Well, it's not necessarily funny, except to me. Probably pathetic to others. I often go to bed in all my clothes (because I'm too tired to change). And I have been known to climb into bed with 2 muddy dogs and little clods of mud in the sheets....
And guess what? Nothing bad happened!
I work, I take care of my dogs, and I get them out into Mother Nature for fun as often as possible. Mostly, that's all I can do. Look, I HAVE to bathe them if they roll in a dead animal or some kind of God Awful doo doo or rot, but it's SO HARD. So, if it's just a little mud, who cares?
.... btw... I live alone.... (I wonder why)
Oh, and leg shaving?? That ended the summer after I came down w/ Lyme and Babs. I don't think I can convince anyone that my ziggy zaggly purple feet and ankles are tatoos. They are an abomination to Mankind and will never again see the Light of Day. I now wear long, hippy skirts (I'm 56) and often pull them down longer to hide my lower ankles.
Furthermore, along w/ the road map veins, I have red spots all over my legs. When I went to the Dr, I lifted my skirt to show him, saying, 'you see why I don't bother shaving my legs. No one, NO ONE must EVER see them.' (dang, I used to be a sunbather)
