The Sock – #KeepYourSockOn
They were laughing. He liked to talk to her about paragliding because she always had those fantastic ideas coming from nowhere. He was presenting her their new pod harness and was kind of hoping secretly that she would help to name it.
She was looking at him. He was so passionate when he talked about paragliding. His eyes were shining and she knew that he was kind of looking for her approval.
– “This harness is so comfy, it is tight everywhere, it makes me think of a climbing shoe!” He said.
– “Come on!” she interrupted him: “You cannot talk about a climbing shoe to present something as comfortable!
– “And why not?”
-“Because when I think of climbing shoes”, she made a face, “I only see painful toes, that’s why!”
He scratched his head, he looked a bit disappointed. For him, the image of the climbing shoe stuck well to the product: stiff and comfortable, and above all so precise! Yet he suddenly had this terrible vision of his feet after a multi-pitch route. She was damned right.
She could feel he was annoyed. He was thinking while looking at his feet. She noticed he was wearing mismatched socks. One was covered by bright limes, the other was blue with fluffy clouds. She looked at her socks. They were decorated with red strawberries.
She had an idea but decided to create a diversion. She kissed him and said with her sexy French accent: you can keep your socks on…
