Sock it To Me

Don't you just hate it when trends you hated the first time around come back to haunt you? You avoided them like the plague and waited patiently until the Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Punky Brewster rainbow socks went bye bye...only to have them become even more popular again. Like the mythological Hydra who grew two heads when you cut off one (my 8th grade English teacher would be so proud). What trend am I blabbing about? Tube socks.

You might have seen them plastered on dozens of suggestive American Apparel billboards about town featuring gorgeous, skinny models lounging about in their sockies and boyshorts looking like totally tubular. Beware. This trend is not for everyone. Sure they're cool and nostalgic in a Dazed and Confused kind of way, but they didn't work for me in 5th grade PE when I was doing squad thrusts, and they sure as hell ain't gonna work for me now. Seriously, I'll end up looking more like this than this. No offense Little Miss Sunshine. So the next time a trend you weren't crazy about rears it's ugly head again, heed my advice. sammy says relax...don't do it.
