It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following prompt: Write a funny story involving socks.
My college roommates and I hardly ever agreed about music ... well, let's just say I hardly ever agreed with them on music. I was (and still am) an HUGE Rolling Stones fan, and many a night, we'd have a similar argument as to which band is the greatest rock band of all time.
This one particular evening, as I was boiling some noodles, my roommate "Mung," probably just trying to get under my skin, proclaimed that Nine Inch Nails is the best band of all time. This immediately threw me into a tizzy ... how could he possibly claim that a band that had only been around for a handful of years was better than a legendary band that, at the time was celebrating 30 years in the business?!?!?!?
We argued, screamed, yelled, and cursed each other ... and this went on and on until my noodles were done boiling. I proceeded to continue arguing as I strained the noodles ... unfortunately, I didn't strain them in the sink. In all of the commotion, I forgot what I was doing, and ending up straining the scalding hot water onto my feet! Now, thankfully, I had socks on, and I think this helped to keep the burning to a minimum.
The good news is that the argument ended pretty quickly after that ....
