Venom-less Variations

I put these on this morning because it was dark and Monday and I was tired and they matched what I was wearing…even as monochromatic as they are. Looking at them now, though, I’m struck by the angled pattern of the stripes. Pretty sure I’ve worn a similar pair before, but seeing them on my feet, I’m wishing they had a stripe of orange-red, like those crazy venomous snakes from the jungle.

Yes, I know, nobody likes snakes, but if you’re going to wear socks with zig-zag stripes, they might as well act as a warning sign that you’re not the kind of person to be messed with. Which, admittedly, isn’t really me…but then, I guess that’s why I’m only wearing the gray ones. 😏
