Another Single…

Welcome folks to Nicole’s Sexy Single bar. A new sock just walked in the door – lets inteview her, shall we?

N: Hello there, how are you?

Sarah: Great! Cruising the path of life ya know? I just got back from whitewater rafting in Colorado and I’m still on an adrenaline kick.

N: Wow, what an amazing attitude you have! What brings you into the bar?

S: Hoping for some fun. I’m not really wanting anything to serious – just someone to go on adventures with me. The ideal person would have a great dye job (like myself) and be just as speedy and high energy as I am.

N: What kind of advantages do you think you have to these other folks here in the bar, still waiting for a partner to be finished for them? You are the rookie after all.

S: Look at my curves. Who can resist that? I have such an interesting texture and pattern without being too dificult. It’s the perfect mix!

And my coloring – would you look at that. Perfect for fall hikes to look at the leaves changing. I’ve got everything – plus, I’m not clingy, needy or demanding – I just want something casual – like myself.

N: You do indeed have incredible coloring. There’s some pooling on the foot and ankle, but the way the colors distributed on your heel is simply incredible. That’s the way hand-dyes should always look, in my humble opinion.

S: I agree – I’m always sticking my heel out to show it off – I just know that’ll pay off. I expect some hot action soon.

N: It’s true, I don’t know how anyone would resist. Hands down, you are definetly the hottest sock in this bar. I can’t wait to see how things go for you. Be sure to let me know the details. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten any “finished pairs” action (the Embossed Leaves socks where a bit prudish and didn’t share the lurid details).

    Lovely!! The singles bar is a kick – I tried to tell someone down at the LYS about it but they just gave me a strange look. Ah well.
