Elbow Sweat

I’ve said it before – I really like walking home. The weather’s been crazy windy lately, but I love walking in the wind. Wind is the only thing that Nebraska has going for it, so I enjoy it. It whips your hair all around and the leaves go crazy on the trees – very fun. What I don’t enjoy is inner elbow sweat. I carry a tote bag that has all my junk in it and I have to hold onto the strap so it doesn’t fall off my shoulder.

What results is I.E.S. It’s ‘moist’ – my least favorite word.

Do you think I’d look funny with a towel wrapped around my arm?

Or a parasol? I’ve seriously considered a parasol – not for the sweat, but for the shade.

Have I said too much?

    Maybe you can just tape a cotton ball to your inner elbow. If anyone asks, just tell them you donated blood. You won’t look crazy AND you’ll look altruistic! Win/win!

    I recommend a backpack. There are plenty of cute ones and plenty of ergonomic ones (think waist straps and things that help distribute the weight). Then you have your hands completely free for whatever you want to do, and you have no further worries about IES.

    Afraid you won’t be able to grab your wallet when you find that just-right item? No worries, some of them even have a pocket on the waist strap so that you can get at your wallet easily.

    You could always get your sweat glands removed from that elbow.

    Fact You Should Know:

    Nearly 1 million Canadians experience excessive sweating.

    Apparently you can inject it to reduce sweating in addition to eliminating wrinkles and paralyzing your face.
