Jive walkin'

Today's post, celebrating all things socked and stripey, is at Toxophily.

ObKidAnecdotes: When you have an autistic boy obsessed with The Price Is Right and constantly setting up pricing games for us, you frequently hear sentences like the following, an actual example from earlier today which was delivered with full Barker panache:
"The Golden Road today begins with this can of blackeyed peas."
On the other hand, when you have a little girl like ours, you are liable to have your grilled ham and cheese sandwich praised as follows. Imagine a cardinal delivering his solem verdict on a confirmed miracle, palms facing upward and arms extended on the table in a prayerful attitude -- or a Cannes jury member expressing quiet wonder at an unexpected masterpiece:
"This ... is ... the perfect ... sandwich."
