It is beyond the pale that, in my forties, I still regularly manage to hook a toe in the waistband of my pants when putting them on and nearly brain myself by falling over.
How can this be? Why have I not gradually learned to do this simple task better? Even allowing for childhood and sock-free days, you'd have to imagine I must have done it over 10,000 times.
Some of you may be saying "Ho, Bazza, why don't you just put your socks on first, instantly reducing the chance of toe hookage to an insignificant risk?". To you I say:
Away with you Satan! Do not try to turn me from the righteous path of pants-first-then-socks with your beguiling yet heretical words.
Also, do you think there's any chance the mention of socks will bring Kurzon back? Or do I have to mention them 7 times while in front of a mirror or something?
