After a week of toast, and sandwiches made from leftovers dinners, what are you supposed to do with the empty bread bag?

When I was in primary school, I remember my friends slipping a plastic bag over their socked feet before putting on their winter boots at recess time or at the end of the school day. I adopted this fashion accessory after I discovered I had a hole in my boot. 

A more grown up version of this idea is to first moisturize your feet, put on a pair of socks, cover with the plastic bag socks, read a book for 30 minutes, then remove both “socks”. You don’t want your feet to get sweaty- I think that would defeat the purpose.

It’s too hot and dry now to be worried about winter boots and “soakers”.  But if it ever rains again this summer, you could always slip on a pair of plastic bag socks, jump in a puddle and start singing in the rain.
