Me – work outdoors? Not in this lifetime! That is just not my idea of a good time. I hate the heat and I hate the cold. There are those though who don’t mind the elements of the outdoors, and I commend them. If it weren’t for many men and women who tend to be driven to work outside – just think of how that would effect our lives, our lifestyles. That said, if I was to be inclined to work outside – I would find it a must to wear protective clothing like coveralls for men.
Why would it be that I would need to wear coveralls? It’s like this – I am far from a careful person. I ruin more clothing doing chores like dishes and laundry, and even cooking. When doing dishes – my shirts end up being full of stains. I am soaked by the time I am done – NO joking here. When I do laundry, and as careful as I really try to be (I really do try) – I end up getting bleach all over me.
I have a wardrobe of clothing that I just wear at home – stains and all. I don’t think twice if I was to have company stop by and how I would look – doesn’t matter to me. It’s gotten to the point where I need to save some clothing for when I head out the door.
Can you even begin to imagine what I would do to my clothing if I worked outside? My work clothing would be all torn to shreds and imbedded with dirt and stains that I couldn’t get clean no matter what. I’d be wiping my dirty hands wherever just like when I go fishing – if I don’t have a wet rag beside me – I wipe the worm dirt on my pants (I have two pairs of pants just for fishing). When I stain or paint outside – I end up having it be all over my shoes and clothing.
Sure – a solution could be wearing an apron, except they’re not for me. I can’t stand anything tied around my neck including necklaces. I could even wear coveralls for men – but they are too much work for me when it’s time to go potty. If I worked outside, wearing coveralls for men would make me plain ugly – I’d be way too hot. I’ve narrowed it down, coveralls for men for whatever reason, is not happening in this lifetime for me. I’ll leave the coveralls for those who I appreciate 🙂
