So im in target with my list

Then it begins to get hard
Red pencils. Uh, red pencils? Uh...okay. Found em. Check.
Folders with 2 front pockets? Uh...glorified PeeChees? Uhm. Maybe. Check.
Book sock? What the hey (kids were with me) is a book sock.
Uhm...ma'am...do you know what is a book sock.
I dont know. Let me ask them.
She yells around the corner: does anyone know what is a book sock?
From around the corner comes a man my age. He is very proud he knows what he is talking about "I put 4 kids through h s. And now college...this is a book sock. You will need this one" ( he did a good job of picking out a girlie one for dd7)
Its a book cover? I adked baffled. "Why not use a paper bag"
"Its not ecologically friendly".
I look at his so. She looks at me. I say "its biodegradible".
She says " and you can draw on it"
"Yeah" I agree.
He says. Dunno. They use this now
Okay now I have a sock for a book. Do I have to buy it shoes, too?
