Um. Yes.

Okay, I can explain. When married for double digits, it’s hard to figure out things to buy for a spouse. Either something is needed, in which case buy it now and be done with it, or it’s not, so why get it at all. This leads to conversations that start with, “I don’t want to own it, but…” when observing an item. So I saw these socks in a catalog (we enjoy looking through catalogs at breakfast and sharing stuff we find) and I did not start my observation that way. And so…

They are really cool socks, btw. And good socks-as-socks.

Make sense?
