“Ugh, my socks are a mess!” I groaned, looking at these wet socks of mine. This is the situation you will meet if you tip-toeing in a bathroom to pee. A squatting pan, on top of that.

“Want to lend a pair of mine?” he asked, looking through his wardrobe.

“Sure, but I want the black one. I still want it to match with my shoes.”

“Hmmm…” as his hands looking through the wardrobe, “I can’t find any black socks. How about blue?” he asked.

“Sure,” I answered as he threw the socks, landing a pair of small blue ankle socks, the kind of typical socks that you can find for only Rp1.000 at Shopee. Or Rp99, if you are lucky.

Oh, I forgot to ask the most important thing.

“What if I can’t give it back to you?” while knowing fully well that I will not meet this person in front of me anymore.

“That’s okay. It’s only a pair of socks, anyway,” he answered, nonchalantly.

Written on March 23, 2021. Looking through my wardrobe, only to find these blue socks are still sitting well there. Happy 1st anniversary, blue socks!
