Just realized tonight while driving that I really like the word “sock.” But not as in the kind you wear on your foot (unless you’re talking about sock puppets). I like it when used in these kinds of contexts:
“Sock away money for a few months…”
“Sock-it-to-me cake” (I didn’t make that up, it’s in my Great Grandma Irma’s recipes)
“She was so mad she socked him in the face”
Maybe this is why I like the term “sock monkey” so much. Two of my favorites in one whimsical phrase.
Isn’t there a line in an oldies song that says something like “sock it to me?” Can we please bring that phrase back? I’ll give it a go.
