View Full Version : A Tough Distraction - I Can't Be The Only One

08-12-2017, 07:13 AM
So, as I've gotten older, I'm getting not grey hair, but very thick, silver hair, some translucent, some seemingly as reflective as chrome...on my forearms.
On my bridge arm, some of the hair actually reflects the overhead lighting and it’s frigging distracting at times.
It just catches my sight out of the corner of my eyes.
I can get Jedi like focus at times (not nearly often enough) but because this happens inconsistently, it's therefore is unexpected when it does occur, and it does get me.
It's not a game changer of a distraction, just highly annoying.
I have plucked what were only a few offenders at first (not for vanity purposes), but their reinforcements seem to have grown in number.
When evening out my sideburns with the electric beard groomer, I do hit that small, but concentrated patch on my upper forearm.

Anyone else suffering from this "phenomenon"?

Wax your forearms, that should take care of your problem.

DJ....do you look at your windshield wipers when you're driving in the rain.
...hell, some players have big shiny watches on their bridge hands...
...just look where you're supposed to be looking.

Wear long sleeves.:cool:

We have the pool glove, perhaps someone could market the pool sleeve. That would solve your problem.

Congratulations on becoming a "Silver Back".

The backswing would be much more aerodynamic, too. Why do you think all the swimmers get rid of a
all that hair?

Edit: I'm only kidding, had ginger ale coming out of my nose posting this. lol

It's hard to play with your kids around....all those heirs are distracting.

I'm more bothered by loud music that makes me have to holler to communicate with others. And tourneys that have dress codes that make ball caps ok but frown on my beanie leaving me with Bobby pin options and cutting my hair. Sadly I decided to cut my hair.

Bastards lmao
