Barefoot and not pregnant

It was another rainy commute in this morning. Overall, it was a pleasant ride. The rain essentially stopped about halfway in so I was able to take of the rain cape which was mucho appreciated because I was getting overheated. Unfortunately, I had my socks for work in one of my jersey pockets (I forgot to pack them on Monday) and in the process of riding the rest of the way in, they got enough road spray on them that they are now soaked. Damn! I’m now friggin walking around the office in bare feet. Pretty professional don’t you think?

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I got my first tick of the season riding home Monday afternoon. Yippee! I just love them cute little suckers. I guess this cements my decision to shave the legs this summer. I had been undecided whether to do it or not but if the ticks are going to be out in force this summer (as I've heard they are going to be), the legs need to be shaved. I've found that when I do shave it decreases my tick catch significantly. Plus it makes it easier to apply the bug dope if I don't have a rain forest on my legs. Looks super sexy too, I know the redneck chicks around here dig it...

The only reason I shave is for the redneck chicks. The one's that look at them and say "you probably shave your legs more than I do"... To which I reply "yeah, you're probably right, and from the looks of it I shave my face more than you too". Then of course I run like hell.

Later.

shaved legs repels ticks? interesting, hadn't heard that... i don't shave just 'cause everyone else does. how's that for lame?

just threw-away the second half (ok, more like a 1/4) of what was probably a 500 calorie cookie bar reading your post on weight. if only i could stop drinking beer... yeah, right!

doesn't repel ticks but doesn't catch as many. the hair on my legs is like a strainer, catching any tick within striking distance.

eeeeew no shave?? The hair is like a hiding place for those little blood sucking bastards.
