    Many years ago, a shoe salesman showed my sister that stretch socks
    are much more comfortable if you pinch the fabric at the end of the
    big toe, stretch it way out, and let it spring back before putting on
    your shoes.

    It wasn't until this morning that I generalized that to stretch
    tights. While sitting on the bed, I pinched the knees of my poyester
    tights, stretched them way out, let them spring back, and now the
    tights fit much better.

    I'm making the dump tour with two stops clipped off because of the
    plague. Luckily, Goodwill, where I can leave stuff on the doorstep,
    is the farthest out.

    Five whole miles, big whoop. But I can't go on a long ride anyway,
    because the places within reach are all scabbed over with housing
    developments and there are no bushes or cornfields.

    And cornfields have been much too dense to enter ever since fertilizer
    makers figured out how to innoculate corn. I doubt that it's done the
    same way Dad innoculated soybeans. I wonder whether BioProven is a
    black powder?
