hello kitty

Like the previous posts, I'm going to end this week's with a visual aid as well. This was taken yesterday as I was driving (Yes I was multitasking but shhhh). Riding up ahead of me were a couple of guys on their bike. The passenger had a child's backpack on his person. He's obviously not ashamed to carry it in lieu of an adult one. I wonder what he had stored in it. I don't know where else you'd see this. I mean it's a common sight here in Bermuda but there's always a kid present somewhere in the vicinity of the kid backpack. But not here! Really, how many other guys would be man enough to don on a kid's backpack minus the kid? Definitely not anywhere else!

to this, my significant other would say "he is comfortable in his masculinity" - the same thing he says when he is saddled with my handbag outside a women's fitting room!

Hey! I have no problem doing any such thing. :-p

Then again, I cam completely fashion-illiterate, oblivious to the rest of normal society! he he he...

The text wasn't dislaying correctly, I had to highlight it. At least it wasn't a teddy bear backpack! Remember those from the 90s? :)

F: Good for him! I find no matter how much guys hate it, they will still hold their ladies' bag!

MrBogus: I want to say that you haven't changed at all but then I can't really remember what your fashion sense was like! Thanks for the visit & the comment. :)

Zen: Still not highlighted, but that's ok! Yes I do so remember those. I still see them around, but thankfully they're on kids (of course this is other parts of the world).

In Africa (where I was born) people see clothing as useful and decorative and beyond that.. no-one cares much.

My favourite memory is of seeing a tall athletic young man with a beard proudly passing by wearing a woman's large peach picture hat complete with bow and ostrich feather. To a western eye he looked like a rather "camp" cavalier, but to his friends he was a totally cool dude. :-)
