Sleeping in Socks


“The coldest winter I ever spent was January in the Goodkin’s house.”  - Mark Twain

San Francisco is generally warm enough that one old chugging heater in the hallway is enough. Except in January. We could leave ours on all night and that would solve it, but we have some unspoken agreement that this is forbidden. Don’t ask me why.

But last night, my feet were too cold under the blankets to sleep. So being the clever person I am, I put on some socks. That solved one problem. But the fact is that it doesn’t feel right to sleep in socks. Like some energy that needs to flow out the feet is capped and bottled up and affects the rest of the body. Is there any science behind this? How many people actually sleep in socks? Just wondering.

Our country may be going to hell in a hand-basket, but at least it’ll be warm and I can sleep without socks.
