I still feel like a young person, but of course I’m really middle-aged, and this middle-aged man found himself in the lingerie department of a large store looking for socks with grip: anti-slip socks.
It’s a bit uncomfortable being a fifty-year-old man surrounded by bras. I had the feeling that everyone was staring at me. I shouldn’t feel ashamed but you, too, would take a second glance if you spotted a short, stout, bald man on his own looking around the lingerie department.
In menswear departments you can always find socks near the underwear. Essential items are stocked together. That’s the great thing about menswear departments: when you’re looking at shirts, you’re sure to find ties nearby.
Ladies’ lingerie is part of fashion, but apparently ladies’ socks are not.
But why was Arnold looking for ladies’ anti-slip socks?
