The Great Sock Story 

Seeing as it’s Friday  ….have I ever told you The Sock Story ?…. Two rather lonely and quarrelsome socks sat around a fire in out of the rain …Both a bit worse for wear and grumpy both wanted to tell their story ….The great Sock Story about two  rather lonely and quarrelsome  socks  who sat in out of the rain around a fire …Each one tired and weary  …Well they both wanted to tell their story ..which of course was the now infamous great sock story …this was a story about two really spiteful quarrelsome  lonely socks who found themselves caught in a storm on a dark wild night  having found shelter they lit a fire and dried themselves off when they were ready they both stood up because they wanted to tell of a great epic tale The Great Sock story each sock was sure that their version was better and so the night extended all the way til dawn …all that could be heard that night was the  owls hooting  foxes barking wolves howling wind roaring rain beating on bark ..cattle stirring ..rivers gushing  and of course the noise of thise two rather lonely quarrelsome socks fighting over who should tell the tale of the two lonely quarrelsome socks trying tell The great sock story, one of greatest stories a sock could tell if they ever got round to telling it .In truth what they and many socks like them didn’t realise The Great Sock  Story was the greatest story that was never told  and the more it never got  told the greater the story became  and so if you ever come across two socks  in a woods on a dark wet windy night and you invite yourself to their fire,  if they offer to tell you a great story but disagree who should tell it, be careful not to intervene as this is a story that should never get told and rest assured it will be  a long night without sleep but what a story you can tell, of the night two lonely and quarrelsome socks sat with you around a fire and offered to tell you the greatest story never to be told!!!!!! …

……addendum:  of course in its full original Latin  version it has a bit more drama …
