This morning on my way to work, I was in a slow traffic area that gave me the opportunity to observe a woman out for a morning walk. She was wearing shorts. And she was not a small chick.
Here's the deal: I've got quite the inner thigh going on. I haven't worn shorts to work out in since I was in college, and I was a size 8. Even then it bugged me when they rode up a bit.
But this woman was just walkin' along down the street, with her right leg of her shorts hiked all the way into her crotch.
It's not like I could see anything except for an extra bit of thigh that I really didn't necessarily need to see, but still. It's the comfort level thing that I question. Did she really think that taking a walk in shorts was a good idea? And was I the only one uncomfy with the view we had? It just rubbed me (heh.) the wrong way, is all.
I work out in pants. Only pants. Pants all the time. Even they have a tendency to ride up a bit when I'm on the treadmill, but it's something I can deal with in a reasonably graceful way. (As graceful as one needs to be at the gym, anyway.)
Why do people with lots of inner thigh wear shorts? Even when it's hot out, nuh-uh. Maybe I'm just too damned picky...
