Luxurious Extravagance

We stopped at a mall and Lloyd complained that he wanted some new socks. I don’t know what his problem is – after the bat bug incident I threw out all but three pairs of white socks, and honestly, how many pairs of socks does one person need?? Doesn’t he know that you really don’t need many clothes at all?

But, no, he wouldn’t listen to reason. I had bought him a three-pack at Wal-Greens when Beth bought Goggles for her children, but those weren’t fancy enough for him. He bought fancy socks at the mall, and then another one because it was fifty percent off. So now he has fifteen pairs of socks! That is outrageous!!

He was wearing one pair for this photo, so there are only 14 pairs.

Lloyd says that if he was a rich man, he would wear a new pair of socks every day and then give the old socks away. (I hope he would clean them first.)

    I once bought some underwear for a boyfriend, hoping to replace some of his more tattered briefs. His response? “Oh good, now I can go even longer between trips to the laundromat!”

    I hope your feet are enjoying their premium comfort! There is nothing worse than sore feet!

    I’m happy for you, Lloyd. New socks? Nice. Premium socks? Awesome!

    Though it looks like you could at least have played golf in those Walgreens socks. Maybe you can put that on your list of things to do: “Play golf in Walgreens socks.”

    How many cotton plants were harvested just so you could have those PREMIUM socks?

    So how long have you been a white sox fan?
