got which kind?

got which kind?

  Me:  “I’m off to the store.” Voice:  “Get some milk.” Me:  “Okay.” Famous last words. Because a short time later, a breezy chill of refrigeration tickled exposed skin.

Hit The Shower

Hit The Shower

Time to clean-up with this older My Odd Sock sudsy post.  Enjoy!     There’s nothing new about taking a shower. Most of us go through this routine process nearly every day.  (Once a week for me.)
