SHAME ON ME

I have a confession to make. It may shock you and make you turn away from my blog forever. I will be sorry to lose you but I can't help it. Are you ready for this confession?

I am a dirty old woman.
There I said it out loud. I am hanging my head in shame.

While driving through a nearby city today traffic slowed to a crawl due to road construction. At least I thought that was why but I soon saw what was really slowing everyone down.

RoadImage via Wikipedia


Some of the work crew were working without their shirts on and I thought I would drive off the road. These 20 something young men were so incredibly muscular and tanned I thought there might be cameras around doing a photo shoot.
They were shoveling and flexing, pushing asphalt and flexing,
climbing onto equipment and flexing.
It was only sheer luck that stopped me from rear ending the vehicle in front of me.
At this point I should mention that I will be away from my blog for a while because I am going on the road to follow the crew. I will try to get pictures as they work their way through the summer construction. Do you think the city would give me a copy of the work orders so I can get a good parking spot in the vicinity?

DISCLAIMER: IF YOU HAVE A HOT, MUSCULAR SON IN THE CONSTRUCTION FIELD PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGIES.

You know Lori, you could've taken a picture...~ Robyn

Lori E said...

Gosh I could barely steer as it was. Now if I was reaching for a camera or cell phone I would have crashed for sure. Of course there is something to be said for mouth to mouth resuscitation. With my luck I would have got the old guy on the crew that still had his lunch in his teeth.

You Go Girl!

Lori, thanks for making me spit water out of my nose - that hurts! This was too funny. Lori E is becoming a road crew groupie. The pay's not great, but oh those fringe benefits! Kathy

Tessa at Blunders with shoots, blossoms 'n roots said...

You're funny...and not alone! One reason summer is a favorite time of year for me :)

Lola said...

On your groupie tour with the road crew, you should shoot a calendar. Mr January drilling the asphalt. Mr. June wiping the sweat from his brow with oily, flexed muscles, etc.
You could make a fortune selling it.

And I'd be the first to buy it!

Ciao,
Lola xx

I always thought that sign meant Pooper Scooper Ahead!

lindalee said...

Waiting for the photos in North Olmsted.....

Lori E said...

You guys are a bad influence. Now I am tempted to go out again tomorrow and take pictures. I don't think they are going to be in the same place.
And Lynn, that is not a pooper scooper sign it is my husband digging a hole to put me in if I start following the work crew around. Lol.

RobinfromCA said...

Yes, please go back and take pictures! It was more evil to describe it and not show it. I may be a very happily married woman but, as my father-in-law used to say, "Just because I'm on a diet doesn't mean I can't look at the menu!" :)

Mary said...

I've never known a road crew groupie before :-). I really like the calendar idea above. Just don't dent your fenders.

Hey! I wanna see those picttures, LOL!...Christine

Should I live to be 100, I shall watch "roofers" with dirty delight.

This post really made me smile! I can imagine.....

Joanne said...

Oh Lori you just made hot time in the city a good thing. From one dirty old lady to another -- clink!! (that was the sound of margaritas). Shhhhh don't tell anyone but several of our young instructors and students are the type of body I LOVE watching walk away - nothing like tight thighs and butts to make my heart flutter. Good thing my sweetheart has both and I can enjoy with delight anytime at home.

Sue said...

I was anxiously waiting for the d*^# pictures to load, but....NOTHING!!! Lucy, you get your butt out there NOW!!! We want pictures.... Ethel

I echo the sentiments of the other ladies here. You've fallen down badly on this one. Its unforgiveable that you didn't have a camera of some description on you to take a photo or two. Not even a cell phone camera? Honestly. I don't think I can ever speak to you again. *flounce*
