Outdoor Sporting Goods AND A Giant Licorice All-Sorts Woman
I was just over at Local Girls place,reading about the stuff she has just purchased,and it made me think of my own experiences with-
CAMPING EQUIPMENT... [Dramatic re-verb]
OH yes! Camping gear.
We have a HUGE sporting goods store down the road.It is so big that they have all the display tents set up inside so you can 'check em out' Plus indoor climbing and EVERYTHING else that you have ever dreamed of all in ONE HUGE ROOM!!
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE...
You go there and somehow become quite passionate (sucked in) about something you have never even done,or even thought about doing.
And you begin to feel that you simply must have that Portable, Solar, Camping Shower with camouflage accessories, complimentary toiletries and SIX precision steak knives at "No extra cost"
Last winter i ended up with a pair of purple,black and white striped thermal underwear with matching top- As supplied to the something-or-other Olympic team and made out of some sort of super dooper, recycled, guilt free fibre that apparently, and i quote, "breathes"
I love wearing them,as when i do i look like a very tall licorice all sort!
I must say though that they actually are incredibly toastie in a breathe-e sort of way
And don't even get me started on just how fabby-do the bicycle section is.
I have never seen so many gadgets!
OH JOY OF JOYS...
So near, yet financially soooooooo far...sigh..Oh well. I still have my licorice all-sorts/Where's Wally outfit...YAY!
xox eve xox
Post Script- My,so far,all time,favorite bike gadget is my little,super dooper head light (not it's real name!)
It is my favorite because when i was looking at it in a fancy schmancy bikes only shop... The salesman approached me and started telling me all about it and the other lights that they had on display.
I asked a few questions.
He sensed that he was loosing me...AND THEN, pointing at the little head light and showing me something printed into it's sleek,black casing
He said -"It's WATERPROOF to 50 meters"
This will so come in handy when i am riding my push bike*
20.000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA!!!!!!!
