Today's Word of the Day is "perspire."
How appropriate! I lead our senior exercise class this morning. I knew going into it that I would perspire, and I came prepared with a headband. I should have taken a bath towel, too! *G*
My mother used to say that "LADIES perspire, they do not sweat!" I believe she was repeating something she had heard when she was young. Mother did neither, but I do enough of both for the two of us!
I am so very fortunate that my home is surrounded with trees and shrubs, so that when I am outside gardening, none of the neighbors, and no one passing by can see me. I am a veritable WRECK! I wear long sleeves, and frequently add a turtleneck when weather allows. I have on a hat and gloves and layers of OFF. I need to buy one of those umbrellas that people put on their patios, with the heavy base. I could roll it from place to place to shade the area where I need to work. Great idea, hmmm?
At any rate, after two hours of gardening, my shirt is filthy, stretched out and soaking wet. My slacks are just as bad, especially at the elastic waist.
I perspire. Ohhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhh....I perspire. Baby, I SWEAT!!!
