Escapees

Photobucket
All since last week I start to believe there was a conspiracy underway. A plot to escape, make a Prison Break like Mike Scofield, on a show that realistically should have only lasted one season but I digress. I keep seeing clues, tips that the plot had passed the planning stage and was now well into the execution stage.

What I'm talking about is the great escape of the gloves. Give us us free!

Seriously since last week everywhere I go I keep seeing lone gloves in the snow or on a subway seat or on the stairs or just lying about somewhere and since I dont see Michael jackson anywhere in the glove vicinity I can only come to the conclusion that the gloves are escaping from human clutches. Its like the gloves have decided they fed up with protecting hands and they making a break for it this winter. Except only one fella like he can escape at a time and the other poor fella duz be left behind as the scapegoat to try to do the work of two men.

It reminds me of the great sock escape that occurs everytime I do laundry. I think that crew just get tired of my stinky feet and somewhere between the washer and dryer they make a break for it probably via some secret tunnel built into dryers that I am unaware of but whatever the case one leaves and I'm left with one sock which really isnt better than no sock at all unless unmatching socks suddenly becomes a new style. In which case I will a fashionista!

So I believe that some unsuspecting soul one day put the gloves in the sock drawer and that the gloves learn a new trick and drew inspiration from these wicked socks' quest and decided to use the same tactics to arrange their freedom. Some sort of operation 5 fingers in effect or something so.

Soon all we going have to be like little children and clip the gloves onto our jackets cause you never can tell when a courageous glove trooper will yell geronimo and make a break for it.

I personally blame this increase on glove escapees on the propaganda about glove martyrs receiving 20 new fingers to play with in glove heaven but whatever!

So I keeping a special eye out on my gloves to make sure they dont think to try nothing stupid this winter cause I watching them like a hawk. They aint getting away at all cause both my hands cold.

I know all about disappearing socks,since I arrived in Barbados I have lost loads of them. I haven't got a clue as to where they have went too. You have given me a few ideas as to where they could be!

Weird. I guess the winter cold is causing gloves to head south! LOL.

glove martyrs!!! lol

seriously, I have 1 glove in my purse because I only wore one to work yesterday because one is all I could find!

Will said...

well i think the whole thing is just shameful and individualistic... i mean really... those selfish gloves are just leaving their counterparts behind to face the bitterness of lone hand-warming!!! that's just criminal!!!

surely there's room on the underground glove railway for more than one glove at a time???

do you suppose the liberated gloves are working tirelessly to free their compatriots??? perhaps sending remittances and receiving tamarind balls in the post several times a year??? hmmm... i'm thinking of caribbean gloves here actually...

i'm rambling... goodbye... very very funny post...

I wondered what the deal was with all these lone gloves I was seeing. Perhaps they are forming an army.

Thanks for the smile
