"I'm just impressed that they always match; I can never find a matching pair." My friend Zelda said.
My response, which is the same when asked this questions, was "Life is too short to wear boring socks."
When I first moved to England I had English friends make fun of my boring"white American socks." One time at the gym, I was even identified as The American with American [white] Socks. So my first Christmas in England I decided to use some Christmas money to buy my first, non-boring socks for daily wear. I now rarely ear the "American socks."
Since then I have bought more and more colorful (dare I say fabulous?) socks. Above is a picture of my sock-mobile that hangs above our fridge (see previous post for a picture of it in my garden). The pair on the right are those I was wearing when my friend asked the above question.
To the left is a picture of my socks. Since summer is coming, the cheap store in Birmingham (Primark) has all their new bright socks out. I am looking forward to buying the neon-argyle they have in.
Yes, I am a sock weirdo! :)
VIVAN LOS CALCETINES FABULOSOS!!!
