Taking OCP to the next level...

DD and I rode around downtown this afternoon. At one point, my parents called my cell phone, so I stopped to take the call. DD decided to snap my picture, and when I handed her the phone, I got hers.

It wasn't until I uploaded to the computer that I realized how "OCP" we were -- we even matched our backgrounds! I think that's taking OCP to the next level. See for yourself:

This is too much for me to handle.

The ball cap and the helmet visor must certainly help shield your
eyes from the sun. I use a ball cap with my old helmet (visorless)
and a dew rag with the mtn bike helmet (visor)...but hey, what
do I know?

Nice pic.....oh, all right, nice pics.

I think I may puke.

That cap should be a Silence-Lotto cycling cap.

Flippin' scary! It's a gift, don'tcha know.

I bow to your and DD's superior OCPness. I am not worthy.

You should have got a shot with you and the bike. That would really seal the deal.

(Red Rider even matches her socks to her bike)

I notice that you have only shown an upper body shot of yourself DG. Just hope that the OCPness has not gone to matching red shorts.

I see a little bit of blue on your right shoulder. Maybe you can remove it

Nice pics. Looks like it was a good day for riding.

You do kind of clash with that magenta newspaper box in the background, can you do something about that?

Sure...you cropped your pic because you're wearing matching riding skirts.

Realizing you may have a problem is the first step in dealing with the problem. You could talk to someone about the OCP issue that you have identified.
