Don'tcha Hate It When

Don't you hate it when the weather is miserable all weekend and then glorious on Monday?

When you realize halfway to work that you missed several large patches of hair on your legs?

When, a minute later, you also realize that your sweatshirt is covered in dog hair and kind of smells funny?

When you get to work and realize that you have either mud or dog poop on your shoes?

When you show up for your weekly staff meeting completely unprepared?

When you realize that what you want to do in an evening and what you have time to do are two very different things?

When you have exciting news and you have to keep it quiet?

When you are ready to go but you can't leave yet?

When you step out of your car at the gas station and a gust of wind blows a waterfall off of the covering and onto your head?

When you can't sit still but you have no place to go?

When you have the DVDs to return to the store sitting in your car but forget to stop every time you pass the store?

When you eat your afternoon snack too early and are snacky again with an hour left to go at work?

Yeah, missing hair on the legs when shaving is embarassing for me, too...

Oh, you mean not telling the folks at work about Wisconsin.

B---Exactly.

Mike---So I get why swimmers shave their legs. Is it the same for bikers? Because most of your pictures show the guys in full-length spandex, which would seem to negate the need for the shaving.

Ok, here we go. The pics of the full olength stuff is from either cold days or prologue time trials, where the suits are more aerodynamic than bare skin. Also depends on the temperature, etc. We shave our legs for a few reasons. It's cooler. When we crash, it's easier to dress the wound and clean it without hair, thus helping to prevent infection. And when we crash, we slide on the road. Think of having your hair pulled out at the roots, as opposed to your skin being burned/ground off. It actually prevents a deeper wound because there's no hair to pull out. Besides, we think it looks cool, lol.

I'm a girl. So I do this all summer long. It's called waxing. I also have it done on my brows throughout the year (and am currently much overdue).

Men are such wimps. ;-)

Lost, you've seen them...

Lisa, take a belt sander and while it's on, put it against your leg, then against an unshaven leg, see which hurts more. They'll both hurt, but one will look and feel better than the other...
Yes, we are wimps in some things.

ooh, snap! :) Although I do think Mike suffers more than the average man as most don't shave their legs on a regular basis.
