You kids today. Why, when I was your age we had these things called stores. And we had to travel to the stores on our own dime, they never came to us. Except for the Sears catalog, which had its charms though mail order could be … limited. And we liked it that way.
Now it seems we’re prohibited by law from buying in stores things that are freely available online. Must be an improvement – it’s modern.
Of course when it comes to buying things you’re going to wear on your body, mail-order hasn’t changed that much – it’s almost guaranteed not to fit. So I’ve* discovered an online source of amputee supplies I really have no excuse for not knowing about all along, have actually purchased a single stump sock and a single nylon sheath from it, and when they arrive – at least two weeks from now – I’ll be able to adjust my order if necessary and make a bigger bulk buy. There will be whole, untorn, non-threadbare stumpsocks this summer!
*And by “I,” I mean Landlady.
