Childish Again

I have posted in the past about bringing clothing that belonged to my children (socks, underpants) into work instead of my own stuff. Those incidents were accidental. Now I have started taking their stuff on purpose...
 
 
 
 My Left Foot - no, not that My Left Foot; My Left Foot.
 
Allow me to explain. If you have children who play organized soccer, you may well have found yourself with a rather large supply of soccer socks, your children having been issued them in year after year of playing. Strangely, those soccer socks, although intended for the children, are usually big enough to fit me quite nicely. I wear them under my long work pants, of course. They are comfortable, breathe very well and are a nice dark black colour. They even feel good on my legs, like girdles for my calves!
 
Hey, wait just one damn minute... have I started wearing black knee-high support hose? Crap! They're just my kids' soccer socks, dammit! I swear!
 
 
I will not be this now, at the age of 43. No way. Maybe later. Maybe.
 
 
 
Forget that, man. Those socks are going back into the kids' clothes. As far as you know, anyway.

Indoor soccer shoes are also good for riding. Once your kids are done with them, I mean.

Comfort will win and sooner than you think.
At 43 girls are already making fun of you behind your back.

Fool - They are not. They think I'm cool. You know, with the panniers and the helmet camera, beer belly and all that. I am HOT, and intend to just get HOTTER.

Do you finish your kids' food too?

RANTWICK said...

Yep. I might starve if I didn't.

Now it is a great post and all, but I think the Oldfool nailed it. Laughed out loud!! I would have no issues wearing them, know that.

Thanks for the post!

rlove - I know, I know... don't tell anybody, but I have continued to wear them. OldFool knows his stuff.

Go for it, if it works for ya! I, for one, don't always care to appease others; at least in what I wear.
Peace :)
