Socks #2

by

There’s no point wearing port and starboard socks if nobody sees them. They won’t realise their significance and my nod towards boating holidays. You don’t wear port and starboard socks not to be noticed.

Yesterday, eight friends were coming for lunch. An appropriate outing for the new socks. Dilemma though, do I wear my cool dude tight trousers that cover my ankles or a pair that fly at half mast, making me look a complete twat?

I decided against looking a twat, so nobody noticed the socks, or commented. Or maybe they noticed and still thought I looked a twat!

    McB obviously didn’t notice because he would have been quick to announce my twatliness either way!

    You need to save them for a summer boating holiday, and wear some shorts ;)

    Phew!!! Have never worn them and never intend to Jeff! Deck shoe boy myself... perfect to show off the socks, except that worn with shorts, that would make me look a right twat, whatever the footwear...

    Aah, credibility restored :)
    Also, there's nothing wrong with looking like a twat, as long as you know you do :)
