Your Garden Variety H---- K---- N----- Guard

It seems I was taken to task in my last post by a fellow Steer over my Boston Marathon goal time of 3:25. He seemed to feel I was setting it too slow. He may have a point. In fact, last year around this time, I set my Bayshore goals faster than 3:25 and achieved them!

So, maybe 3:20 would be a better goal. I’ll consider this an amendment to my official goals.

I sure appreciate his frank and honest feedback. Not to worry, I was not offended for being harangued in the comments section of my “goals” post. I always value good, honest feedback from my readers. What are we if not a society of open communicators?

On a completely separate matter not at all connected with someone criticizing me over my Boston goals….

Have you ever seen a grown, hirsute (word score = +15 pts) man wearing H---- K---- band aid n----- guards??

Let’s all laugh at how funny it looks.
Update: 8/14/08 Hilarious picture has been removed. Sorry.

Any other comments on my Boston goals can be left in the comments section along with an incriminating photo, if you please.

I would also appreciate hilariously deriding comments about the person in this “anonymous” photo.

Smiles.

I never thought I'd have a chance to use one of my favorite English language words, hirsute, in a post. What an unexpected treat. Check another item off the "100 Things To Do Before I Die" list!

You say "hirsute," I say "pilose"... slowly step away from Shift+F7, Kristina...

The round band-aids are a better option for men. They will cover your nipples but not leave those boundaries and encroach on your hairy-ness. If you actually enjoy ripping out chest hairs when removing your standardd band-aids after a race then please disregard this public service announcement.

Wow....that's disturbing on so many levels. I'm going to gouge my eyes out with a red hot poker now.

Is there a rational for the vertical vs horizontal bandaid positioning? Other than having Hello Kitty the right way up that is...

Funny. Actually, I use the word "hirsute" at least 5 times a day. But then I'm an endocrinologist, hell, what do I know. But then again, I've never actually used the term when referring to men before...hhhmmm...

OMG the comments are as funny as the post. I'm dying.

Hirsute almost doesn't cover it. Holy cow.

Um, I notice the photo shows 'steer' on the racing bib. Perhaps this is another team member incognito?

Very observant, Lisa. I will not reveal the headless flashers identity however.
