I did not just see that!

It's what happens in Texas when the dh wears his kilt out in public. People will look at him and then look away quickly. He wore it relatively often in San Diego but every one was pretty casual about it, starting up conversations with him about it even. Out here, not so much. He wore it last night to his gaming escapade (Dungeons and Dragons, remember those old games? We still play them) since they are into such little oddities the dh had to show his off. It is a cool kilt. So I asked him if he made his usual stop at Walgreens for snacks while wearing said kilt. He said yes so I had to ask what kind of reaction he got. His response was 'gaze aversion' . I guess Texans believe that if you don't look maybe it doesn't exist. Or maybe it's just Californication denial. Oh Texas is going to fight this kicking and screaming. Too bad it's not going to do them any good.

Ha and this reaction from people who go around wearing the biggest cowboy hat, buckle and boots that they can find! Some nerve!! I think it could be ignorance maybe they thought he was just wearing a skirt hehe :)

It's only a skirt if you don't go commando. At Renaissance faire they tie a blue string on their weenies and let it hang below the kilt so that you know its not a skirt.
