Amongst The Socks
In a single day the other day I saw or heard
from 4 different people who
were in the hospital having body parts amputated, mostly toes. They
acquired frostbite and gangrene. They all drink. They all live outside.
They all “know better”, but all had let their feet get
wet. Dry socks might
have saved their feet.
Mountain people and wilderness enthusiasts say,
“cotton kills”. Meaning,
if you are outside and cotton gets wet it doesn’t dry out
fast. The socks
most people have are those inexpensive white cotton tube socks.
fine if they stay dry, but not for cold and wet situations.
A person might say we, as adults, are responsible
for our own feet. That
is true. But in the end someone pays for that amputation, and it’s
person who lost the toes. Cut the middle man.
Save some toes today.
Give a drunk a pair of good wool socks.
