A Sock Wars Followup

...And in posting my pair of Detonator socks this morning, I was met by a severe lack of humour on the part of Australia Post. The lady behind the counter was very unsure about whether I could have the words "War" and/or "Detonator" on the outside of my parcel and pretty much insisted they be blanked out. Understand that the parcel was open so she could see the socks, feel them if she wanted to in fact. I scribbled the offending words off but am unsure now whether the parcel will actually go anyway.

Liberty, bless her, responded to my "Bang Bang you're dead!" e-mail with an air of resignation. She asked whether she should continue knitting or just send me the socks. Given that I don't know whether I shall be alive when she gets my socks, I told her to keep going. I now live in fear of the postman!!!


To be continued.......

Didn't ask and you can't really see her face that well but she was being a bit of an ass I think

Ooooo, you're such a terrorsockist. How many major US buildings do you plan to blow up with those lovely soft socks? I've said to much HIDE Australia Post might be watching.

Damn, I use 'to' instead of 'too'. I get jittery if I see myself using bad grammar. Teach me for reading blogs at 1am.
