I was recently with a high school girl who, when she took off her shoes, revealed two completely mis-matching socks. My first thought was of course, “huh – her socks don’t match!” My second thought was, “I wonder if that’s the cool new thing to do?”
Fast forward to the next day, where I was with a large group of friends and family at my parent’s house. Across the room I noticed a young guy – early college – wearing two completely mis-matching socks. My first thought was, “Huh – what a strange coincidence!” But my second thought was, “It really MUST be the cool new thing to do!”
Moments later, there was a college-aged girl and you’ll never guess what she was wearing… How did you know?! Mis-matching socks! I had to put an end to my madness, and asked her to fill me in on this sweet new trend so that I, too, could be cool.
She looked at me strangely – what cool new trend? I just totally mis-matched my socks on accident today! was her response. The guy said the same thing. And tracing back my steps to the high-school girl, her switcharoo was also accidental!!! What are the ODDS?
And to think, I was getting REALLY excited to wear mis-matched socks to my job training today! That was close…too close!
