Tuesday: The Day The Socks Forgot

Yesterday was a busy day. Busy enough that I forgot to post the Tuesday’s sock post, but thankfully not so busy that I overlooked taking the picture altogether. Better late than never, right?

Monday Demands Color

And I wasn’t going to disappoint it. I put on my yellow shirt this morning, because, by the Eight Gleaming Sky Turtles, it’s nearly the end of April and I’m about ready for a little perky Springtime action. Instead I got a day full of grumpy ash-colored clouds and the occasional shower.

Nevertheless, I felt a lot better about the whole thing because I had a brightly colored shirt and — as you can see — socks to match. The weather better turn soon, though. Not that many pairs of yellow dots in the drawer.

Schooled By A Master

I was pretty pleased with today’s selection, because everybody gets the value of a good brunch on Sunday, right? And, obviously, the cornerstone of any brunch is eggs and bacon.

Of course, we enjoyed chips and salsa and sizzling fajitas at a cool Mexican joint after church today, but that’s neither here nor there. In retrospect, I suppose I should have gotten the juevos.

At any rate, none of that really matters, coz I got upstaged (bigly) on the sock front this weekend by George H. W. Bush, who made the entirety of the media-saavy U.S. collectively go “Awwwww”, by throwing a subtle tribute to his late wife and former First Lady Barbara with his socks.

You go, George. You go.

Lizards and Lacrosse, oh my!

I got a chance to get out and bask in the sun for a bit today during my son’s lacrosse game. Accordingly, I figured it’d be a good time to let the lizards on today’s socks bask on the bleachers a little bit themselves. We all enjoyed a dose of vitamin D and my son even scored his first goal. Hard to complain about any of that.

Hope you’re having a great weekend. Try not to set the place on fire!

Happy Birthday Socks

Today my oldest friend turned another year older, and while he is more than happy to claim that he only turned 36, you and I both know that he’s actually only a month younger than I am. Which is to say, not only is he my oldest friend, he’s literally my oldest friend.

He’ll likely give me no end of frowny red face for calling him out as being a decade older than he likes to claim, but then again, I’ve worn socks specifically for someone other than the Puddinette exactly one (1) times this year, and that was a pretty exceptional case. So happy birthday, dude, this pair of celebratory beer bottles is for you.*

*I will, of course, be pretending those aren’t green bottles, because we all know green means trash for beer. Luckily green bottles work perfectly well for socks.

A Vexing Pattern

Pretty cool, right? I’m going to be honest with you, though, I have absolutely zero idea how to describe them. Is that some kind of funky puzzle piece in a pattern? Or, uh, misshapen birds, maybe? I got no idea.

Knowing me, though, this is probably some well-known pattern with a weird name like “cougartooth” or “tunapelvis” or some somethung. I’m going to be laughing my socks off when someone comments below post and fills in the embarrassing but all too predictable gap in my ignorance.

In more exciting news, though, behold All. The. Tags!!

The Puddinette hit the mother lode of socks discounts this weekend and my sock drawer is about to burst from being jam-packed. And I’m not telling you what they look like!

Well, not yet, anyway. You’ll just have to keep checking to check the daily socks.

The News and A Noose

Had a chance to sit down and watch The Post tonight. I have to admit I’m a sucker for newspaper dramas; always have been. And I have to say, a movie pitting the government against the press was timely, to say the least. The media might have changed, but the conflict continues still.

Not that the Fourth Estate has much of anything to do with funky multi-colored, striped socks. Then again, for movie set in 1971, I was kind of surprised not to see any of the characters in a tie closely matching these. Which makes me wonder, maybe next year I should go for a year of crazy ties*?

*That’d seriously never happen. I hate ties. They look nice, sure, but why wear a pretty noose on purpose?

Sunlight and Superstition

I happened upon a stripe of late evening sunbeam to include with today’s socks, and the weather around here has been so neurotic lately, I wasn’t about to let it get away.

As for the socks, these would actually make a great pair to wear on a fall Sunday afternoon when the Bengals are playing, but I made a point to wear my Reds socks for the start of baseball season, and we can all see how that’s gone so far. It’s entirely possible the Bengals could start 3-13 in their next season too, and if that happens I don’t want anyone saying my socks had anything to do with it. 😏

Monday Is Exhausting For Everyone

I was planning to write a post today about how these socks made me contemplate a world where The Joker picked up a former geometry teacher sidekick, and how appropriate that whole concept was for a Monday. But then Smoky tried to bring me a toy to play with and was too tired to even follow through with the playing (note said toy half in his mouth). The puppy had all day training today and is basically Wiped. Out.

If you’ve ever had a not-quite-year-old puppy around the house, you get that I’m saying that things are remarkably out of the ordinary tonight at la Casa de Puddin. But I’m going to just assume the dog really liked my socks, since he was kind enough to basically collapse at my feet for picture time.

Surely that’s what that means…right?

Missed Opportunities

I wore these today because I had another hockey game and figured they were a good match for my jersey (not that I’d actually wear both at the same time, but that’s neither here nor there). As too often happens, though, life got in the way and I didn’t get to play tonight. But that’s okay, the socks are still awesome, and they deserved a solid Sunday outing anyway.
