With all this talk about terrorist threats and how Americans should keep a low profile I thought I'd do some research.
To be honest, I didn't mean to do the research. I'm just an American and so I do American things without even thinking it's American. Duh. And then I feel stupid.
How NOT to keep a low profile:
#1 For sure you should go jogging after lunch.
#2 Always wear shorts and a tank top.
#3 Be sure you have super shiny, neon green Nike shoes.
#4 By all means wear your hot pink ipod strap on your upper arm.
#5Of course you should stay to the main thoroughfares and never jog on jogging appropriate paths like a normal person.
#6 Have it be 100 degrees and be one of those unfortunates who turns super rock n' roll RED when exercising in the heat.
And if that's not enough, you might as well wear some of those American flag jogging shorts. I might as well have.
From now on it's jogging in the early morning hours when I don't stand out quite so much.
Or maybe I'll give in and start riding a bike everywhere. Definitely no helmet. Always a scarf and skirt. And there had better be cigarette smoking. That should do it.
