More jerseys than dress shirts...

I wonder what this says about my priorities in life? I was upacking the summer jerseys and putting away the really heavy riding gear. As I was hanging the jerseys in my closet I noticed that I have more cycing jerseys than dress shirts. Is this becoming an obsession? I can't wait until the work day is over and I can ride. When I can't ride I'm either adjusting or lubricating something on the bike or reading a cycling magazine. Are there 12 step programs for this, and do I need one? I don't feel out of control, but.... I just don't know. More jerseys and dress shirts...

Hmmmmm. I went to 2 weddings and a funeral last year, yet I own at least a dozen dress shirts. I peddled 200+ days last year and I own 5 (servicable) jerseys. I need to get my priorities straight and spend fewer days wearing nipple chewing t-shirts.

Sorry guys, I'm a slacker. I only have three jerseys. But I made a New Years resolution to buy more. On the other hand, I've added more bikes to my stable!
