Robin Thicke sucks as a bike messenger

I saw this Robin Thicke video of him singing a song while delivering packages in NY. But he sucks. First of all if you don’t know who he is, Robin is the son of Alan Thicke (Growing Pains 80’s sitcom).

Anyways, check out how he has some pro rider do his stunts.

Don’t get me wrong, Robin is a great singer, infact one of my favorite songs is…Lost without you.

No more wrinkles

Here’s another excuse that people use so they won’t ride to work: My clothes get wrinkled.

If you neatly roll your clothes onto your backpack, pannier or messenger bag your clothes shouldn’t wrinkle. But what if your clothes DO get wrinkled? Here’s what I use:

Downy’s Wrinkle releaser. This thing works like a charm when your shirt or pants are slightly wrinkled, just spray, tug and smooth and voila, just like the way your Mom ironed them.

Out of Air

As I was riding back to my mom’s (that’s where I leave my kids and park the truck) on Friday, I noticed that the rear of the Swobo Sanchez was wiggling. I slowed down and stopped and noticed that my rear tire was really low on air. I was about 1/2 mile away from my final destination, so instead of changing the tube, I grabbed my SealnFlate can (sort of like a fix-a-flat) and tried to inflate the tire.

For whatever reason, the SealnFlate did not work, it actually made it worse by sucking whatever little air I had left on my tire. Fine, I still had my CO2 pump in my Deuter Backpack that I usually carry when I go mountain biking. I hook up my CO2 pump to the tire, push the trigger and… nothing, no pssss, nothing… WTF? Oh crap, I remembered that last time I went mountain biking at night with RL and Priscilla RL got a flat and I offered my CO2 pump.

So, I was SOL. I ended up walking the last half mile to my mom’s house since I didn’t want to call my sister to pick me up. (Grace was working Bingo that night). So I will make sure that I carry my mini-pump from now on and forget about those ‘fix-a-flat’ in a can doo-dads and the CO2 pump.

I used to stink!

Ever since I was a kid my feet had always been stinky. No matter what I did, it would always smell at the end of the day! I used deodorants, sprays, powers, anti-odor soles and etc…nothing worked

It wasn’t until a few years ago Priscilla brought home the Crystal Stick. At first I wasn’t sure what it was…I read the label and it said something about natural salts and how it prevented your body from producing odor causing bacteria. First I started using the Crystal Stick as an under arm deodorant. To my surprise this stuff worked! The Crystal Stick stop my BO from showing up. I used to have to reapply my traditional deodorant by 6pm, but I found that the Crystal Stick lasted up to a few days! Seriously, I’d apply it right after my shower on Monday, couple of days and showers go by, I still haven’t reapplied and my pits still don’t smell!

Anyhow back to my feet. So I tried everything under the sun to prevent foot odor. Nothing worked. Then one day I figured if the Crystal Stick works for my pits, then it has to work for my feet. I applied a generous amount of the stick after a good shower in the morning. Then at the end of the day pulled off my socks and guess what…NO SMELL!

Now I figured if this stuff works for my feet…why not my nuts!

Yup I said it, my nuts. C’mon guys you know what I’m talking about. At the end of the day your balls can get smelly from all the sweat and stuff. Well, the Crystal Stick works there too!

Basically you can apply this stuff anywhere you don’t want to be smelly, and it REALLY WORKS!

Just remember to follow the directions, basically after you bathe, get the stick really wet and apply generously. That’s it, its easy!

If you’re tired of being smelly…get the Crystal NOW!!!!!!
