seersock

I’d be lying if I said that this comment left by Ole E Cross in response to my post this weekend didn’t kind of freak me out.

That’s no beer cozy, that’s a seersock! By holding the sock aloft in the autumn sun, a shadow is cast on your heart that reveals your true, inner nature.

The seersock clearly cast the shadow of a raven perched on MM’s chest.

According to mythology, the Raven “is a creature of need, of want, of greed and gluttony, and can also demonstrate a possessive and jealous nature, but from that need and want, from the satisfaction of that appetite, great acts of creativity arise.”

I know, it’s downright creepy how accuracte those stinkin’ socks are.

I shit you not… As I’m typing this, Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” just started playing on the radio. Ravens really freak me out.

Please tell me there’s no such fucking thing as a “seersock” that can reveal one’s true inner nature. (If there really is such a thing, you can bet your ass that I’m going to hunt down Ole E Cross and subject him to it.)

    I don’t know about the seersock (methinks your leg (foot?) is being pulled) but ravens are cool! I used to loathe them when I’d see them by the side of the road, scavenging on roadkill. I started to read and see more things about them that made me realize what amazing creatures they really are. Now I have the utmost respect for their intelligence and cleverness. It’s really funny that I had my own raven experiences this past weekend. I was attending a local weekend meditation retreat and both mornings as I was driving to the place, a big beautiful raven crossed my path, sort of a good sign I felt. Here’s something really neat you should check out.

    Play the movie on the bottom of the page and you’ll see what I mean about ravens.

    Hah! I’m sure your leg is being pulled. If for no other reason than how many variations of a shadow can you get by holding up a sock? Did a Google search of “seersock” help ease your mind?

    This was a good one: “Quote: Originally posted by seer. What do you have against sock-puppets?”

    Seriously. Sock-puppets are the bomb. Which is why they are no longer allowed on airplanes in sizes larger than finger puppets and quantities greater than two.

    Sorry to say, but the seersock is as real as a North Korean nuclear blast. As far as tracking me down, I faced my demons long ago.

    I held sock the to the sun exactly five years past and the shadow it cast on my breast was unmistakably that of … a tubesock.
