Yuck, Elly. You like to walk around with soggy sock? Or are you just gonna go to your room to dispose of it and put on a mismatching sock. Are you saying you were lucky to have the fuzzy socks on so you could wipe the carpet dry without having to fetch paper towel and bend over to pat dry? If so, no difference. You still have to bend over to remove the soggy sock and put on a clean one. I think the sock thing would take more energy and time while patting dry would just take a few seconds.
