A Simple Decision Every Morning
There are decisions I must make every day from the moment I wake up. I have to make a simple decision every morning when I get dressed. The result depends upon the mood I am in, how I feel when I wake up. It is my decision and it affects me for the rest of the day. Most blokes would be horrified that this is an important decision. It is only a reflection of my mood when I get out of bed.
A simple decision every morning
Some decisions are life changing. Some are solved by a combination of good fortune and luck. Some are easy decisions such as do I go need to go the loo.
The problem could not be simpler
The decision is, what colour socks am I going to wear today? Let me make this quite clear. I am not in the least bit fashion conscious.
The Wife has to approve the clothes I wear when we go out. I do not know what colours can go with other colours. I am the opposite of a fashionista. What could I be called, a fashionurk or a fashionoike.
I suspect you think I am nuts
No one goes around looking at the socks that a bloke wears. I certainly don’t. I suspect most men wear slightly boring socks.
So I have about 12 to 15 pairs of socks ranging in colour from blue to green to yellow to beige even pink. To me the colour I chose is important because it reflects my mood. It is my decision and I know it affects me for the rest of the day.
There is one problem with this idea
What happens if I lose one of the socks, well that’s too bad. If its more than one do you wear two different coloured socks? At the moment I have about 6 socks that have lost their partners. Umm I can see difficult choices coming up.
Where is this great sock in the sky?
How many odd socks can be matched up to make pairs of socks?
There is one thing that I can say with complete confidence. This clothing idiosyncrasy has nothing what so ever to do with multiple sclerosis. Nor is it a feeble and pathetic attempt to be fashionable. It is just my way of making myself feel happier.
