The thing about Thursdays/Knee Highs

The thing about Thursdays is that I'm going to attempt to post my random thoughts about fill in the blank every week. On Thursday. Hence the title. The thing about Thursdays.

But this Thursday, the thing isn't really about Thursdays. That was more of an explanation, or preface, if you will. This Thursday's thing is about knee highs.



The thing about knee highs is that wearing them during competitive events can be quite intimidating for your opponents. I have found that people subconsciously associate long socks with superior batting/throwing/kicking/grammar/sliding/running/hitting/math skills.

The thing about knee highs is that if you're pressed for time, you can skip shaving your entire leg and just do the knee part.

The thing about knee highs is that if you're having a really rough game, they are still there, giving your calves a lil hug and telling you everything will be OK.

Even though you are really into striking out things on your blog... I hope that doesnt carry over into your playing! I would be so intimidated by you and those socks!

I think you are right. The knee high factor is huge. I should have worn some for the race.
If I would have had all my stuff together I would have contacted you and we could have met for picnic lunch on Sunday or Wednesday when we were traveling trhough Duluth! My kids loved throwing rocks in the water and climbing on the "Islands" though, so I am sure we will be back!

Me!? Strike out!!? You've got to be kidding!:) And Heather, the feeling is mutual. Maybe one of these days we'll meet at a fabulous party and laugh hysterically till we both pee our pants. Or wait, were you being sarcastic? In which case I don't really care for you much either;)
