It’s so nice when you can have both at the same time.
I’m not sure if you realize it but the kilt is a very masculine piece of attire. You never want to make the mistake of calling it a skirt, especially in the presence of a man who is holding a very heavy set of bagpipes in his hands. I’m sure he could do a good deal of damage with those things if his
skirt kilt were insulted.
But seriously, I love how many different types of people can wear a kilt. And, while this is just a theory, far from making them feel emasculated, I dare say they stand just a wee bit taller. It’s fun to speculate on what these pipers do for a day job…
And finally, we will now examine up close the many faces of a piper while piping. I do not think I personally would have the bronchial fortitude to play this instrument. Just look at the faces… All I can think is that they must be popping blood vessels all over their bodies in order to accomplish this transfixing sound that I love so much.
