Evening all, hope you are well, and if not, sending every good wish.
Now then, some time ago Mr P bought a pack of 5 pairs of socks, in various shades of brown, from Sainsburys. He then bought another pack of 5 pairs, again in various shades of brown, from somewhere else
You can probably guess where this is going....... we have ended up with a veritable pile of socks, in various shades of brown (even including the dreaded beige) which will NOT make a pair! Some almost do, but as they have possibly been washed separately from their intended mates, it's a bit hit and miss.
I thought I had a bit of a bright idea, which is unusual for me , especially on a Sunday, which is when it happened.
What if he bought some socks that were all the same colour, except for the heels & toes?? Surely they would look ok for work, but be much easier to match up!
We duly set forth to our local Factory Shop, where I showed him a pack of black ones, but with lime green, bright blue, fuschia and orange "hidden" bits. He was delighted, and immediately put them in the basket.
But then came the moment, he said "what about these?" I will admit that they were reasonably priced, cotton rich, and in his size.
However, they were the most luridly striped socks that I have seen in a long time!
Now, Mr P is normally most sober in his dress, he had a bit of a fit of the vapours over a red polo shirt once, so at first I thought he was joking, but no, into the basket they went!
Oh well, I suppose I shouldn't complain, it will make washing sorting easier, but he still has no sense of what goes with what, and will no doubt be wearing the blue/purple/red stripe ones with clay coloured chinos (shudder) when it is obvious that the lime/orange/yellow would be better!
