Every morning we get ready and leave for school. The last thing I say as we leave the house is "Does everyone have their shoes and socks on?" This morning, I said it, and it occurred to me, we always say "Put your shoes and socks on.", but you put your socks on first, so wouldn't it make more sense to say, "Put on your socks and shoes."? I don't know, maybe we all just talk weird where I live, but it's always shoes and socks instead of socks and shoes. Any theories on why?Answer Question

I think it rolls off the tongue nicer with shoes and socks rather than socks and shoes. You have a good point though.
