Truth and Consequences

What better way to introduce a new category than a wee bit of whimsy? I don't have the clothing*, but I'm all about the bicycle body (my mom actually commented on the weird tan lines on my hands), and it's only a matter of time before the whole car/bike thing comes true, at least with the Cruiser. As far as courting, I guess I should count myself lucky I already had a mate before I went bike crazy. Even then I'm a lucky bastard, since Ellen treats my latest obsession more with bemusement than anything else. At least until the checkbook comes out.

Then again, at least my latest obsession doesn't require anything remotely related to "pinkies". *SHUDDER*

* Perhaps the only bike-related thing that can be given as a gift without risk of me buying it for myself. No, that's not a suggestion, it's a comment. For me, fashion is something that happens to other people, even when it has a vaguely functional aspect. You should see what I wear to work. And the first person who gets me a leg razor for a gift? Dead I tell you. Dead!

It's not so much the leg razor as a toe razor that's needed. However, that aside - I can second the fashion thing - wearing black pants and navy socks isn't considered good fashion. Just because they're both dark doesn't make it acceptable.


Of course, and to be fair, this is coming from someone who thinks Hawaiian shirts are the height of fashion - especially the damn bright ones...

Like I said before, just convince her that the accessories you need can be incorporated into a belly dance costume. You'd have no problem buying them then (though you may find them disappearing at inconvenient times).

Seriously, though, it's great when couples can respect each other's crazy hobbies, instead of seeing them as grounds for divorce.
