Pills and Payback

Flashback to 1977.....
I am five and I am sitting on my twin bed, legs sticking straight out with knee high cable knit socks barely on my feet. My dad is trying to wrestle these socks onto me and I will not let such a travesty occur, why? Why, you ask?
BECAUSE THERE ARE PILLS ON MY SOCKS.
Now see me making my dad (who doesn't remember this now) pick ALL of the pills (that cable knit apparel tend have) off of my socks and being the kind yet confused father that he is, he is doing it.
Now up to the present, 2008:
I am wrestling socks onto my son, Jamie's, five year old feet. He is refusing, pitching an exorcist tantrum. Why?
BECAUSE THE SEAMS FEEL FUNNY ON HIS TOES.
Ladies and gentlemen....this is what we call payback time.
Oh joy.
