I poke holes in the toes of EVERY pair of socks. The socks I'm wearing right now... when I put them on this morning there were no holes. Now there are holes. I don't remember this happening before I went to college. I mean, yeah my school is in the mountains and I walk a lot, but I feel like that shouldn't be causing me to get a hole at my big toe in every sock I own! I keep my toenails clipped in hopes of preventing this but it does no good.
