I was recently googling “adult knit body sock”. Lay off. People have googled worse things. Exactly why I was looking this up is another story. I’m not writing to delve into my weird googling habits. The issue is what I found.
The Instructables, a social networking site dedicated to crafty D.I.Yers introduces the world to the Laptop Compubody Sock—the solution to nosy airplane seatmates and unwanted distractions, thanks to crafty contributor, bekathwia — a self-proclaimed robot from Brooklyn.
The truth is, it’s Sunday night, it’s been a long weekend, and I’m exhausted. I’ve been racking my brain trying to put into words all that’s wrong with this, but then, on second thought, something about it excites me too much to hate on it– like the snuggie or the shake weight (wink wink).
It’s so ridiculous, so obscene, that I love it. I kind of wish that I was wearing one right now. But instead, I’m sitting on the couch next to my fiancé with my earbuds in listening to “Handlebars” by the Flobots on repeat trying to create some rhythmic peace and block out his random shenanigans and some TV show called The League (which appears to cast average-looking men with supermodel wives straight from a Miller Lite commercial). Is the Laptop Compubody Sock the solution to my plight?
I’m not much of a D.I.Yer but, hey bekathwia, think you can make me one of these in blue and green? And while you’re at it, you seem pretty talented; you should consider making adult knit body socks too. I’m keeping my eye out for one, and surprisingly the market seems to be untapped.
