Spring has been taking it's own sweet time getting here this year, so any small sign that it might be here to stay is most welcome.
I have gotten into the habit of not shaving my legs in the winter. You know, the added warmth of a "winter coat" and all. (Or laziness...)
For some reason the 25-year-old woman that I work with at the school thinks that this practice is disturbing. Because of that, I felt it my duty to desensitize her by showing her my hairy legs at every opportunity. You can imagine how much she enjoyed that.
Well, the other day I came in and asked her if she knew what a "harbinger of spring" was. She didn't. So I flashed this at her:
She was thrilled to know that I had shed my winter coat and spring had finally arrived at last!
