A Goal, for the Rest of You

Because if this happened to me, I'd get much worse than just dirty looks:

Hours and hours and miles and miles of training pay off!!!

At a neighborhood party last evening, I was chatting with the mother of my daughter's best friend -- an alarmingly attractive woman that sometimes makes grown men sigh when she walks into a room. She glanced down at my legs, stopped what she was saying in mid sentence, and asked, "Do you mind if I touch your legs?"...

Actually, I'd fear more for the lady... I already know what'd happen to me. To wit: "Do you think it would be possible to cast cement shoes with a shoebox?"

Me: "Why?"

Ellen: "No reason, just wondering..."

To answer Ellen, not really. Not only would the mass and moisture of cement split a shoebox like a wet paper bag, but unless it's a box for clown shoes, the final mold would be far too small to properly weigh down the wearer. A physically fit biker like Scott would still be able to swim, albiet with some difficulty, and possibly even split the "shoes" through leg action alone.

On the plus side, a fair-sized plastic storage container, like those Rubbermaid ones available at Wal-Mart, would not only be adequate, but also cheap enough to be disposed of with the victim, and often come with convenient carrying handles.
