In Defense of Socks

My pal Mark Bialczak is currently experiencing some static regarding footwear/sock combinations. If you’re a regular around here you know that I go a little shoe crazy at times with the lens. I posted this shot:

And this one:
date nightI could go on, and on, and on. My name is Sandra and I’m a shoe pirate.

Yesterday I hippity hopped across our lawn with Oliva in tow delivering a basket of goodies to a neighbor. On our return again through our lawn I regretted my choice of footwear as I flipped and the Godzilla of bees flopped between my foot and the sole of my sandal. “Mommy, what does son of a b*@#$ mean?”

The moral of the story:

1) Socks and sandals might have prevented this unfortunate most painful experience.

2) The easter bunny has a potty mouth.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

        We have the easiest team uniform to conform ever, Sandra. White socks is all we need to match!

    I’ll one up you and say my socks don’t ever match. If they do, it’s a coincidence!

    I love your shoes!

      That’s awesome! I’ll bet you have some colorful pairs in your collection too!

    Haha! At least Olivia will have a broad vocabulary!


    • April 21, 2014 at 11:47 am

      It will be colorful, Catherine. That is for sure!

    I read it Godzilla of “beers,” and had a visual of you dropping a 40 of malt liquor on your foot. But bees are much worse. I have melissophobia: fear of beers and wasps. Also, these pics look like they should be on the WordPress site “toemailers.” They love feet and shoe shots. And not in a creepy way…


    • April 21, 2014 at 11:52 am

      Hahaha! You thirsty Kerbey? I wish it was a 40 but no unfortunately it was the mothra of bees. Have any suggestions on relieving the sting? Maybe I should try a 40? The pain woke me up at 2am. Stupid bee.

        I’m no help here. Last year I got stung by a wasp on my arm and it swelled up and turned red for two weeks. I was even prettier than usual. Things that sting are the devil.

    Ooh that is horrible. I’ve been stung by bees three times in my life – once when merrily walking barefoot across grass. I still go barefoot but I look where I’m treading!


    • April 21, 2014 at 2:55 pm

      Know of any home remedies for the discomfort? The sting is still hanging on.

        I got some cream from the Chemist! No home remedies I’m afraid – sorry. Hope the sting goes away soon.

    Poor bee! She died for your lack of sock.


    • April 21, 2014 at 3:00 pm

      Yeah, if you’re keeping score at home that’s one bee and a spider. If I start to lose followers I’ll understand why.

      Yep, but really the poor bee got the worst of it.

    Loved the question

      Unfortunately she has a great memory and dwells on questions like these until she’s satisfied with an answer.
