Bad haiku of the day
Squawk enough, parrot,
And soon you'll have your own show
On cable TV.
It's the socks. I know, I've always been overly obsessive that they should be on me right-side-out. Like, who can see them? Or care, if they COULD see them? But I know. And in years past, if I should (heaven forbid) spot that I had let one slip by me, even during the day, I'd change it.
