2-Pairs-of-Socks-a-Day & Presidential Footwear.

4,January, 2008

I‘m starting to realize that this new-sock-a-day stuff might prove to be trickier than I thought. Let’s say I start the day with a black sock but then decide to go to the gym. My upbringing would never allow me to wear black with trainers. (That would be up there with socks and sandals.) What to do? Do I wear old white socks or must my feet only touch new socks this year? If I choose new ones then some days would be two-new-pairs-of-socks-days. That seems a tad extravagant to me. Do I set rules or go with the flow? Comments please.

Speaking of sandals and socks. Congrats to Huckabee and Obama last night. That would be an interesting national race. If it came down to it I’d have to pick Obama cause I could never imagine him in white socks and sandals. Huckabee unfortunately I can – easily.

Welcome to A Year of Gratuitous Socks.

I am sure may of you have fantasized about what you would do if you ever became rich and famous. I have always thought that if I ever found myself in the situation where I had more money than sense (which by the way is not a lot of money) that I would – wear a new pair of socks every day.

One day last year it occurred to me that I might not ever become rich and famous (imagine.) So I decided to go for it. As far as rich and famous fantasies go – a new pair of socks every day is not so difficult a proposition. It’s not like I’m buying a Maserati a month. So every day in 2008 I am going to wear a new pair of socks and blog the experience.

Now, prospective blog subscriber, before you decide that you would rather read a blog about toenail collecting (I once met a guy with a toenail collection – remind me to tell you about it one day) I hasten to add that I will also be commenting on other events and interests in ’08 including: life as a professional magician, recipes from the Single Dad’s Cookbook, the American election, and most exciting to me – the publication of my first novel – Shadowmagic.
