Now to climb on the soap box....
From a healthcare provider's standpoint, I can't emphasize enough to leave your back pockets empty when sitting or laying on your back. The wallet in the back pocket is just about the number one cause of sciatic nerve damage (tingling or radiating pain down through the leg and ball of foot), as well as low back pain. Sitting on a wallet tweaks the pelvis and over time creates low back pain and skeletal misalignment.
Save yourself a lot of money, and misery, and just find someplace else to put the daggone thing, it may be inconvenient, but your body will thank you.
Climbin' down now...
Heading out to dentist then market.

Nothing in the back pockets. I learned about the sciatica problems a long time ago.

goawayfarm..I was thinking "color of the day". That's one of the ways plainclothes cops ID themselves to other cops quickly. Tuesday, for example, the color maybe RED... so a guy would carry a red bandanna as a quick "don't shoot I might be a cop" ID. Oh yeah, perps wear them too!!!
