Things that make you go ... HUH????

When you have adult children, there are some ... ahem ... things that you don't want to know.

Like I really don't want to know about my boys' sex lives. I mean I REALLY don't.

It's all better left to the imagination. Or not to be thought about at all.

When you LIVE with adult children, there are things you don't want to find in your laundry basket.

Like ... what the heck is THIS???

Let's get a little closer:

Ok, starting to get a little weirded out. What IS that?

Uh. WHAT???

So. Um. Yeah. Well.

I know what that LOOKED like ... and I wasn't sure I wanted to be touching it. So I approached Z-man's room tentatively.

"Is this yours?" I asked.

"NO!" he said loudly. "EW. What are you saying? God, please go away. No that is NOT mine."

"You know what it looks like, right? You're sure it's not yours?"

"NO NO NO NO NO. Gross."

So I walked away, less sure what I was holding in my hand.

And, as a shot in the dark, I walked to the Roo-girl's room.

"Um," I said hesitantly. "Is this yours?"

"Yeah," she said immediately.


"It's my sock!"

Ohhhhhhh... yeah, now I see ... it's one of a pair. Like this:

Whew. I feel so much better.

I think.

Wow! I was wondering... and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to find that in the laundry basket, and I know I wouldn't have touched it. :)

Weirdest. Sock. EVER.

That is the STRANGEST sock I've ever seen. With Roo's permission, will you post a picture of what outfit/shoes you would wear such socks with? Because I thought I was pretty in touch with fashion until I saw those, lol. Now I just feel...old.

ROFLMAO! Whoa! That is a crazy sock. I think my mind would have went the same place yours did, and...ew. I may have dropped it and run screaming from the laundry room. Yes, there are some things we don't want to know as our kids get older. Danny is still scarred from the time he was walking through the laundry room and admired the underwear I'd just piled on the folding table. "Someone got some sexy new underwear," he observed, waggling his eyebrows at me. My reply? "Those are your daughter's." Yeah, he dropped those about like I would have that sock and hightailed it out of there. Hours later he was still muttering under his breath, "Wrong, just wrong."

I'm laughing my butt off. I thought the same thing you did and ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

LceeL said...

So. Did she ask you what you THOUGHT it was?

Better yet ... did you TELL her?

OMG!!! I had to finally delurk, I am crying I am laughing so hard!!
I would have thought exactly the same thing - I have never seen a sock like that... and I can totally relate - I have 3 sons (ages 25, 23, 21) followed by a daughter (age 19) (yup, ALL at home at the moment!!) - the only thing worse than finding my daughter's thongs mixed into my laundry is when one of the boys find them in their laundry...

I would have NEVER in a MILLION years have thought it was a sock! I remember when my girls first started wearing thongs. They were terrified to let me know and washed them out by hand in the lavatory and laid them on the carpet to dry on the other side of their bed. I came *this* close to vacuuming them up countless times.

Bwaaaaaa haaaaa haaaaaa!

When RooGirl said yes, my keyboard wore a layer of Pepsi Max.

It is not happy.

I have never laughed so hard in my life. Thanks for this post.

And no - I have NEVER seen a sock like that before.

Rachel said...
