Black and Gus and Navy



Merci:  It looks like I'm the only one that showed up to write our post for today so this will be a solo report.

In the same humorous vein as our recent story of Jan's strange footwear ( Imaginary Shoe Inserts), I heard a true story I'd like to share.

A man traveled occasionally for his job.  One day he found one navy sock under the bed where he stayed.  He took it home and put it in the laundry.  See, he wore only black socks and he knew his wife would go crazy trying to match the one navy sock; however, she didn't have any problem finding it a mate.

One day he noticed he was wearing one black and one navy sock.

Getting even with the jokester must have been such fun!

And by the way, that was not Jan's first mismatched shoes experience. Back in 2005, she wrote Black and Gus for her spiritual-minded Mercy and Percy blog. 

Just for the record, Black and Gus were not the names of Jan's shoes. They were two cows... sort of.

  4. Our dad wore mismatched shoes for his mother-in-law's funeral. He did not notice they weren't matching until dressing for the funeral. And since the funeral was 1500 miles away from home he had no choice. Hoomans are so weird.

    Your Pals,

  14. Pawppy wears black support hose, mostly...and when he wears the navy ones, the petcretary has to take them to a window to make sure she matches them...sometimes she isn't too sure...oh-oh. What will pawppy think later in the day at the office when he sees them in bright light...and not matched too well...the petcretary tells him to tie his hose together to keep them matched but he doesn't do that...so any mismatches are *his* fault...so there!!! Bwahahaha!
