In an email from my little brother Jake...

On a side note, I was thinking about designing socks that are connected with a string so that you won't lose one. I will market them as "Socks for the man who loves mittens" What do you think?
(That's Jake, sitting on my lap in the wagon. He's bigger now. The other two are Nick and Katie.)

With socks like that, you'd either have to shuffle around like an old man or trip over them at least a dozen times a day.

But then again... I know where socks go. Weston used to know a guy that did washing machine repair who said that socks have a tendency to float to the top of a given load. In most top-load washers, they'll get stuck under the lip so that you'll never end up finding them. They just end up rotting away in there.

They also apparently can get stuck under the agitator, because I found a few of josue and ricard's stuck half under there when taking a load out. I was glad to have seen it with my own eyes because it gave me a valid case when saying I had no part in losing anyone's socks. I just wash them, and the machine truly does eat them.

Oh, and about the string idea, it's an interesting one. Jesse is totally right though about the outcome. That is unless you tell Jake that the string will have to come in special sizes so it can go up one pant leg and down the other without having any extra slack to trip on. I only want 2% of profits for that idea. :)

I like the idea of electric socks.

Wow, does your younger you ever look like your son. Yup, you definitely made him, eh?

I know! Sometimes when I see pictures of myself when I was little, they look like pictures of Max wearing a wig. They don't even look like me anymore.

You should make him grow his hair out to your length as he gets older. Just, you know, for fun.
