On the 35-minute drive in to work each day, my mind has time to wander.
It really is a beautiful drive - rolling prairies (ok, they roll somewhat flatly), fields of cows, horses, antelopes and llamas, and the occasional coyote all make for interesting conversation starters.
I realized this morning, as I gazed upon some gorgeous antelopes, why animals are always so beautiful.
They eat well and exercise on a daily basis, resulting in beautiful lines and lean, rippling muscle.
And WHY do they live like this?
It's because they're naked!
Most wild animals don't have access to flowy skirts or distracting accessories, so they need to work extra hard to stay in shape, for esthetic reasons.
