That Time of Year Again......Oh Darn.

As the Highland Games draw near yet again, I though to myself what better way to celebrate my heritage than to bask in the glory of man. And boy will this girl be baskin'! With the hopes of sharing such joy, I bring to you my list of reasons why I love the native dress of my people.
Thirteen Reasons Queen Goob Loves A Kilt
1. A kilt looks good on anyone.

2. A kilt looks even better on a man.

3. Men with work boots and heavy socks bunched up.

4. I LIKE wearing mirrors on my shoes.

5. A kilt is probably the most masculine article of clothing a man could wear.

6. You don’t have to worry about tearing out the knees or the bum.

7. You can dress them up or go casual, we really don’t care.

8. They come in any color you could possibly conceive.

9. I quote Mel Gibson as William Wallace in Braveheart when I yell …"Freedom!"

10. Who doesn’t like their man going commando?

11. Going commando and everyone knowing it.

12. A kilt provides free air conditioning on those hot summer days.

13. Women LOVE a man in a kilt.

....crap, that makes fourteen, doesn't it?

Makes the man in shorts look like a sissy! Come over here honey and let me blow up your skirt. "No Suzanne, you don't actually blow." I'm allowed to say that here, right?

Love you darling. So good to see you back.

I agree 100% this also marks an anniversay for me of meeting you(so to speak) I remember because of the kilt comments.

Oh golly, one thing I don't love is men with beer bellies in kilts. We seem to get quite a few up here at our highland games!

LceeL said...

There are some of us (JUST some of us, mind you), who, as possessors of 'beer bellies', have the good and common sense to stay OUT of kilts. In fact - the idea is to wear as much loose clothing as possible so as not to offend the sensibilities of those within eyeshot. And to never, EVER, go commando. I mean, what if you were to rip the seat out of your pants throwing on of those log things. Really. How embarrassing.

Its true, kilts are sexy.

Yeah! Kilts are really good on men! It is very usable cloth!
