Socks in the Drawer

You have a drawer with 10 pairs of black socks and 10 pairs of white socks. How many times do you need to blindly reach inside the drawer and take out a sock, so that you get a matching pair?

Only 3 times. Once you have two socks of the same color, they already form a matching pair.
