Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Friday, January 20, 2006


I've witnessed all sorts of public displays of personal grooming on public transit.

Some people clip their nails on the bus, which is horrifying. It's disgusting beyond belief to know that human detritus is flying through the air and could land on me at any moment. Blech.

Some women apply their makeup on the bus. I'm not talking about a touch-up...I'm talking about the whole face. I'm actually more amazed by that than disgusted, as I don't know how they can do it without poking an eye out or looking like an Impressionist painting when they're done. I can barely get mine on properly in front of my bathroom mirror.

This week? There's a guy who's been shaving on the bus. Yes. Shaving. And he's got the loudest electric razor I've ever heard. And it takes him forever to finish his shave.

Is it wrong that I'm a bit grossed out by this??

As a trucker you would not belive what I see going on down the hiway. Now some of it I kinda really like but shaving would not be one of them LOL!
