Fear of Sweat
It’s been hot and humid in Boston. So there have been a few uncomfortable bike rides into work recently.
Okay, so riding a bike in summer is a bit sweaty. But it seems a lot of people really worry way too much about sweating.
I admit I have a job where a few beads of sweat or wrinkles in my clothes don’t matter so perhaps I have it easy. But still seems some people have no sense of scale. As if a single bead of sweat warrants immediate separation from decent society for a vigorous scrub and wardrobe change.
So I’ll stick to my routine of one shower in the morning and a casual bike ride to work. But I do keep emergency moist towelettes in my bag. Because July.
