#628 Peeling your socks off under the sheets

Skip the shock.

People, we’ve chatted before about how bad your feet have it. Face it, they’ve been through a lot today so there’s no need to nail them with a blast of cold air before bed. Instead, just tuck them in tightly, tuck them in rightly, and peel off your socks using only your feet when you’re warm and comfy under the sheets.

Don’t worry — you can collect the sweaty sock mounds from the foot of your bed tomorrow.

Sweet dreams.

  1. That’s so true! Especially when I got cold and I want to warm-up my feet a little bit I always try to sleep in socks on. Sometimes I decide that it’s too hot out there and I peel them of without getting up. That relief is AWESOME!

    btw.: Thanks to PC Mag I found this blog! :>

  2. Oh my word I *love* this one. Every night. It’s so good in winter when I am chilly right when I get into bed but slowly get warm under the covers… then I get just a *teensy* bit too hot and the undercover sock-peel puts me at the absolute perfect temperature and I can drift off to sleep… awesome.

  3. Sometimes the most awesome part of these awesome things is finding out that other people love these same little awesome things!!! I didn’t know anyone else took such pleasure in taking their socks off in bed, and I always was a little embarrassed when I belted out a song while thinking “it’s like the song was written for me!” NO MORE – I will simply enjoy the awesomeness!!

  4. Yes! The sock peel is such a good thing; it ties with the big stretch before the husband takes up his side. Awesome.

  5. I have to agree that finding people agreeing of these awesome things is … AWESOME.

    While we’re on the feet subject, grabbing something with your feet because you’re either lazy or skilled is also awesome !

    1. Ya know, just cuz they can grip the sock and have a complete yank rather than the peel down and then skootch method that normal toes have.

  6. This is one of the best feelings ever, especially if you have soft flannel sheets.

    And yes, yes it is better with the crab-eyed toes.

  7. This is exactly what I do with my socks every night! I love your blog, wouldn’t miss an update! I say write the book! What feels scary and joyful at the same time has to turn out well. Jump in with both feet!


  8. As a kid, when my mom would make me bring my sheets to the laundry room at the end of the week, i’d *always* have 14 sock bundles at the end of the bed.

    I do now without even thinking. this is golden.

  9. I have actually developed a good system for this. You know how if you wear the socks you’ve been wearing all day to bed, they’re slightly damp, and then get cold because they’re damp? Well I generally put on a fresh pair before i go to bed, then kick them off in the night. and voila! in the morning, i have a pair of dry socks to put on right from the floor in the morning! the cycle is complete!

  10. I roll, then crab-claw, then quick flip them out of the bed so they’re not in my way while I sleep and I smile for I just accomplished an amazing feat!

  11. Toronto Maple Leafs have been my favourite. Everyone is raving about them. I anticipate winnipeg jets are able to keep it up as I heard their sales #’s are not doing so well in the future years.

  12. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  13. I cannot sleep with socks on at all, and usually they come off as soon as my shoes do. I used to sleep with socks on, back in the day, but then I’d wake up and they would be off my feet and I’d have to search for them. Most of the time they were under my pillow.
