feet

today's random fact about me: my feet get cold at night, and i usually wear socks to bed. every six nights or so, i wake in a panic with incredibly overheated feet and have to rip my socks off. however, what usually happens is that one of my two socks will come off of its own accord during the night and i will wake wearing one. instead of locating the stray sock under the covers and putting it back on (or conversely, taking the remaining sock off), i just wear the single sock as i stumble downstairs to make my 5:30am coffee, figuring that at least one foot will remain warm. i worry that this starts my day off in a dangerously unbalanced manner, but i am too tired to do anything about it.

My feet _always_ become too hot at night, and I shrug my socks off under the covers. When we change the sheets, we always find three or four pairs of socks down at the bottom.

I used to sleep pantless until I figured out a way to sleep without socks on...
Now I sleep in long pj pants and tuck my feet into them at the beginning of the night when they're cold.

See? I'm a genius.

This is very interesting, not because of the socks, but because of the 5:30 coffee in the morning. I do not share the socks experience with you, but I do share the coffee experienced.

i should add that i only have my 5:30am coffee on school days - the weekends find me still in bed much, much later than that!
