Buff/Not So Buff

My daughters and I are enjoying my new Hadrian’s Walk Buff. They love the balaclava mode. I’m partial to the pirate configuration, myself. Unfortunately an eye patch is not included, but even so I think it makes me measurably cooler to be around.

My wife, however, falls into fits of barely controlled chuckling whenever she sees me in it. Something is going to have to give. I leave it to you, the good people of the internet, to decide the fate of my marriage. I can’t see how that could possibly cause any problems.

Take a look at this photo, and then vote in the poll…

If you consider yourself a candidate for a Buff (or even a t-shirt, to hide your non-buffness (see above for proof that this works… at least a bit)) or you are someone who wants to do something nice for someone, take a quick shot over to Hadrian’s Walk.

Not sure what a Buff is or how it works? That’s okay. Watch this. It won’t help, but at least you won’t feel alone.
