Do you know how cool it is to go to the gym wearing odd socks? Not very cool at all. Probably you do not know, because y'all seem quite fashionable and sensible out there in the blogosphere. That is, until the arrival of the fashion disaster that is me.
They weren't even vaguely similar, we are talking one secret sock and one long school type sock that you need to fold down. I tried my best to tuck it into my shoe but it kept riding all the way up my leg while I was running. I think it is possible that people noticed.
I am just not very good at the sock thing. Usually I don't care because they are underneath my jeans and no one can see. I am not very good at the dressing thing in general. I once went to the climbing gym wearing my trousers back to front. It is possible. They were large trousers. It took AGES before anyone said anything, too.
When some guy finally asked me if my trousers were meant to be that way round, he had this look on his face like "are you OF our species?"
I probably would have got a similar look in South Africa too, but the English are particularly talented at this look of "what I am seeing is too weird to happen so I am not actually seeing it".
Meh. I need a wardrobe assistant. Or even better, an invisibility cloak. How cool would that be? I wouldn't even have to bother with clothes. Think of what a fortune I would save. A bit cold though, perhaps.
