One of these things is not like the other...

The socks on the left were given to me by my daughter for my xth birthday. (A lady never reveals her age, so there.) The socks on the right were given to me by Niles at the same time. When I opened the packages, everyone in the room, including Carole and Niles, thought they were the same pair. They are nice, sturdy socks. The pair on the right had a hole develop at that toe seam and were one of the pairs I fixed way back in May.

For almost 3 years, I've thought these were the same pattern. Today, as I was balling my socks for the drawer, I happened to pick up this combination and actually look at them. If I disregard the wear on the left pair, it dawned on me. The cats on the right pair have pink eyes. Oh good heavens. I never noticed that before.

So this begs the question, how many times did I wear this particular combination totally oblivious to the fact these were two different patterns?

There's an old joke...Mom looks at her grade school child heading off to school. "Honey? Do you know you're wearing a blue sock and a black sock?" Her son looks at his feet and then at his mother. "That's funny. I have another pair just like these in the drawer."
