|We <3 our new leggings|
But that is another story. So, given my love of all things JL and kit shaped, I was rather upset when I lost a long sleeve a few weeks back. (It was one of those nice sorta fleecy ones that are made of awesome). Now, this was a pretty well loved piece of kit (and by "well loved" I mean it had gone slightly bobbily in the washing machine and had bike oil stains on it :-s) so I was certain no one would want to steal it.
So I searched.
|Have you ever tried to get your hand in one of those kit holes? I almost took my arm off!|
|Because I've obviously misplaced it UNDER A ROCK|
|Gotta watch those squirrels. They're omnipresent and evil.|
|Shouting always helps. As does swearing.|
I make the exciting decision to empty the bin in my room. But lo? What is this in a sealed Tesco bag next to by bin, cunningly disguised as rubbish?
|You guessed it.|
In hindsight, I should have donated it to science or something:
|Eyes watering... must... keep... running.....|
|I burned the stick afterwards.|
|Me looking unintentionaly smug with my stupidity scar (looks better when I get a tan). That t shirt makes me happy too. It is impossible to not make this :-D face all the time while wearing it. I also own this for when I'm in not such a good mood. Slow pedestrians die when I wear that t shirt.|
|I reiterate. DON'T CYCLE IN THE FUCKING SNOW.|
BUT ANYWAY. The only piece of kit I've ever lost etc.
And it's not so much "lost" as "unobtainable", where "unobtainable" = at the bottom of the Thames in Henley. Because I *may* have crashed into the island during a pre-paddle at HWR and capsized. To be honest, I was too busy crying with relief that I hadn't lost my Oakleys to care about the long-sleeve very much. Oh, and I was also dying of embarassment at the time, obviously. I was fished out by a roaming 4+. The shame. THE SHAME! *represses memory* But anyway. I rejoiced that my prodigal long sleeve was now in a wearable state again and employed a minstrel to follow me round and tell everyone of the great deed.
|Sorry, I didn't know how else to end the post. This made more sense in my head.|
