About 3 months ago my 9 year old daughter and I went with my husband into Seattle. It had been awhile since we had a Starbucks and I really needed one!!! While we were in Starbucks waiting on our drinks to come up I saw this man in front of me and he was wearing a Kilt! I started to laugh, and if people were watcing me I looked like a freak nut laughing to myself.

I kept hearing my husbands voice in my head in a scotish accent saying (it's not a skirt it's a kilt) as he did often!! Then my daughter saw him!!!!!!!! Having no knowledge of kilts she starts to laugh and tries to whisper to me that the man in front of us is wearing a skirt and then I totally lost it!!

I laugh when I get nervous and I do not feel comfortable in crowds and that makes the laughing worse. I was noticed by this point and by the man with the kilt so I had to tell him everything. But he was nice and seemed a cut up so he was good about it!

Itís ok to laugh when you see a man in a kilt. Thatís one of the reasons we wear them.

Ahhh . . . it's the old laughing to keep from crying manouever -- the truth is, they're so gorgeous and manly, such an evocation of the times when men were men, the way you can hardly stand the gritty, hard-bitten beauty of it all, that you start to giggle so you won't sob out loud.

Sorry. There's been a little drop of Drambuie in the air, it being the holidays and all. But I do mean it. There's no finer sight than a kilted man. smile.gif

I make curious ladies laugh when I wear my kilt. Sooner or later one or two of them (usually wedding guests where I have been booked to play) will ask me what's worn under your kilt?

I'll say "Nothing!, everything is in perfect working order"
Or "Shoes and socks"
Or "Nessie"

The Scots of course insist that the pipes produce music. But the point is after all not too important. For those who love them, the pipes can evoke more vividly than any other instrument, high emotion, they can inspire valor, and tell of tragic tales of battles long ago. They can call forth merriment or sentiment. It does not matter what the sound is called, those who are deaf to its merits would not understand anyway.

I get a lot of curious looks when I'm out in public in a kilt. More so in the US than Canada. I think Canadians are a bit more used to it seeing that they're less removed from the British influence. Actually the most trouble I get is from my own family, especially my daughter. When she see's me in a kilt she says, "Look! Dad's wearing a skirt!" She knows it'll get my hackles up. (Why is it we had children? I can't remember)

Cheers!

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

I love tlo wear the Kilt because it's right for me! And I never laugh except when a Lad asks what is under my kilt. I laugh and reply, "Same as you would have but in better shape."
