those leg things that you wear when you bike.

I am probably the best biker you know. Do you know how I know this? It is because I wear those leg strap things when I bike.

You know, the straps you velcro around your lower calf/ankle to stop your pants from getting into the bike gears?

Yes. Those.

I wear them. Usually just one, actually, because the gears are only on one side. But I have a pair of pants that is extra wide-legged. They look a little something like this:



With a normal pair of pants I just strap up the right leg, but with these pants the left leg tends to swing places it shouldn't swing, also. So both legs get belted down when I wear these.

And then we have a problem because they're nice and billowy for most of the leg, until you get to the lower calf, where they become fitted. Like this:



Or, on the days when I dye my pants gold, like this:

Well, at least you have the leg straps because the other option is pegging your pants!!! That's a GREAT flashback to the early eighties!!!

I wish you had a picture of YOU in the dyed gold pants, not MC Hammer. I'm sure you look very chic.

I want to go bike riding with MC Hammer. Think of all the amazing tunes we could sing...you've got to pray just to make it today...

You are a write AND an artist dani! I couldn't totally see you in gold pants. But not with your gold shoes, that's too much.

I totally had a pair of Hammer pants in my wild youth. They were yellow with pink roses.

Do you own gold pants? Or just gold shoes? I would think by now you'd have a collection of gold apparel.
