no matter how good our premarital counseling may have been, i have learned that marriage brings out new – sometimes frustrating – and often disconcerting revelations about my dear wife. This has been exemplified no better than in a persistent battle being waged in our household that we call, “Nuggets Vs. Bunny Ears.”
this battle, so aptly named, is all about – get ready for it – socks.

to be more specific, this is about how my wife and i choose to fold socks in warring fashions (not to be confused with “warring factions.” see: Republican Party).
we often do laundry together as a team-building exercise, but there do arise times when the duty is thrust upon one of us rather than the other.
now, both of us hang shirts up in the same manner and fold pants the same way. and though my wife knows how to fold my boxers appropriately, i admit i remain clueless on how to separate and organize her own undergarments, which will forever remain a mystery to me. therefore, we have agreed that in the interest of our collective sanity, it is best for me to leave them in a pile for her to contend with.
but sock-folding is something we cannot be reconciled on. i prefer to fold my socks into Nuggets.
tuck pair of socks into itself entirely to create a sound, secure ball of sockiness. when folded in this manner, you can be confident they will stay securely tucked until needed, like troops assembled for battle.
my wife, on the other hand, prefers to fold her socks into Bunny Ears.
