Holes and socks

An update to my Oct 5th post about the Bosnian custom of removing your shoes before entering a house, and the traumas this causes me, someone who is pathologically incapable of finding matching socks. I heard the best excuse for not coming into someones house the other day: on being invited in, the Bosnian in question hung back, and then said,

"I'm sorry, I can't, I'm wearing bad socks."
