A Doctor Seuss Rough Sketch

current state of mind: amused

And I got no idea where we’re going with this, no
I don’t know where we’re gonna land
And it might go better if we do it by the letter
So I need to know where I stand
~ “I Need to Know Where I Stand” by Rhett Miller

I really like Patton Oswalt.  I find him remarkably entertaining and insightful.  He also shouldn’t be heard by children under the age of 18.  I feel the same about this blog post.  Those under 18, stop reading now . . .  This blog post was inspired by a conversation I had with someone recently.  They suggested I blog it . . . so I am!

WTF is up with people who want to wear socks to bed?  By “to bed” I mean “while having relations in bed”.  People who wear socks during sex freak me out.  I don’t care how rushed or excited you are. . . there is no reason that you cannot kick those socks off before you begin doing the deed.  Now, do not confuse thigh high stockings and garters with socks.  Thigh high stockings can be pretty sexy and I understand why guys want to see a woman wearing them.  I do not understand why a woman would want to look at her beloved in bed and have him wearing socks; especially if they are wearing white calf length socks.  Good gourd. 

This is a conversation I have had several times in my lifetime, with an assortment of friends, family, and significant others.  I have only found a few people who thought sex in socks is appropriate.  I think those people are in denial.  Serious denial. 

So, if there is any lesson that you can learn today, please have this be it.  Before both feet are off the bedroom floor, kick those socks off. 

PERSONAL NOTE:   “Fear prophets and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them.”  ~ Umberto Eco

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE:  I am happy that you are happy.  Always.
