Ruby Tuesday: Fireman Only
It’s Ruby Tuesday. Go by MARY’S PLACE and check out all the red.
Ever since I mentioned ‘naked firefighters’ in yesterday’s post I’ve had firefighter on the brain – which is really not the place I’d like one but we take what we can get.
This is the side of an old firehouse in a town ‘down dah pawkway’. Right behind that window there are cots and firefighters sleep on those cots – I’ve never had the balls to peek – they do deserve some privacy.
I don’t want to objectify firefighters – but really, come on – they’re so freaking sexy it hurts my eyes. It’s more than the uniform. It’s more than broad shoulders. It’s more than knowing how to handle a giant hose.
Firefighters are sexy because they’re courageous. In putting their lives in jeopardy as part of a routine day they have developed a sense of priority that is keen and crisp and clear. The dictionary describes courageous as – “… inborn quality of mind or spirit that faces or endures perils or difficulties without fear and even with enthusiasm. “
Need I say more?
