i went up to the sales rep and asked her how stretchy those socks were. the conversation went a little something like this:
her: what shoe size does he wear?
me: ... i don't know...
her: how old is he?
me: ....... uh.......... 10.
her: well these will fit him for sure. in fact, they prob fit me!
me: what shoe size are you?
me: okay, perfect (i'm a size 7.5)
as i was buying my socks
jen: oh you got some socks!
me: yes. for my nephew who is 10...
jen: * confused *
