- Pro Choice – Risk Acceptance Guilty Pleasures?
As Grumm said in the helmet thread:
“We are all exposing ourselves to different degrees of risk all the time, the extent to which you accept them or try and mitigate them is often not done on a very logical basis, and is entirely up to the individual imo.”
I get up in the morning, iron a shirt and then have a shower and a shave. Because I sleep naked, it seems a bit of a waste of time to put clothes on to iron the shirt.
My girlfriend thinks this is stupid.
I burnt the front of my hip quite badly (thin skin) a little while ago. She said “I hope we’ve learnt something about ironing naked?!”
“Yes we have: Be More Careful When You’re Ironing Naked.”
