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. There I was, face to face, with a behemoth wall of dairy. Jugs, cartons, bottles…large & small…bedazzled my milk-toast mind. When did milk decide to diversify? …

Seeing The Light

Seeing The Light

  A broken collarbone changes life temporarily. But little did I know my situation would have me seeing the light.   Unable to climb the stairs to our bedrooms, a make-shift sleeping area was established for me in the living room with a nice big picture window. My bed.  Plenty of room.  Cozy & comfy. …

Doggone Silly

Doggone Silly

  As pet owners we go over-the-top for our furry friends. The choices of toys, bedding, even food & treats are overwhelming. The days of a tennis ball, blanket and a bowl of Purina are so passe it is ridiculous. We treat our pets better than some nations care for their people–but that’s a whole …

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.) Yet lately I have felt stranger in the shower. A closed-in feeling of claustrophobia. Between walls of fiberglass …

A My Odd Sock St. Patty’s Day

A My Odd Sock St. Patty’s Day

  St. Patrick’s Day is approaching fast as everyone readies their celebrations. Decorations are hung.  Green lights shine.  Bars and restaurants advertise Irish favorites for a day of Celtic fun. Yet, I am indifferent.  Uninterested.  Overwhelmed by the blatant commercialism of St. Patrick’s Day. I just don’t have the spirit of the holiday. Others tell …

Middle Squeezers

Middle Squeezers

  There comes a time when differences appear. A realization that one is alone.  Individual, not by choice, but habit. Where there is no right, nor wrong…just action, practice and propriety.   My fair and lofty sentiments reflect a conclusive feeling of aversion that I, as a end-squeezer, live amongst a family of…middle-squeezers.     …
