Winter argyle

Winter is a time for argyle. Lynn's postcard made me think of a taxi ad that I saw in San Francisco last month on my way to the airport. The ad showed women and men in brightly colored, knee-high, argyle socks. Men wore them while skate-boarding and playing sports and the women were posing sexily with basically only socks on (making me me think that it is probably the absence of other clothes not the socks that were sexy). The ads made it seem as though argyle socks were the newest, hottest thing one could imagine. This made me laugh as it is a bit like trying to convince everyone that earmuffs will change your life.

Argyle on winter postcards, however, now that is a different story.
