Protective clothing given out in hospitals can result in some anarchic fashion statements. Among these garments are socks that are open at both ends. I don't know if it actually qualifies as a sock at that point. I think the term "a tube of cloth" or "a forearm cover of some kind" would be nearer the description. However, this one most definitely went over my foot, its primary purpose to cover up some bandages, and add an extra layer between the atmosphere and my incision. The nurse tied this one off herself while I was on the exam table, and I was impressed with how easily she did it. The closure at the toe end attracted little attention to itself. Several hours later I found I had to retie it, and that my approach to closing off one end of a double-open-ended sock was akin to a podiatric version of a head-based fashion popular in some urban communities.
I'll keep working on it. But I don't see why this can't become a thing too, especially at rooftop parties. In fact I think I saw a few Parsons students already doing it, which means it's just a few steps away from being a thing on sale at J. Crew.
More drabs to come.
