Penn Valley, CA — Area woman Jessica Milton admitted to Gish Gallop that she found chopping and collecting wood a challenge while wearing yoga pants. The 26-year-old Penn Valley, CA native has collected wood her entire life, and this was the first, and apparently last time she is going to wear pants.
“I’m a country girl,” stated Ms. Milton from the other side of her gate Wednesday afternoon. “I’m used to wearing jeans and flannel. But lately I’ve tried this yoga thing in Grass Valley. It’s been great for everything collecting wood. Anyhow, I still plan on wearing them as often as I can.”
According to her mother, Jamie Milton, Jessica has always been an “outdoorsy” type.
“Ever since she was a child, she loved climbing on things,” said a proud Jamie, her face glowing with the thought of her adventurous daughter. “We’d go hiking out near Bowman Lake, and she’d just gallop up the steep hills. And boy was she a real eater. She’d eat anything. But not if you dropped it on the ground.”
As for Jessica and her yoga pants conundrum, she is chalking up it up to a learning opportunity.
“Well, I’m never going to do that again,” continued Jessica. “I know they look comfortable, and they’re really bendy and flexible. But you need something a little tougher when you’re out in the field doing your thing. Live and learn.”
