Last week I went to Tokyo. I got myself a windbreaker and I got my baby a pop-up book and a mobile. I got origami paper and tea and a Wi-Fi-enabled zoom-lens earwax picker. I bought trinkets for my friends — stickers, pins, a pop-up book, a bracelet, a squishy peach that looks like a butt. Of course I got a lot of snacks.

But I made sure I got socks. If you get socks everywhere you go, you’ll have a souvenir that sticks around for months or years.


Do you think wearing socks to bed is totally dorky? Well, as it turns out, socks could be the secret to falling asleep faster, sleeping longer and waking up less during the night. Why? Well, as we all know, cold feet are the worst, in a lot of different ways.

You could replace all your socks with 20 identical pairs, or you could learn to fold your socks right, so they don't stretch out or come unmatched. In the video above, we demonstrate the ideal form of sock origami.
