When did that happen? Ok, I’m 39. And I admit I was never on the fringe of fashion. But wow, I'm officially out of touch. I was alerted to my “lame” status by the younger hip coworkers. Apparently all the cool kids are not only popping Xanax® pills, and doing eyeball shots [future post], they are also wearing ONLY ankle socks. Available for $8.64 (for 6-pairs) at Amazon.com. Personally, I like the big athletic crew socks. You really get a lot of sock for your money (see above the visual). Of course I am always open to suggestions. But not without first conducting an impromptu survey while walking to work this morning. Here are the results…
- Young muscle-head – short socks
- Old man (70ish) – long socks
- Bike messenger – short socks
- Shirtless street musician – short socks
- Mentally unstable individual – long socks
I lost. [Big surprise] So I guess I’ll be buying one of these jobbies next week. I'll let you know how they work out.
