'Cause I'm a dirty girl

Not that kind of dirty! Yesterday I rode my motorcycle down to the other side of the city to see where Shawn works. Then we went back to Bartlett so he could run an errand and we could eat lunch. On the way to lunch we took the interstate, which I don't like to do on my bike, but when we got on, I was hit by tiny pinpricks of pain. Usually there is a certain amont of road trash picked up by tires in front of me and flung in the air for me to drive through, but this was more intense. It felt like I was riding in a sand-storm. Turns out I really was. Up ahead was a dump truck with a full load of sand. It left a cloud in the air. So I was sandblasted at 70mph.
When I came home, I showered it off.
But then Shawn and I started a new project. I'll let you know what it is in a few days, but it involves power tools like saws and sanders. I got covered in saw dust. Itchy, sawdust that sticks to sweaty skin. And when I tried to brush some off my arm, I got a surprise. It hurt! Apparently I was a stupid head and forgot to wear sunscreen on my lunch excursion, and got fried like a lobster. So I ended up taking another shower after we called it a night.
I'm not a dirty girl now!

So funny that you had to clarify the level of your dirtiness! Hee!!

You just had all kinds of issues glad you're not dirty anymore.

Boy, you are a brave soul to get on 240 on your bike. I hate driving on it in my mom tank. The van.
So....what are you building....
I'm curious now.

Oh, I am soooo sorry about the sunburn!!!! Being filthy is not fun in and of itself, but when you factor sunburn into grime it feels miserable!!!! Hope you are feeling better now.

Oh wow! You're brave to ride down the interstate on your motorcycle. Sorry about the sunburn, put lots and lots of aloe on it - that'll help. Hope you feel better soon.
