Day 14: What you wore today.
Okay, this is kind of silly, but I’ll be a sport.
I would like to say that what I wore today was a function of having gone to watch Saints training camp today, but really…it’s more or less what I wear every day.
Jeans, cotton blouse with 2/3 sleeves (arms are always, always covered), comfortably sprung New Balances.
After a year or two of having the gift basket business, my daughter looked at me sadly and said, “Mom, do you remember? How you used to get up every morning and fix your hair? Put makeup on? Dresses and heels? Why don’t you do that any more?”
I’m not sure I ever actually answered her, since the reasons seemed fairly obvious.
And from today’s adventure:
It was hot – Heat Index at 105 hot. I have no idea how these guys were still upright, but you can see how drenched Drew Brees is. They weigh them before and after practice, and yesterday he tweeted “Is it normal to lose 8 lbs at practice? Steamy day in Nola.” Today was no different, and several players were carted off with dehydration issues. They were out for nearly 3 hours, working their butts off, but even just standing there I could only take it for about half of that.
