OMG! January is National Braille Literacy Month. It’s also Bath Safety Month, and I was gifted, at Christmas, with a pair of those gripper socks; you know the ones that have the little gripper things on the soles to make them less slippery on tile floors… I passed them on to a friend who always goes to the spa. She’s married with four kids, and says she lives for those spa days. And, I told her I was gifting her with the socks in honor of Bath Safety Month.
Her husband is blind from a war injury. The other night she called me up and was laughing so hard I could barely understand what she was saying. She hung up and called me back once she got control of herself. She said, “Harry and I were having a romantic candlelight picnic in front of the fireplace, and I was wearing those gripper socks you gave me. He started rubbing my feet, and all of a sudden changed course, rolled up my pajama pant leg and started licking my calf.” She said, ” I didn’t know what the heck he was trying to do. I jerked my leg away, and he started laughing like crazy.” I asked her, “why was he laughing?” She said, “He decided that in honor of Braille Literacy Month, he’d play a prank on me. He told me that my sock told him to be a more daring lover and surprise me.” I’m still giggling. I think they are too.
