The Consequences Of Socks

February 29th, 2012 by Selise
A little pose I like to call, “The Flamingo”

Okay okay, I know. Socks, Selise? In summer? 

But guys it was cold out! Well, I mean…not legitimately cold. But it was rainy and less than 30 degrees.

And I love these socks! I bought them just before we took off overseas last year. And golly I’m glad I did. Because it was legitimately cold in Seattle. Really, really, legitimately cold. And one day, soon, it will be legitimately cold here too. And I will wear these socks with reckless abandon! 

I wonder what that actually entails…wearing socks recklessly. The dictionary says reckless is: without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. But what are the consequences of socks? Warmth? So I will wear them without caring about warmth? That’s kind of what I did here, right? I mean, if socks in summer aren’t reckless, I don’t know what is.

P.S I would like to take this opportunity to shout “Yippee!” with regard to the following 3 things:

The last day of summer. Hell yeah, autumn! Bring it baby!

Bonus day. What’s up, February 29? Where you been? (Ooh, sub-yippee for the Dinosaur Jr album of that name)

Reaching 99 followers! You guys, this is exciting! And I (obviously) couldn’t have done it without you. So thanks!!!
