Sammy's Special Sock Similes
Sammy’s Special Sock Similes are found on each product page on our store. Each product description includes a Sammy’s Special Sock Simile to describe the product by way of a unique simile that will help keep our products foremost in your mind and, hopefully, brighten your day even for just a bit.
Many of the similes are silly, some are serious, and others are just plain goofy. Just like the poem that is included in each order, the similes are not written by Samuel. They are written by me, Mark, Samuel’s father.
We hope you enjoy them.
A Poem with Every Order
Each order from SammySocks Etc. comes with a poem. Even though our poems may never win a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, we think (at least I, Mark, Samuel’s dad, thinks) that they are pretty great! Each order from SammySocks Etc. receives one of our poems. Hopefully, the poems will lift your spirits along with helping you enjoy our socks and/or shoe laces.
The poems are not written by Sammy. They are written mostly by me, Mark, Samuel’s dad. Some, the much better poems, are written by Samuel’s mom.
Each order from SammySocks Ect. receives a Sammy Saying. These are statements or comments that Samuel makes or has made. We think they show an insight into Samuel’s outlook on life. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
