Four Cool Runners

... and one skinny dork.
Notice anything odd about the "freaky" guy, top row left?

One these things doesn't belong!

(UPDATE: There is something different on me. Can you spot it?
Hint: I need someone to help me dress)

Your shirt is on backwards. -
BINGO!
I didn't intend to wear this shirt, but since it was a very nice "high tech" runner's tank, special stay dry material, I decided to change at the last minute. It came in the run "package".

Usually they give you a cotton tee shirt for a souvenir, and you can't run in hot weather in a cotton shirt, it gets wet with sweat and never dries.

Later, when they were selling extras, one of the girls in our group said she wanted one for a friend, but not like the one I had on. I said they were all the same, then someone else said, yeah ,yours is different....... because you're wearing it backwards. I laughed and said that after all it was a retro run, so wearing it backwards was appropriate. "Retro" the adjective means from a past era, but "retro-" the prefix, means backwards.

So, no problem, I was being retro.

There's something special tucked under your shirt? Looks like a dork calculator to me. As for the guy - uh, is he wearing mauve lipstick?

PoP - Perhaps you need to come back to this picture after some coffee.

Supergirlest - I wouod not run if chased ;). The problem is nobody is chasing me.

Nancy - The dork is right there. It's hard for "real" friends to see. LuvYa2 XoXoXoX

allison - No, it's the same shirt as everyone else is wearing.

angry - Yes, the facial hair is gone, but just for the weekend. Sometimes I just shave everything off and start new. I have already grown the goatee back

Blueberry - BINGO!

Peacechick - Wow, You can see the calculator, that's spooky. However, no lipstick, that is the natural color of my lips.

I'm late to the party but I caught it right away. Funny.

angry ballerina said...

It's ok nick, you can just admit that you were drinking heavily the night before and couldn't remember which was the front and which was the back.

Pam said...

Hee hee!! You are almost as dorky as my husband. (That's a compliment, btw, as that is what i find most attractive about him).

Peacechick Mary said...

Well, it beats having it on upside down! You look so healthy and into the good, good, good vibrations.

I thought it was a nice fashion statement emphasizing individuality.
