He said most Chip. We know it doesn't apply to us, and the women can somehow just tell, can't they?

I got a yell of "Real nice legs" last night, from a car full of college aged ladies. I have no problem with this, and I am perfectly comfortable with it.

Or maybe not.

They think you have money.

Seriously, I was once "Flashed" by a young woman in the passenger seat of a passing Camaro. I was passing the Jackson Homestead on Washington street in Newton MA. This Camaro came up behind me,
and there was the usual female "Whoooo!" noises, I turned, and here was this very lovely brunette with no top on, hanging out the passenger window. I'm pretty sure she was Italian. Cycling does have its rewards.

I really tried to catch them at the next light, but it changed before I got there.
