A Tree Grows In Brooklyn

I just finished reading one of the most wonderful books! A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, by Betty Smith.
Sometimes when I am reading an enjoyable book, I find myself rushing through it, almost gobbling up the pages. With this book, I found myself reading slowly and carefully, savoring every wonderful word of each poignant page. Often I would lose myself in the book and, hours later, realize that I had read into the early hours of the morning.
Sometimes when I would close the book for the evening, I would just lie in bed holding the book to my chest, smiling, reflecting on what I had read, enjoying the feelings of deep satisfaction and gratitude that come from reading such a fine book.
There are several books which I consider "required reading for all of humanity," and A Tree Grows In Brooklyn is unquestionably on this list. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy. Reading this book will make you a better person, and give you a greater appreciation for life; but don't take my word for it...

Sexy Legs!

Yesterday I received an anxiously awaited package in the mail. A package that will aid me in my quest for sexy legs. You might be thinking that I am referring to a par of sexy female legs, with an equally sexy woman attached...but you would be wrong. Don't get any funny ideas; I like girls, and I like them all in one piece, but in this case, the legs I am referring to are my own. That's right, you heard me!

Like many men, for most of my life I have been afflicted with an age-old problem. Actually it isn't age-old, just sock-old...that is to say, a problem as old as socks. How old are socks? I have no idea. I suppose if you were really interested you could do a search for "history of socks." I just did and it took me to an amazing website, but I'm too lazy right now to delve into such a vast realm of academia.
Anyway, the problem: falling down socks. The solution: SOCK GARTERS!

Sexy! Right? Ok, I do admit that they look a little stupid without pants on, but that's fine with me because long socks should always be worn with long pants, and I always wear pants in public...well, most of the time. Anyway, just check out my amazingly sexy legs with perfectly adjusted socks after having worn them all day!

I took these babies for a test run on Sunday, needless to say I am impressed. Seriously it is like a miracle! I wore my socks all day(10 hours) and never had to adjust them once! I am extremely pleased with my purchase. They were well worth the twelve or so dollars they cost me on ebay.

I will admit that it felt good to take them off at the end of the day. The elastics do start to get uncomfortable after so many hours, but it is a small price to pay for having perfectly adjusted socks all day long. "If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up."
