I need to rant, a bit. As the weather gets warmer, the layers begin to come off. Sometimes too many layers come off. I know that we do everything in our power to stay cool, and I am all for being outside and enjoying the sun, not sitting inside all day with the A/C on, but.....
KEEP YOUR SHIRTS ON, PLEEEEEEAAAAASE!!!!
If I want to see shirtless men, I will google images of them, I will pick up a magazine, I will turn on the TV, but I do not want to see Jon Q. Public out in his yard, riding down the road on his scooter, or driving his convertible in all his glory. Now, I know that there are some guys who look perfectly, well I'll just say it, Smokin' Hot, but the average Joe, is not that guy. I love the naked form, in particular my hubby's (he'll probably argue that he is not sexy, his opinion on this matter does not count, mine does), but I don't want to see my scrawny neighbor to the north, or my obese neighbor to the south outside shirtless. Yuck.
There are public decency laws, but none of them protect us against these guys who walk down the road, with t-shirts dangling from their back pockets, making me want to hurl. My husband and teenage son hide the spray paint, paint sprayers, super soakers (loaded with water AND food coloring), and paintball guns, because I have said many, many, many times that I want to "paint" the shirtless wonders as they wander around. At least they would have some cover, and maybe they would think twice about sailing past my house a la natural from the waist up. It's bad enough that their pants are, more times than not, somewhere close to their knees, I have to see their moobs (man boobs), too. If this makes me a prude, call me a prude. I don't care.
PS ANYBODY GOT A SPARE SUPER SOAKER, CAN OF SPRAY PAINT (water-based, of course), or PAINTBALL GUN, HMMMM?
