Saturday, Supermodel and I ran 11 miles on trails. We're fortunate that the summer heat hasn't arrived in Utah [I hate to jinx the weather by typing it outloud - shhhh] so our run was pleasant.
We discuss many topics while running, especially on endurance runs. During our sharing time Saturday, we discovered that we both had lost our one good pair of trail socks. The pair of bamboo and wool, so-ugly-they're-cute socks that we purchased at the same time. Supermodel chose the ugly shit-brown pair. I chose the ugly charcoal-grey pair. We figured our husbands smuggled the socks into their drawers because they looked so manly and ugly... and cool.
Sure enough, we intersected with Supermodel's husband around mile nine. He was riding his mountain bike and...wearing her socks.
I had already accused Chris [my husband] of sneaking my socks into his drawer and in a dramatic show reminiscent of O.J., wide-eyed, fumbling with the gloves, Chris defensively rifled through his underwear and socks, proving to me that he hadn't taken my so-ugly-they're-cute socks. I didn't believe him. I didn't believe O.J. either.
Saturday, late afternoon, I decided to find my socks. They were in Toddler Child's sock drawer. He's three. He's too young to appreciate cool socks, so I blame Chris for accidentally putting my socks in the wrong drawer.
Guess what Supermodel and I are getting our husbands for Father's Day this year?
