Have You Seen My Mate?

Hi, all you people out there in Blogland! Sara is busy watching the Office, so I have taken over her blog with an urgent message.

Single White Sock Looking for Mr. Right

I am Sara's sock. I'm not just any old sock, either. I am one half of a pair of Sara's favorite running socks. I am a Feetures Light Cushion Low-Cut. Lately, I've been terribly lonely because my mate has gone missing. My sweet Mr. Right and I have had a wonderful life together. In fact, we were the socks Sara chose to wear for her marathon. We went 26.2 miles together, making sure Sara's sweaty feet were comfortable and happy. It wasn't an easy feat (pun intended- hey, socks can be funny, too) but we did it. Together. And now, Righty is gone.

We have looked all over the house and just can't find him. Maybe the Sock Fairy took him. Maybe he ran off with that little Pink Sock that was always flirting with him... the little tramp! Perhaps he is lost in the mess of socks in the boys' drawers and can't find his way home.

His disappearance has left me heart-broken but I think I am finally ready to move on. I am looking for a new mate.

An Offer You Can't Refuse
I strategically chose today to commandeer Sara's blog page because this is her 100th post!

Yeah, yeah big deal...

I know a lot of bloggers celebrate these types of milestones by having a "Giveaway".

Well, here's the deal:

Sara doesn't know how to get cool companies to give her things that she can offer up as a prizes. She's sort of a loser that way. So, I decided I would offer up myself as the 100th Blog Giveaway. All you have to do to win me is have a mateless, lonely sock of your own (that's one entry), become a follower of my Sara's blog (that's entry number two), and send me a picture of your lonely sock (if he's good-looking, that's 20 entries... if not, it's one).

You see? It's a win-win-win situation! I get a new mate, you win a match for your mateless sock, and Sara gets upgraded to the status of being a Giveaway Blogger!

Not sure if I'm a good match for your sock? Well, here are some of the things I like best:
  • Rainy nights by the fire
  • Gritty walks on the beach
  • Warm bubble baths in the washing machine
  • Running
  • Adventure

Uh-oh- I better run now... here comes Sara. I just bet she is going to update her Facebook status for the 20th time today.

So long & good luck!

OMG this is seriously the funniest post EVER!! I lost BOTH my favorite socks after my marathon. Pretty sure they were traumatized when they were covered in YUCK and ran away on their own devises..


FYI you can always buy a few Gu's and give that away.. Or make a bracelet, that is what I did for my first Giveaway..

Best blog giveaway EVER!

I once found a sock that I thought was lost in a pair of running shoes that I was no longer wearing.

I've also found lonely socks underneath the floor mat in my car (I guess I was in a HUGE hurry to take those socks OFF).

I also suspect that my dryer eats socks because I have a drawer-full of single socks all searching for a mate...WTF is up with that?
