Before my daughter got married, she worked in the shoe department at JC Penney. It didn’t take long before we realized she was using her employee discount to amass quite a collection of shoes. We didn’t quite realize the extent of her collection until she got married and her husband had to try to find space to store those shoes. For some reason, he’s still sensitive when the subject of shoes comes up!
With the weather forecast for this morning calling for temps in the forties, I started rummaging around my cycling gear for the right pair of gloves and came to the realization that I’ve started a collection of my own!
You see, my hands are very cold natured. My wife will tell you they feel like ice cubes almost every time I put them on her (which is often, by the way)! Unfortunately, that means I tend to keep seeking out new and better options for keeping my digits toasty warm in all weather. This morning, I pulled out a brand new pair of “mild weather” gloves. As I did, I laid out all the other options I had for different temperatures and realized there were eight pairs of gloves laying on the floor. Good grief!
Do you find yourself accumulating stuff like that also, or does it just run in my family?
Footnote: I would probably be remiss if I didn’t explain why I have a new pair of mild weather gloves. I lost the last pair I had. I found out that when you lay them on the spare tire on the back of the Jeep and then drive someplace they will magically disappear. Can you imagine that?Explore posts in the same categories: bicycle, Bike Gloves, cold weather cycling, Cycling, Fitness comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
