Project 313 – Post No. 103

I rarely wear shoes without socks. Well, I do when at home. Meaning, I seldom wear socks when wearing slippers.  

Out and about, however, socks it is. I used to be a strict crew-socks guy because them shorter socks had a tendency to “travel” down into my shoes. Some might point to that being evidence my shoes didn’t fit well but I blame the socks. 

I mean, once, I might have agreed with you. However, I now wear ankle-length socks that hold their position regardless of which cheap $20 shoes I wear. 

In fact, even crew socks “traveled” down until I started buying more expensive socks. The annoying part was that I didn’t like wearing crew socks so I folded the tops down to turn them into quarter-length sox.

Did I mention I tan easy? Get me thirty minutes in the sun, and the next day my skin is noticeably darker. Because I always wear socks outside and because I wear shorts and never go outside without a t-shirt, my tan typically begins at my ankles, goes up to mid-thigh (I don’t like knee-length shorts), and resumes just above my elbow and at my neck.

The rest of me is pasty-white.

Where am I going with this? Nowhere. I just needed a few words to pass the time. Also, you now have a disturbing mental image. You are welcome. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 103

So, I faced a difficult choice . . . the photo itself is of a framed subject. But, not the kind of frame I’ve been using for these photos. 

Really, not that difficult at all . . . I had to add my own frame.

Speaking of changing gears . . . 

I’m always amazed at people who don’t keep what they own updated.  

. . . but it makes for a funny cartoon . . . 

Joe Martin always breaks the fourth wall. Meaning, one of the characters in the cartoon typically looks out at the reader, bringing them into the joke. In the Willy ‘n Ethel strip, it’s usually one of the characters. For the Mr. Boffo strip, it’s usually Weederman, the dog. It works just as well.

I wonder if there’s an alternate universe that has a different — and completely opposite — composition to our universe? What if geckos lived there? I mean, I don’t really care; in fact, it’s the opposite of caring; it doesn’t matter to me in the least. You see where I’m going with this, right? A representation of  Alternate Anti-Matter Gecko Universe

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.
