BRID Hey honey, do you want more wool socks?
BRID How many?
NTS Four. Why? Is today sock-buying day?
BRID You betcha. Do you want to pick them out?
NTS Not really. Black ones.
BRID What about these stripey ones? They have lots of cushioning, and they’re striped.
NTS No thanks.
BRID Wouldn’t you like me to get you one green pair? So you own one pair of socks that’s not black or white?
NTS Not really.
BRID Hm, not brown, you couldn’t wear them to work with your black suit. How about charcoal? Is charcoal okay?
NTS Charcoal is okay.
BRID reads aloud from page. “Reviewed by Wife of a happy man from Riverton, WY. ‘I bought these for my husband and he really LIKES these socks. Sometimes getting guys to say much about something can be a chore, so the fact that he liked them well enough to say something, is something.'” Well, that about sums it up. These are clearly the socks for you.
Apparently this is a universal husband-wife conversation. Honestly, the fact that NTS said ‘yes’ so quickly when I asked if he wanted wool socks was more of an encomium than I expected to get. I’m interpolating to mean that buying him wool socks is the best present ever, and will continue to do so at every opportunity. Wool socks are a great present. Dumbledore always knows best.
