Sock Block

Elder and Younger Sons have been into this on-line game called Minecraft all summer.
So, when I stumbled across Minecraft socks, I had to tell them.  They listened intently (which is quite unusual for boys their age) while I described the green creeper sock, the pink pig sock, and the Minecraft landscape sock.
But it wasn't until I casually remarked that the three sock set came in a square Minecraft dirt block with a grass lid that I got any reaction.

"Screw the socks," muttered Elder Son.  "I just want the box!"

Isn't it always the same?
You buy them nice things, and they play with the box.

We live parallel lives. My boys totally got into Minecraft this summer. I'll have to tell them about the socks...

Bou: Ask your boys if they've ever tried sleeping in the Nethers.

Heh, heh, heh...
