I remember as a kid all those apocryphal stories we would hear about the excesses of the rich and eccentric and the one that stayed with me was the rich guy who only wore his socks once. "What extravagance," we would think. (Although we probably didn't know the actual word extravagance, we knew the concept.) Now I am not so sure. After buying a pack of new Hanes Crew Socks at Target for $4.99 I am tempted to start practicing extravagance. There is something so wonderful about putting on brand-new socks. And at $4.99 for six pairs its cheap.
