C) Our Knitter and her DH say, "It's cold out there! And we'll have to walk thru the Park. Both ways. What are we, nuts?!" They go back to bed.

You've outdone yourself in this post! Go to the parade, enjoy the sights and sounds, carry the socks if you can't yet wear them. And just food for thought: Earth Day is April 22. Wouldn't GREEN socks be a good Earth Day statement?
