Socks, ah yes... it takes me back to a time, quite a long time ago when I still worked at good ol' Wal-Mart (Wally World as we sometimes affectionately called it). The father of one of my friends whom I worked with at the time, used to wear those funny ankle socks with the little "puff ball" on the back of them. I think they may be called "pom pom socks". The first time I saw this I thought I was going to die laughing. I thought to myself, 'Aren't these for little girls?'
|Happy No Socks Day!|
So whenever he would stroll through the store, and I happened to come face-to-face with "Pom Pom Daddy", he would always smoothly belt out, "Helllo Kiddo!!!" in a sharp Midwestern accent, to which I would have to shrink inwardly to contain my laughter. Then I would maintain my composure, muster up that sweet, southern charm (that we Mississippi girls are famous for) and make friendly conversation, keeping my cool pom-pom-ERRRR poker face strong. ;-)
In conclusion, it would seem that there are occasions when celebrating "No Sock Day" would be best... yes, so to all of you fine ladies and especially gentlemen out there? SOCK RESPONSIBLY!
