Shoes and Sox

We've been asked to show our favorite shoes.  These aren't my favorite shoes.  They're my only shoes.  I live in a retirement home that is being remodeled, and I'm assigned to a temporary room.  These are the only shoes I have with me. I hope I don't step in a puddle.

I notice that my socks don't match.  That's okay, they rarely do.  I have a wooden leg, so I don't bother to change the right sock until it wears out.  It is a matter of convenience taking precedence over fashion.  A pair of socks lasts me twice as long as other folks.  Until the fashion police catch me, I will limp along unmatched.  Hah.

Aha! Someone who owns fewer shoes than me! Hey wearing mis-matched socks can be quite the fashion statement, keep er up! Hope you are feeling better.
Please feel welcome to pop on over and read about my favorite foorwear. Warmest regards.

Hey, I caught your entry from Scalzi's page and thought you should know that mismatched socks are now the cutting edge of fashion.  There's a company starting up that is selling socks in packages of 1, 3 or 5, all guaranteed to be mismatched.  You can be the most fashion forward person you know, despite one pair of shoes!

I don't own many pairs of shoes and I am a woman!  I LOVE your sense of humor!!  Yes, life IS worth living!

I have only about two pairs of shoes that I wear on a regular basis.  
That is so funny that you wear two different socks!  
I am really enjoying your journal! -Krissy
