A few years ago, I got a copy of "Stupid Sock Creatures" and for about six months afterward the sock population in my household was seriously at-risk, matched or no. In my opinion at the time, if it wasn't currently grasping on to its twin, it was a single and needed some TLC in the form of being cut to pieces and having buttons sewed on it. Princess Tadpole is one of my all-time favorites. She lives in some house somewhere with somebody else now, I guess.
I can't post the picture directly yet since this is only my 2nd post.
