Residual Slobber

Thanks to the electronic age, I spend most of my time sitting in front of one screen or another.  But I do have an "outside job" that some of you have figured out involves motorcycles.  And yesterday was only the second time in a year that I have been scheduled to do a full day at that outside job on my heaviest day.  Because I get more "residual slobber" than I think I should at my desk job, I was quite paranoid and wore a full pad (not just a liner) as a back-up.  Well, my paranoia was for nothing.  I emptied my large Lunette 2-3 times in the porta-potty just in case it was filling faster than anticipated.  (Nope, no more than half full at any time.)  Despite all the walking, stretching, bending, flexing, on and off the bike a dozen times, my 90 mile commute sitting splayed on my bike, etc, there was barely a blip on my pad by the end of the day.

Came home exhausted, swapped for my (large) Mooncup because the Lunette felt funny, parked my (ample) butt in front of the TV and then went to bed early cos I just couldn't keep my eyes open any more.

In the middle of the night, I woke up to roll over, coughed and felt a blip.  Sh!t.  Got up to take care of it.  The Mooncup felt like it was in crooked.  Half-asleep, I swapped back to the Lunette because the Mooncup apparently didn't like how I was sleeping.  Hours later, now I'm back at my desk (TMI) with residual slobber all over my shield.

Conclusion: The less active I am, the more my cups leak.

Half-serious question: So could being more active be the cure to residual slobber???
