Keeping Warm – Gargleblaster Microstories #252

Young Samantha had learned about layering clothes. It was bitterly cold outside.

George called, “My socks are gone!”

Haley answered, “I’m missing Samantha’s mittens too.”

“All five pairs missing?” muttered George.

“Honey? Samantha doesn’t need mittens.”

“Why not?”

“I found your socks.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Great twist on the motherly over-dressing of youngsters. I love that Samantha figured it out on her own.

  8. I loved this so much! My 2.5 year old always wears her socks on her hands and calls them ‘hand socks” πŸ™‚

      Yep. I did it too when I was little (and it was -35 below with the wind chill). Sledding is fun so long as you’re warm. πŸ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed this. Thanks much! πŸ™‚

  11. Young Samantha looks very warm and comfortable. That’s pretty much how i look when it gets too cold. Anything under 50Β° will have me bundled up for premier warmth. Congrats on your win.
