Today was a good day. I completed the trifecta: Scoops, Ups, AND Jorts!
If you have no idea what I’m taking about, let me back up for a moment. This particular subset of the apparel world was brought to my attention by my friend Josh Zobel, who writes a HILARIOUS blog, “Don’t Be Rough” (wrote? This thing hasn’t been updated since Brit Brit’s alchy-hol problem was big news) Thanks to Josh, here are a few new words for your Lexicon:
Scoops: “Scoops are simply white shoes. Usually ultra white tennis shoes with minimal color if any at all. Scoops are not limited to only tennis shoes but the best ones can be found with dark colored jeans. If you are lucky enough you will spot them with jean shorts*.”Ups: “Ups are nothing more than socks that are pulled up high.
This isn’t a great example, but when combined with the power of Scoops and shorts they are almost unstoppable. See the line on the floor there? That man has just crossed it and he doesn’t give a dang.”
Jorts*: Jean Shorts = Jorts. Just in case you grew up under a rock.
I encourage you to read the entire Scoops and Ups post by Josh by clicking here. (and while you’re at it, read everything else he wrote. The man is a comic genius. Then send him hate mail until he starts writing again. Thanks.)
For a while, whenever I saw Scoops and/or Ups, I would snap a photo and send it on to ol’ Josh. I thought my fascination had died… until today when I witnessed THIS at the Syracuse airport:
Thank you, New York. Just…thank you.
