Default Cool suprise from the wife

So, since we got the new car, the wife had to keep it yesterday and run errands ( go shopping )
Anyways, I talked to her from work and she said she got me a surprise.
She picked me up and my daughter handed me...
Anew pack of Big Foot socks. Fits shoes sizes 12 - 16. ( I wear a 14)
Gotta love new socks. Can't be in a bad mood when you wear new socks.
My dream is to one day get 365 new pairs of socks and wear a brand new pair each day for a whole year.
Got a new pair on right now.

I usually buy my socks in a pack of six pairs, for somewhere around $6.95. That would be a little over a buck a day to wear a new pair every day, heck, some people spend more then that a day on coffe..........hmmmm
