SPASTIC MORON AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as a Poor Slob arrived on the scene wearing a Turtleneck Sweater in 80-degree heat.  What kind of Spastic Moron wears a Turtleneck in mid-August?  I do!  It turns out I had some "muscle spasms" in my neck and the doctor advised me to avoid exposing it to breezes or air conditioning for a while.  The good news is that, thanks to the UCLA East-West Medical Clinic and their innovative approach combining Chinese and Western medical techniques, I'm pretty much right as rain again.  The bad news is, folks are starting to wonder whether I've been getting fashion tips from "Ms. Mukluk," the woman known for wearing Arctic Footwear year-round at 7th and Montana ...!

Don't feel bad, when I was recoving from a tendon repairment, i had to wear wooden leggings during Mid-August as well. I still have to wear them to keep my muscles from getting cold.

I'll bet Captain underpants wears his headgear for  a similar reason as you wearing a turtle neck.  Are you related?

My doctor told me that those so called chinese medicalpractioneers aka gals of the night is what cause my neck spasms and the only cure was to use home grown products. hope that helps marty.

I can't wear turtlenecks.  They make me insane.  Well, more than usual, anyway.

80 degrees?  Crikey, I'll trade you.  I think we topped out at 104 today.  Meh.

Forget the fashion tips, I've got my fingers crossed you're wearing a decent deoderant with that top on for everyone's sake at 7th and Montana!. Oh and lilac is a bit last year don't you think?
