I started wearing funny socks a few years ago. It was a huge change for me. I had been strictly black dress socks or white athletic socks. With one beige pair to go with the brown dress shoes I had. Now it was purple checkers, multi-colored stripes, polka dots, and even socks that looked like sneakers.
Something happens when you wear funny socks. Other people get in on the action. First they start commenting on the socks in general. Then asking to see the current pair. Then they start buying funny socks for you. On any occasion. As if to say, “I want to support your endeavor to bring some joy to the world.” In rare cases they start wearing funny socks themselves. Converts.
What if all conversion was that easy, and filled with joy?
