Many of us are in the business of cultivating some serious dermal delight down here at SFCF.
This is good.
It's tough to meet a dishonest callus. They represent weeks (perhaps months) of solid, consistent effort. How can you not love your body's ability to specifically adapt to it's situational requirements? All that natural phenomena and they protect your hands to boot...what's not to like?
Unfortunately it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Once in a while a little callus maintenance is in order to avoid excessive build-up and potential dermal disaster. For the discreet among us, a file in the shower while the skin is soft does the trick. For the bull-headed among us, too much chalk and not knowing when to stop will rip that little bastard from your hands post-haste...especially fun training is to be had in the weeks following such an event (so think it through before you push through).
For the rest of us, there are the unorthodox methods of callus removal:
The classic 'Pick-at-the-dinner-table' whilst listening to your family regal you with tales of their day...
The tooth-sharpening glee of the 'Chomp-spit-n-stomp'...
The sensory oddity of the 'Nail-clipper-cut-away'...
Post best callus removal method to comments. Be proud, you earned them!
Ps Note how Damian (above) has broken the 'Fabric-Barrier' with raw human power only...I believe up until the 1950s scientists deemed this an impossible feat.
PPS Regarding Shirts:
I have limited sizes available right now. I will do the run with what I have and if people like them I will do more. If you want the Monsters design or the Space-station design (pictured a few posts back) on a garment of your choice, it's $10 cash and you have to supply the garment. Pre-washed/shrunk cotton takes the ink best.
