I rode to the Katy Perry concert in full sequin-and-hot-pants regalia last night, feeling ever so slightly ridiculous as I am in my mid-30s.

At a red light, I hear another bike roll up behind me, so I turn around and say hello…. and it’s a woman about my age wearing a leotard and tights, on her way to an adult ballet class.

Two lessons learned from this event:

a) Age ain’t nothin’ but a number.

b) A gold sequined shirt is possibly the most high-vis garment in existence, in case anybody wants to go that route for safety.

A very different visual, but the same (delightfully immature, highly conspicuous and high-vis) feeling in it’s own way:

Wearing a menorah atop my helmet just before and during the days of Hanukkah. Was awesome, can’t wait to do again.

Hell, I went out in public like this, might as well be on the internet. It somehow seems appropriate that it is blurry:

So much awesome.

I’ve seen “Disco Ball” fabric that I was tempted to try and make something with, but I’m not very handy with the sewing machine.
