Sausages, Socks And Scissors.

When I woke up this morning I debated with myself whether to have a sausage sandwich for breakfast. In the end I decided not to have a sausage sandwich. Instead I had sausages and fried tomatoes with two slices of bread and butter. Which, if you think about it is quite like a sausage sandwich but with the added ingredient of fried tomatoes.

Sometimes, when I am struggling to put my socks on in the morning as was the case this morning, I find myself wishing I had longer arms or shorter legs. I don’t wish too fervently about having shorter legs because my legs are already short and any shorter would not be in proportion. Mostly I am quite pleased with my body proportions because I am well-proportioned as it is. I have now decided that I don’t think long arms would suit me either. This decision is also based on proportionality. When the warmer weather arrives, I shall seriously consider not wearing socks at all.

This afternoon I spent some time with a pair of sharp scissors cutting the end of my beard into a pointed shape. The result, though I say it myself is pleasing to the eye. Well, my eye anyway. Both my eyes in fact. Even the eye that was often described as a lazy eye when I was a child. It wasn’t a lazy eye at all. What people didn’t realise at the time was that I liked to rest that particular eye a lot when it wasn’t necessary to use both eyes at once.


  1. Your breakfast sounds good. I love fried tomatoes. I hate wearing socks but I have to... doctor's orders. I'm not sure about your pointy beard. I am having trouble visualizing it.

  2. Please don't give up putting socks on in the summer because when the Winter comes you'll find you've lost your bendyness and won't be able to get them on at all. lol

  3. Don't worry, there are gadgets to help put on socks. It can be done without bending... oh the miracles of science. Off to cook lunch now my taste buds are working. Thanks for that, John!

  4. You need a Stretch Armstrong body- then you could temporarily lengthen any necessary body part.
