Right! After all the christmassy stuf, unpacking a tower of gifts and some frustrating Second Life™ neck seam gazing, I now have to take a break from winter, even if it’s just a virtual escape. A return to my series on (obscenely) short shorts was exactly what the doctor ordered. Actually, I have heard that in the past people in Sweden sometimes got prescribed a holiday in a sunny place to help them get over depression. This might be a myth though. I remember that some years ago a limited group of people were offered the opportunity to work 6-hour days without loss of fulltime salary and before I knew it, the international press was writing about this as if the whole of Sweden was on this particular band wagon. I had to explain to somewhat jealous friends in my home country (Belgium) that, no actually, I am still working 8 hours a day AT LEAST thank you very much! Anyhooo, I digress. Shorts! I’ve got new shorts. And damn they are short!
The Highcut Shorts by Noche come with straps you can leave off if you like. At the back they’re almost a thong and the side slit is the kind of detail I really appreciate in SL. The shorts come in a variety of bulge sizes and have been rigged for Belleza Jake, Legacy and Athletic. That last one is kinda unique for Noche, as they usually don’t support the Athletic body (some people may refer to it as “Legacy Athletic”). I thought I’d use this as an occasion to give the Athletic body another outing, as it seems to be gathering dus in my inventory most of the time. It’s definitely nice to see this body has something new and skimpy to wear. And on that positive note, I’ll keep this blog post nice and short too… Although compared to the writing on many other SL blog posts, this was already a short story.
