The White Blizzard

Well, it's that time of year again, where I will scar young children for life, give elderly people heart attacks and send everyone else running the other way. Yes, it's time to dawn my shorts. Now it's not that I don't have somewhat shapely legs or that I have scars or unsightly veins, no, no, I have something much much worse! My legs are blizzard white, yes, yes, I know they have tanning beds, I know there are self tanning oils/lotions, etc. etc.. However I have found that with the self tanning lotions/oils that it always looks "orange"...at least on me... The tanning bed wrinkles my "young" (quit laughing) body. So, I subject everyone to my blizzard white legs... after their retina's recover, they get over it... and quite frankly, I'm waaaaay more comfortable...so if you think you saw a blizzard walk by you in the summertime...it's just me.... in. shorts.

I'm just incredibly jealous you get to wear shorts. It has been so rainy and cold here. Enjoy your trip! I'll keep my fingers crossed that the hounds from hell can behave themselves while you're gone.

I felt the same way about 2 months ago when I first put my shorts on for the season. But sitting outside at all those lacrosse games has given me a little color--not so scary now.
