Muddy Pink Pants

I bought a pair of light pink jeans for geocaching a few months ago at Marshalls or somewhere like that.  They cost all of about $12 and the whole point was that they are light enough in color that I can easily see ticks on them...not exactly a normal selling point but whatever.  They fit a need for me.

I went caching Friday with a girlfriend who regularly gives me grief about the fact that I still fix my hair and wear makeup when I go climbing trees or scrambling over rocky hillsides with her.  Today was cold and wet and we both ended up dirty almost to the knees...she said that only *I* would wear pink pants while trekking in mud.

After a little thought, I decided I'd take that as a's not a bad thing to like looking like a girl as long as you're not limited by it.  And if that makes it easier to find and remove ticks while you're at it, so much the better!


  1. Here's how I feel about makeup:

  2. Too funny!! Never seen that one before. In my own defense, my makeup takes less than a minute to put on. ;)

  3. Yeah, I figured you weren't that high maintenance. :) I have friends with blond eyelashes who do a quick mascara because otherwise they get a lot of "Are you sick? You look all washed out" all day long, so it's just easier to avoid that.

    I'm a HUGE Miranda Lambert fan, and that song just so rang true to me.

  4. No, I'm not high maintenance...just a little eyeliner, mascara and powder and I'm good to go. Literally, less than a minute. I know people who take a good hour to do their makeup in the mornings and I have no idea what in the world could possibly take so long!! What a waste of a perfectly good hour. :)


I love comments...please share yours!

(Or maybe this should have been part 1 since it will happen first.) We dropped Thing One off at his first sleepaway soccer camp on Saturda...
