I’d Like To Respond to the Comments on This Picture of Me in Las Vegas
Michele and I are planning another trip to Las Vegas this week. We've been many times now and absolutely love it. It's like an amusement park for adults. If you've never been, I highly recommend it, but maybe don't go in August like we did last time when the high temperature was 106°. It's hard to avoid that heat when you have to walk just about everywhere you want to go on the Las Vegas Strip.
One place we stopped on our trip last year was a cocktail bar at the Wynn Hotel and Casino. They had an outdoor space right near a shallow pool of water and a waterfall. Michele ordered some fruity drink in a tall glass and I had a whisky on the rocks.
Michele took this picture of me enjoying my drink, the atmosphere, and of course, spending some much-needed alone time with her.
I'm not one that usually thinks he photographs well, but I thought this picture turned out pretty good.
Both Michele and I posted the picture to our Facebook pages and the comments started coming in hot. Let's take a look, shall we? I'll address each comment one at a time.
Yes, my legs are pretty pale. I don't spend much time in the sun.
Yes. We all do. Mine just are usually hidden.
Born and raised a white-legged Maine boy.
No, I do not shave my legs. There is some hair on them, but much like my head, I'm losing hair on my legs too from about midcalf down. Maybe a side effect of my chemotherapy treatment 10 years ago? I really don't know, but it doesn't bother me in the least. I don't have a Lady Bic, and when I started in radio, I had a full leg and head of hair.
I saw this one coming as soon as the pale leg comments started.
No comment as this has already been covered.
If you're asking if I'm wearing underwear Brett, of course I am. If you're asking if the shorts you see me wearing in the photo ARE my underwear, they are not.
I'm going to take that as a compliment Voornas, because it sounds like you're calling me "The Most Interesting Man in the World." However, I don't drink Dos Equis.
Any further questions? Don't ask. I think we've covered, or uncovered my legs pretty well. They will be just as pale and hairless when I go again this year. I'll be sure to share a photo so those of you who missed the chance to comment last year will get a chance.
