A Haiku For Preliminary Thanksgiving Prep

Proper colored socks…

Polka Dots Via Folk Rock

Had a hard time picking a pair of socks today. You want to start out on a Monday with something flashy and on point, but then you can’t find anything that screams, “Yo! Pick me!” Especially when the rest of the week has a pretty exciting holiday line-up at the ready (well, for socks, anyway). […]

Several Hundred Frozen Turkeys And A Lot Of Teamwork

Not everyone digs my Minion socks, but I had to wear a pair of them today. One of the things we do as a family each year is to volunteer to help with a local food drive for Thanksgiving. It’s not a big charity association event or anything, just done by a guy we know […]

Domo Arigato, Mister

Domo Arigato, Mister

I wasn’t sure what I was going to say this morning about the robot on my feet when I put these on. But then I spent the day working on the office and then doing more than just a few things at the house to make the Puddinette happy. After getting home, I didn’t even […]

Foxy Friday

Sorry, kids. I’m not sure what you were expecting, but in my life, “foxy” ain’t what it used to be. This is handsome red creature on today’s pair is Foxy, the third and last of the Five Nights at Freddy’s character socks I’ve acquired over the course of the 2018. While Youngest son always seemed […]

Responsible Cocktails

Apparently it’s a thing now to wake up one morning in the middle of November to find the world covered in ice (literally encased in most instances), even though by my count, winter is still technically more than month away. Yet, even after hearing stories about school buses sliding into downed tree limbs, your kids […]

Camps Of Least Resistance

These are camping socks. No, not socks FOR camping, but rather socks about camping. Sock for camping are, like, uniformly plaid and composed of thick woven wool. These are neither. They aren’t keeping anyone’s tootsies toasty during a dark blustery night in a tent, nor standing up to the elements on a long hike. Which […]

A Haiku For A Busy Month

Building much this month…

Because Gondolas Don’t Have Windshields

The one productive thing I did yesterday in the midst of watching the Bengals get embarrassingly trounced at home was to prep the garage for winter. See, I don’t park the ole Middle-Aged Man Sedan in the garage during the temperate months because there’s bikes and sportsing gear and swimming accessories, and, well, a vast […]

Sports Are The Best Punishment

When I put today’s socks on this morning, in knew one of two things would happen. Either my Bengals would rise to the occasion (for once) and make it a game against the Saints — who many are saying are the best team in the NFL — or, more likely, considering the state of their […]
