On becoming civilized

I'm ironing my socks. I honestly don't know which part of that sentence I should have highlighted. Is it me doing ironing that's so amazing? Or is it the useless chore of ironing that I'm doing? Or is it the socks that have finally gained equal rights with the rest of my wardrobe? One thing is clear - I am now officially more civilized.

    it is not only wrong but also well i can’t find an appropriate word that would not offend you. Why on earth would you do that? I can understand ironing underwear but not sock. That is weird? One should ask onesefl the purpose of general ironing first to see how weird it is to iron socks.
    Well, it is your time, they are your socks.

  3. One day an airplane is about to crash. The pilot announces that everyone on board is going to die and they should start preparing for the end of their life. Some people start to panic, some start to pray and some are still asleep. Suddenly, a beautiful young girl leaps up from her seat and shouts “I’m still young and inexperienced… I want someone to make me a woman!”

    Quickly responding to her plight a handsome young man jumps up, rips of his shirt and says “You want me to make you a woman? Here, start by ironing this shirt.”


    Misogynistic jokes aside, at least you can find your socks. My socks keep disappearing in the laundry. I had to go out today wearing a black sock with Homer Simpson on it and a brown evening-wear sock.

    Ah me, the life of a student!

  7. At least you have socks… I can’t count the number of socks I have bought and yet I can never seem to find more than one pair of odd-socks… I swear there’s some sort of black-hole of socks in my room and as soon as I’ve finished wearing a pair whoosh they get sucked in. Or maybe the underpants gnomes have decided to steal socks instead?

  11. A comfortable pair of socs is almost as necessary as a comfortable pair of underpants.
