Things I Saw Today

Shirtless older gentleman at the playground. Reading the newspaper.

This isn't the first time I've seen an older man with his shirt off at a playground. And I'm kind of confused as to why.

I can't imagine he was working on his tan. The tan lines caused by the fence he was sitting next to would be horrendous. It was probably about 85 degrees outside, so not super hot. He wasn't dressed in running attire and the loafers and high socks he was wearing were certainly not conducive to exercising.

The only reason I can think of is that most people that live in Brooklyn don't have a yard so most of the things one would do in the privacy of one's yard are done in public places. Unfortunately.
