Socks

As I get older, I'm finding it to be more difficult to put on socks.  This has nothing to do with my lack of flexibility these days--I've figured out how to get around THAT hurdle.  No, my problem begins AFTER I get the sock on my foot.  My socks go on crooked and it takes me at least ten minutes of pulling, stretching, and adjusting to get them comfortable on my feet.  It would be better if the socks went on so twisted that the heel was on the top of the foot, but noooooooo, my socks are always SLIGHTLY twisted--just enough that they don't feel RIGHT.  You can't SEE there is a problem, but the socks just don't feel comfortable--and I can't handle them not fitting properly.  Of all of the problems I imagined facing when I got old(er), improperly fitting socks was NOT one of them..;)

I'm really beginning to think it has to be 'operator error.' I wonder if they give classes on how to put on socks? :D
