Sock story

June 1, 2010

Gadget, Journal, Prototype

Again, this is about another stolen idea.

The stool that I sit on every second that I’m home when I use the computer has thoroughly scratched up the floor underneath it. The floors around here are all scratched up anyway, but this was getting ridiculous. I’ve tried those stick-on chair pads, but they keep falling off. Long ago we tried the nail-on kind, and guess what happens when one of those falls off? You have a nailhead that sticks out of the chair leg and really scratches your floor.

Back to the stealing. I saw these chair socks and thought they were the cutest thing ever. While I don’t want to shell out the money for those, I’m not above spending a few bucks for for some cheap-o baby socks.

I think they were three bucks for two pair.  Or six.  I don't remember.

On tiptoe.

They’re working out splendidly, though I have to pull them up every so often – just like my regular socks.

    I like how you’ve lined up the heels to make it look like the chair is walking forward.
