Mister P: He-Man

Before my cold bike ride this weekend, I asked IronAndre for advice. He instilled the fear of God in me: "You need a headband and a neck guard and arm warmers and knee warmers and a portable generator." I didn't get everything he suggested, but I did do some shopping at the bike store. I was looking at the arm warmers, which are kind of like thick nylon stockings with the toes cut out. I wasn't sure how they were suposed to fit, and the way they were packaged you couldn't really try them on easily. I asked the salesguy "how do these sizes work? Are they based on arm length?" The guy said "no, it depends on the size of your arm." I grumbled a bit to myself, thinking "oh great, here we go again" and I grabbed the small arm warmers. But then the salesguy reached out, grabbed my upper arm, and said "you should probably go with the medium". HA! No girlie-stockings for me!

Believe what you wish, Laurie... But the reality is that the small warmers are for people built like horse jockeys.

The portable generator is more of a required item, vs optional. The rest is then totally unecessary.

You mean sales guys aren't supposed to feel you up? Well! There's a suspiciously "helpful" young man at the Gap with whom I will exchange some choice words, toute de suite!
