps the socks he has been receiving - mostly as gifts - are socks that need less "wear-and-tear." He says he has toenails of steel.
Whatever the reason, it seemed that more of his socks had holes than didn't. The other day, I set to work mending the holes in the toes.
And, of course, after I finished the half dozen socks I mended, I was folding clothes, and I found another dozen or so that will need to be mended. I guess, it's good to take it in small batches, and hopefully, the socks I fixed will last long enough for me to fix the next ones.
