Speaking of the laundry gnome that came up on Monday’s post, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Brother’s Grimm for their wonderful portrayals of ghastly, horrible creatures. They’re terribly unsuitable for children which is why they’re great! How would the Brother’s portray this modern-day sock elf, as my dear friend, ‘starbear’ refers to them? I imagine it would look a lot like Rumpelstiltskin who would only work for socks. I would have tons of currency for this fine fellow.
After a rotten day full of snow, a missed interview (I was present, the interviewer was not) and a ill-fated shopping trip, I am literally hearing very ominous thunder in the dead of winter. I could pull a sockskins right now and stamp through the floor.
