On the surface, Sophia Dell looks calm and ready, but if you scratched the surface she’s far from it.
As she walks, Sophia’s
Sophia is now faced with a decision; does she stop and fix it? Or, does she keep walking and sacrifice her sockette to her hungry shoe?
The Advocate met with Sophia shortly after she decided on the latter. Sitting on a scat brick wall, she explains to our reporter how the anxiety and stress just became too much for her.
“I just couldn’t deal.”
“I can’t explain it, it’s so harmless yet it is one of the most annoying and uncomfortable feelings in the world.”
Realising her first world problem, Sophia corrected herself.
“Well, maybe not the whole world, but in my immediate life it’s the worst.”
“How can I walk along pretending nothing is going on when in actual fact WW3 is breaking out in my shoe?”
While this may seem like a fairly niche issue, it’s understood that this is a common occurrence amongst ankle sock or sockette wearers, with a staggering 82% of people revealing that this happens to them upwards of 5 times a month.
When questioned about why she doesn’t just wear slightly higher socks, Sophia gave our reporter the stink eye and said, she’d rather have her shoe eat her sock than have socks showing out of her shoes.
More to come.
