Something I Couldn't Do

I'm working on a post about some funky new stuff I've been wearing on the bike that will prove without a doubt that I no longer care very much about how I look. Wait, that's wrong. If I didn't care, I wouldn't write about it. Let's say instead that increasingly, function trumps form when it comes to my choices. Sadly, that means I look a little more freakish with each new development. Thank goodness I'm not single and looking... my prospects would be grim. Not as grim, though, as they would be if I were sporting one of these:

That is Something Even I Just Couldn't Do.

What may be more grim is the abundance of "how cool is THAT!" type comments on the link attached.

Oh, you would'nt money to look like that! But if someone offered to let you use one for a while- HA!- you'd do it in a flash!

Wow, a knitted gas-mask cozy! That makes quite a fashion statement.

BTW: "Gas-Mask Cozy" would make a helluva band name or album title. Maybe I'll use it for the project I'm currently working on.

Rantwick said...

Anon - you saw those too, eh? Agreed. Knitters freak me out.

ChipSeal - Nope, in this case I really wouldn't.

Jon - Band Name, yes. Facial wear, no.

i'd do it, with a -30 windchill here in Toronto count me in..

Rantwick said...

Xander - I'm all for covering my face when it is cold enough, but I'll take a good old belaclava (and breathing mask, if necessary) over a knitted snuffalupagus face.

I'd like to see ANY of you with the guts to walk into a Seven Eleven with that on!

ChipSeal said...

The gang at work got wind of this blog post, and now they are taking up a collection to have me wear at work!

"To beautify the office" they say!

Yeah, no lie. I didn't see the irony until after I wrote the post!

Do you find that a little bit creepy, dear Rantwick, like I do?

Chandra said...

reminds me of the first time i went into my bank with the balaclava on LOL!

Rantwick said...

ChipSeal - Find what creepy?

Chandra - You didn't...did you? He he.

ChipSeal said...

To clarify-

The word verification word was "judger", and my comment was about folks critical about my countenance.

Rantwick said...

ChipSeal - Ahah! Understood. Captchas seem to do that kind of stuff fairly often, it seems to me.

ChipSeal said...

Yes, but how did it know?

It is sorta like those public maps at malls and such, that point out that "you are here". How do they know that I would be right there in that particular spot at that exact time? Jeez, real creepy, if you ask me.
