I've gotten somewhat comfortable showing up for work in muddy wet gear. It wasn't always that way. Today I sunk to a new low. I went to a dentist appointment wearing (and packing) riding gear. Now I know why riders pack their helmet along. It explains the weird clothes. It doesn't explain why your riding when it's 40 degrees out, but I guess a little mystique is good to maintain.
My dentist thought it was cool! :)
In one corner a pile of gear overflows a small chair. I'm lounging in the dentist's chair, in armored pants and muddy boots getting x-rayed, and probed (sounds like an alien abduction), and feeling rather ridiculous. Truly I must be a princess for I will be receiving another crown (lucky me).
So I wonder, how weird is it to wear a helmet when half your face is numb? Guess I'll be finding out soon enough!
My dentist said he used to ride...
