Cleveland No Pants Subway Ride 2014

It’s nice to know that, even at 55, I must be considered “cool.” I got an invitation today to participate in Saturday’s Cleveland No Pants Subway Ride 2014.

See, I MUST be cool…

I guess this is maybe like the “raves” of my youth, or flash mobs more recently in that the events are organized “off the grid” and only “cool” people are involved. Here in Cleveland and a number of other cities around the globe, people will just show up and commit to ride public transportation “sans trousers.” In Cleveland, we do not technically have a subway system but the participants will be riding the RTA system:

As per Improv Everywhere, NYC’s activity aimed at spreading a little harmless chaos and joy. This is Cleveland’s group for participating with over 60 cities now around the world… all this coming weekend. This is NOT a naked day, a no rules day, or a strive for public indecency day! The rules are clear: it’s just a typical ride except for one detail…

and that would be the pantslessness…

No Pants Subway Ride

nopants-subway-rideI’m not sure I would look as chic or sexy as these gentlemen in my “Superman Underoos” but it sounds like it will be a riot. Unfortunately, I have to work but I wish all the pantless participants a HELL of a good time.

I think the world can definitely use a lot more foolishness like this. We all seem to be taking life MUCH too seriously lately. Kickin’ it with strangers in our undies, blushing and laughing and just being “one” in something memorable and silly must be amazing. Like I said, I hope you all have a super day.

I’m jealous…
