Speaking of "super snot" it could be dangerous riding a 'bent this time of year, what with folks blowing snot rockets. Safest to be on the same side as their mirror.

Aha! That explains it. The funny thing is I even tried deleting it and going to the emoticon interface and got the same result!

That had me worried I was seeing things, so I decided to leave it and move on.

Next time wear a kilt. Only a kilt. No shirt, no underpants. Shoes are fine.

I'll guarantee you that the time after that, when you show up in baggy knickers on a recumbent, people will thank you for your discretion and compliment you on your great taste.

This would be even more, um, effective since he's on a 'bent...

Now there's an idea - I like it. However, the reason I was wearing my baggy knickers is because it was too cold for shorts. A kilt without undies isn't going to work for me.

Well then, you'll have a perfect excuse when they laugh at you this time. You can blame it on shrinkage fromthe cold
