End of an era

Today, we reach the end of an era. Today, we're witness to the passing on of the original fun fencing socks.

Aren't they lovely? They were the first fun fencing socks I bought, oh so many years ago. To this day, they are still the most fun fencing socks I've ever found. Just because I don't fence anymore doesn't mean I didn't wear them either. They were a hit when I presided last year, and are among the few thin socks I own that will fit in my good flat shoes, which I'm wearing full-time due to my sprained toe.

But this morning, as I put them on, I heard a noise. It was the noise of old, tired elastic, saying "Goodbye, world, the time has come for us to move on." You're all making that noise in your heads, I know it.


So I am spending one more bittersweet day with my beloved socks, and then I shall bid them farewell. I will never find their like again (and I've been looking for years!).
